The Piper Bug Pipe Welding System is a digitally controlled programmable welding travel carriage integrated
with Lincoln Electric Invertec V350-PRO Power Source.
The Piper Bug offers a positive rack and pinion drive system and a digital control box in which all welding parameters can be programmed for multi-pass, multi-layer welds on process piping and cross country pipe lines. The Piper Bug will increase productivity and weld capacity while reducing costs, it’s reported.
According to the manufacturer, less welder skill and physical effort is required when using mechanized welding; handheld wire welding results in a typical operating factor (or percent arc-on time) of 40-50%, while mechanized welding increases the operating factor to 70% or higher.
