Larry Silver, President of Hollander Consultants, stated, “Placing inrepparttar top 50 ofrepparttar 102799 thousands of businesses in Oregon is certainly a testimony torepparttar 102800 care we take of our staff. We certainly appreciate that our staff feels so strongly aboutrepparttar 102801 company. Since we not only placed 5th inrepparttar 102802 employee career development and learning category, but also 6th inrepparttar 102803 category of performance management and rewards, our employees really appreciaterepparttar 102804 effort we take to ensure they are recognized forrepparttar 102805 work they do. This is very gratifying as a business owner and a skill we teach our clients to do as well, as they are all also business owners.”

Hollander Consultants is one ofrepparttar 102806 leading consulting firms inrepparttar 102807 United States and Canada forrepparttar 102808 combined dentistry, optometry and veterinary professions, and usesrepparttar 102809 administrative systems developed by business management pioneer, L. Ron Hubbard. Hollander Consultants can be found online at www.hollanderconsultants.com.

Orbital welding

Written by Mahesh Ugale

Continued from page 1

• Orbital welding may be used in applications where a tube or pipe to be welded cannot be rotated or where rotation ofrepparttar part is not practical.

• Orbital welding may be used in applications where access space restrictions limitrepparttar 102798 physical size ofrepparttar 102799 welding device. Weld heads may be used in rows of boiler tubing where it would be difficult for a manual welder to use a welding torch or viewrepparttar 102800 weld joint.

• Many other reasons exist forrepparttar 102801 use of orbital equipment over manual welding. Examples are applications where inspection ofrepparttar 102802 internal weld is not practical for each weld created. By making a sample weld coupon that passes certification,repparttar 102803 logic holds that ifrepparttar 102804 sample weld is acceptable, that successive welds created by an automatic machine withrepparttar 102805 same input parameters should also be sound.

Industries and Applications for Orbital Welding

Aerospace: As noted earlier,repparttar 102806 aerospace industry wasrepparttar 102807 first industry to recognizerepparttar 102808 requirement for orbital welding. The high-pressure systems of a single plane can have over 1,500 welded joints, all automatically created with orbital equipment.

Boiler Tube: Boiler tube installation and repairs offer a perfect application for orbital welding. Compact orbital weld heads can be clamped in place between rows of heat exchanger tubing where a manual welder would experience severe difficulty making repeatable welds.

Food, Dairy and Beverage Industries: The food, dairy and beverage industries require consistent full penetration welds on all weld joints. Most of these tubing / piping systems have schedules for cleaning and sterilization in place. For maximum piping system efficiencyrepparttar 102809 tubing must be as smooth as possible. Any pit, crevice, crack or incomplete weld joint can form a place forrepparttar 102810 fluid insiderepparttar 102811 tubing to be trapped and form a bacteria harbor.

Nuclear Piping: The nuclear industry with its severe operating environment and associated specifications for a high quality weld has long been an advocate of orbital welding.

Offshore Applications: Sub-sea hydraulic lines use materials whose properties can be altered duringrepparttar 102812 thermal changes that are normal with a weld cycle. Hydraulic joints welded with orbital equipment offer superior corrosion resistance and mechanical properties.

Pharmaceutical Industry: Pharmaceutical process lines and piping systems deliver high quality water to their processes. This requires high quality welds to ensure a source of water fromrepparttar 102813 tubes that is uncontaminated by bacteria, rust or other contaminant. Orbital welding ensures full penetration welds with no overheating occurring that could underminerepparttar 102814 corrosion resistance ofrepparttar 102815 final weld zone.

Semiconductor Industry: The semiconductor industry requires piping systems with extremely smooth internal surface finish in order to prevent contaminant buildup onrepparttar 102816 tubing walls or weld joints. Once large enough, a build up of particulate, moisture or contaminant could release and ruinrepparttar 102817 batch process.

Tube/Pipe Fittings, Valves and Regulators: Hydraulic lines and liquid and gas delivery systems all require tubing with connector fittings. Orbital systems provide a means to ensure high productivity of welding and improved weld quality. Sometimesrepparttar 102818 tubing may be welded in place to a valve or regulator body. Hererepparttar 102819 orbital weld head providesrepparttar 102820 ability to produce high quality welds in applications with restricted access torepparttar 102821 weld joint.
