The automatic tank welder machine is
specifically designed for efficient horizontal welding of
huge diameter storage tanks, ship's hull, etc., ranging
from 6m diameter and above. The recommended plate thickness
is from a minimum of 6mm to a maximum of 50mm while recommended
plate height is from a minimum of 1200mm to a maximum of
The tank top is transported by a DC gear motor. Both
the YTW 11.3 (single side welding model) and YTW 11.2 (Double
sided welding model) weld both internal and external walls
simultaneously via the submerged arc process. The flux support
unit consists of two knurled drive wheels, a belt system and
a recycling capacity of up to 95%.
The unit also incorporates a travel speed indicator with
an override fast jog button that allows the tank to be repositioned.
Travel can be manually initiated on arc start. All international standard renowned welding machine brands will fit with our tank welder.
For added safety, both welding stations are fitted with emergency stop facilities, designed to de-activate all control and wlding functions at the touch of a button. Seam tracking on the tank wall is accomplished through motorised vertical slides.
The variable travelling speed of the unit is controlled by an electrical control pendant which ranges from 0 to 1200 mm/min. Total weight of each complete frame unit is approximately 650 kg without taking account of the Power Source, Welding Head and Control.
