Wellclad Invest in SpeedClad® Technology

Wellclad have invested £100K in the purchase of two FRONIUS SpeedClad® conversion systems to provide the industry with improved, cost effective solutions. 

Welding Solutions offer annualised welding capacity in excess of 95,000hrs, working on a 24x7 basis. Capability to handle components up to 30 tonnes in weight with a working envelope of 4m x 4m x 5m. Material handling and welding capability for Pipe Cladding up to 30” diameter and 12m long.

Pipe Cladding

Twin Head capability with a size range from 4” Dia up to 30” Dia and up to 12m long. Application for : Line Pipe Cladding including induction and forged elbows and bends and piping products.


Speed Cladding

Glacier has invested in new technology called Speedclad.  This is conventional CRA Cladding but with twin tungsten and twin wire feed.  Delivering increased deposition rates. This process can provide 30% cost savings on traditional cladding due to reduced labour and welding times.
