P&W Pipe and Welding

Hihg quality engineering expertise from Down Under

Productive pipe welding with Kemppi welding solutions

P&W Pipe and Welding is an Australian engineering company that offers a wide range of services from design to construction and installation associated with the implementation of mechanical infrastructure. Based in Burleigh Heads, Queensland, P&W has been in operation since its establishment in 2010. Their expertise includes high quality piping systems and steel structures welded and constructed from materials such as stainless steel, duplex and nickel alloys.

All welding at P&W is conducted and externally audited according to Australian and international standards. Thanks to a strong focus on quality assurance, P&W has been able to serve customers that operate under strict regulations in power, oil and gas industries.

Advanced pipe welding: Kemppi's FastMig X 450, WiseRoot+ and various other software products boosted productivity at P&W's engineering workshop while improving consistency in welding quality and providing a user-friendly experience for the welders.

Main challenge

Being a relatively young company, P&W builds its reputation by delivering the required quality on time and within budget. As fluid and gas pipes are exposed to high pressures, toxicity and flammability, it is crucial that the welds are welded properly by professionals. Taking the strict quality requirements into account, P&W was looking for reliable and efficient welding equipment that enhance their professional expertise and can perform according to the varied needs of their business.

WiseRoot+ is amazingly user-friendly and performs as advertised. It allows us to easily deal with a wide range of fit up discrepancies such as misalignment or variable root gaps. To date, we have experienced a 100% pass rate with the welds tested with WiseRoot+ using Kemppi FastMig X 450.

Kemppi's solution

Kemppi provided P&W with the ultimate pipe welding package comprising of FastMig X 450 with twin wire feeders, MatchLog function and WiseRoot+ and WisePenetration welding processes. In addition, P&W invested on a MasterTig LT 250 for TIG welding.

According to P&W's entrepreneur and director Scott Woodman, FastMig X 450 has been extremely productive since its introduction to his workshop. A seasoned welder himself, Woodman noticed many positive characteristics in using the Kemppi equipment:

  • All necessary functions are on the feeder panels for easy usability
  • WiseRoot+ compensates for individual welding techniques in achieving high quality welds
  • WisePenetration is especially well suited for fill and cap runs with great results when using mixed and CO2 gases
  • MatchLog enables changing channels on the fly, ensuring that tack welds are burnt in to avoid lack of fusion

In addition, P&W has been able to improve quality consistency at the workshop due to MatchLog's beneficial start-stop arc characteristics. This feature is especially vital when welding code quality pipe and pressure vessels, as the probability of welding defects gets higher every time welding is restarted. True risk management that extends from production to the end customer, wouldn't you agree?
