System for Welding Cylinders

A manufacturer of steel cylinders for fire suppression systems wanted to move from using heavy wall pipe cut to length with end caps welded on both ends. They wanted a new manufacturing line of equipment to produce tanks from raw plate which is rolled, seam welded, end cap welded and then x-ray tested with an output of (5) 24 diameter full length tanks per hour. The pressure cylinders range in...
