High-Purity Orbital Welding Services

Orbital welding is, by far, the cleanest and most efficient way to join tubes, flanges, elbows, joints and more regardless of the application or industry. Axenics specializes in cleanroom orbital welding for high-purity stainless steel, Inconel and titanium. In order to achieve the cleanest environment possible, tubes and fittings are welded in a high-purity, contaminant-free environment.

Axenics specializes in performing cleanroom orbital welding services and vacuum manifolds in tubing ranging from ⅛-inch diameter to 4-inch diameter. Axenics uses argon for both external and internal purges to keep the welds exceptionally clean. Our orbital welds achieve 100% penetration to ensure that they meet your specifications and standards.

We use computerized orbital welding technology, allowing us to set the welding schedule ahead of time. The orbital welding machine adjusts the process by specifying the particular metal to be welded. This saves a considerable amount of lead time.

Orbital welding produces repeated high purity and quality, consistent welds and is used often by the technicians at Axenics. There are many benefits for using orbital welding for a project.

Benefits of Orbital Welding

  • It’s Clean: It’s important to keep contaminants away from metal tubing during the welding process since impurities trapped inside could ruin an entire process, resulting in a significant waste of time and money. Orbital welding is typically performed in a cleanroom setting where tubes and fittings can be welded in a high-purity, contaminant-free environment. The majority of our orbital welding is performed in a Class 100 Cleanroom environment.
  • It’s Efficient: Because the welds created are consistent and clean, the entire welding process becomes more efficient. Computerized orbital welding can make the process even more efficient, can be scheduled ahead of time, and is fully documented. This decreases production time and costs.
  • It’s More Productive: Orbital welding is a more productive use of labor, as the machinery is doing the majority of the work. Though there are upfront costs to acquire the appropriate equipment, it cuts down on labor requirements and lead time in the long run.
  • It Produces Superior Welds: While skilled manual welders can certainly create high-quality welds for specific purposes, an orbital weld performed using the right equipment and settings will always result in a better-quality weld. This is crucial in applications within the semiconductor and pharmaceutical industries where there are strict requirements to be met.
  • It Produces Consistent Welds: Orbital welding will always produce more consistent welds. This is due to the ability to set the orbital welding equipment to a specific program, allowing the system to repeat the exact same welds over and over again without error or defects.
  • It Doesn’t Require Certification: With a considerable shortage of certified welders in the field today, it can be difficult to find manual welders with the necessary certifications and expertise to perform manual welding operations. Orbital welding doesn’t require certification since the equipment can be operated by a skilled technician trained in welding.
  • It Solves Unique Problems: Orbital welding for components is great but for unique manufacturing situations, such as in cases where it is not feasible or practical to rotate a piece of tubing or pipe to be welded. It can be used in cases where welding must be performed in a tight space that wouldn’t be possible with manual welding.
  • It Shortens Lead Times: When multiple identical welds are being performed via a machine, you can test a sample weld, rather than having to test every weld. Since the machine is repeating the weld automatically, the integrity of the sample weld should hold true for all of the welds.

High-Purity Welding in a Cleanroom

Axenics understands the importance of keeping damaging corrosives away from metal tubing. Impurities trapped inside the tube could collapse the project and cause a significant loss of time and money. Axenics has developed precise cleanroom orbital welding practices for tubing in high purity gas boxes, gas and fluid handling systems, and more.

High-purity welding is crucial to maintaining clean parts during the manufacturing process. Why? Because certain contaminants can be extremely damaging to metal tubing over time. When corrosive or oxidizing contaminants and other impurities get trapped inside the metal tubing, you risk the integrity of the entire system.

A dirty weld or a weld with high oxidation can cause contaminants to spread throughout the entire system and may cause a complete breakdown.

High-Purity Cleanroom Orbital Welding

High Purity Applications

Although orbital welding is ideal for any industry, specific industries require pure orbital welding. The semiconductor, medical device and aerospace industries are the most notable industries requiring high-purity welds.

Our orbital welding is performed in a cleanroom setting with a controlled environment, preventing fewer contaminants from entering the weld area. This is important because the gases or fluids going through the tubing must remain purified.

For larger projects that necessitate multiple and identical welds, orbital welding is a game-changer. It saves a significant amount of time and translates into lower overhead costs, superior-quality welds, and shorter lead times. This efficiency and cost-effectiveness should give you the confidence and reassurance you need for your investment.

Orbital TIG welding

TIG welding a.ka. gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) is an extremely accurate and refined process developed by Russell Meredith of Northrop Aircraft Corporation during World War II. TIG welding played a huge role in military aircraft manufacturing, and while the process has advanced over the decades, it is often considered the ideal solution for projects with a need for top-quality, precision welds achieved in very tight spaces.

Due to its intricate nature, TIG welding is difficult to master. The process requires the use of all of the welder’s extremities, as the welder is typically standing on one foot while using a foot pedal remote with the other foot. The welder wields the welding torch in one hand, while the other holds the metal that will be used to produce a highly precise, clean weld.
