Robotic Pipe Cap Removal (“The Predator”)

This solution was developed in close cooperation with a customer. They process countless individual pipes off-shore into one long pipeline that is then sunk onto the seabed. Before the pipes can be welded together in the so-called prep area on a ship, the end caps must be removed. At an earlier stage, after applying the […]

Tape Applicator

The Tape Application unit can be used to protect the pipe cutback with tape in a (spiral) coating conveyor. This system is developed in order to increase the safety level within the pipe coating area and to achieve a better result for cutback coating removal. With the pipe ends taped, the applied pipe coating can […]

Internal Blasting & Coating Plant

Internal coating or lining of pipes is a common technology to protect steel pipelines against corrosion or to reduce flow friction. It is widely used in (long distance) transport lines for oil, gas, fuel, condensate, chemicals, potable- or industrial water, sewage, outfall pipes and drilling pipes. Depending on the transport medium, its aggressiveness and other […]

Synthetic water pipes: the best is yet to come

Do you ever get the feeling that we have lost our sense of amazement? After all, we take things like streaming videos and music entirely for granted and we thoughtlessly pick up the garden hose to give our plants a drink. Yet even behind such a ‘simple’ garden device, a special technique is hidden. This […]
