Steve Sayers, a pipefitter/welder with Shinn Mechanical, use the Pro-Pulse process for a cap weld.

Shinn Mechanical’s award-winning boom system removes cable clutter from the floor to increase safety, as well as helps reduce material handling time by 10 percent.

With four programs stored on each side of his PipeWorx wire feeder, pipefitter/welder Steve Sayers reports that he can weld almost any diameter pipe. 

Compared to conventional short circuit MIG, RMD provides more consistent tie-in to the sidewall, as well as a flatter bead profile.

PipeWorx features the Pro-Pulse™ pulsed MIG and RMD™ (Regulated Metal Deposition) processes, as well as Stick, TIG and Flux Cored processes that have been optimized specifically for pipe fabrication.
By eliminating unproductive process changeover time to “all of two seconds,” coupled with faster welding speeds, Shinn Mechanical pipefitter/welders can easily achieve their daily goal of 200 weld inches (i.e., completing 20 joints on 10-in. diameter pipe).
Among its recent money-saving accomplishments, Shinn Mechanical reduced material handling time by at least 10 percent — and increased safety — by building and designing “the ultimate welding boom”
