MacAljon Boosts Thin-Wall Tank Productivity By Over 50%

thin-wall tank

MacAljon, an industrial general contracting firm, has increased the productivity of its thin-wall tank manufacturing operation by more than 50% using the Red-D-Arc RDA MFUB-TW (fit-up bed for thin-wall cans).

Fit-up time has been decreased by 20% and the use of spider bracing is no longer required. With no spider bracing to get in the way, a manipulator is now used to perform SAW ID circumference welding which has increased productivity by 30%.

The RDA MFUB-TW system is specially designed for the construction of thin-wall vessels ranging in size from 10ft to 15ft, 6in in diameter (custom sizes are available).

Our patented system is fitted with independently-adjustable vertical-rolls to support, align and compensate for tank non-concentricity when assembling multiple thin-wall sections which eliminates the need for spider bracing.

If you work with vessels that require the use of spider bracing or that have a wall thickness of between 3/16in and 3/8in, contact the Red-D-Arc sales team to learn more about the RDA MFUB-TW and how it can increase the productivity of your thin-wall tank manufacturing operation.

For more information, please contact Red-D-Arc.

Several MX350 welding modules can be powered by either an electric power-source or an engine-driven power source for DC positive stick, MIG, and SubArc welding...
