Easy to fit is the new welding solution for pipes and fittings, which enables considerable savings throughout the supply chain and can thereby boost the profit in the pipe welding process. The idea of this pipe prepping system has been developed by Erne Fittings in Austria for fitting solutions. In cooperation with DWT in Germany the perfect tools for portable pipe bevelling machines have been developed. Nowadays Pipe welding is still a job for well skilled specialists. To adjust the pipe, to make a good weld preparation and finally to achieve a perfect weld seam for the pipe junction in terms of quality is a sophisticated challenge.
Especially for high pressure pipes, even if these specialists are available, it is a complicate, time consuming and expansive operation. For highEasy to fit wall-thickness pipe still mistakes can happen to specialists and create a lot of additional work in the factory or on-site. Scientific research by the German University in Chemnitz and by the government welding institute SLV Halle confirm, that the properties of the Easy-to-Fit weld seam are equivalent to or even better than conventional V-welds. Either for automated welding or manual pipe welding the system is simply perfect and the gap-free root can easily be TIG welded.
