Internal Welding Machine

Faster, more accurate welds in the field are made possible by CRC-Evans' IWM (Internal Welding Machine).

Part of CRC-Evans' High-Productivity Welding System, the IWM combines line-up mechanisms that clamp the pipe ends into alignment and an internal pipe welder, which automatically deposits the root bead in 1.25 minutes (typical). The machine then quickly travels down the pipe, ready to weld the next section.

CRC-Evans IWMs can weld pipe sizes from 24” to 60”. There can be as few as four welding heads and as many as ten, giving you complete flexibility and optimal speed and productivity.

Suitable for onshore & offshore applications for diameters over 24 inches.
