“Designed to semi-automate the pipe welding process by working collaboratively with an operator, Novarc’s SWR increases the capacity of pipe shops, lowers the cost per joint and increases the weld quality. We are extremely impressed with the SWR’s ability to weld pipe modules up to 30 feet while taking only an 8 x 4 foot area. In fact, Novarc’s SWR has the potential to have a significant impact on the pipe fabrication process industry due to the shortage of trained pipe welders in a growing market of more than 10,000 pipe welding shops globally.”

Michael Morgan, GM: Automation, Lincoln Electric Company of Canada
