Through our Orbital Welding Lab and Repair Facilities, Critical Systems is constantly looking for ways to provide product innovations and advancements for orbital products and processes.
Since 2013, the CSI fleet of orbital tube welding equipment has become the largest of its kind, in the world. Comprised wholly of AMI M207/217 Power Supplies, Weld Heads, Fixturing and Tri-Tool Cutting and Facing Equipment. All CSI equipment is upgraded with more precise and durable tooling, resulting in better welds & increased productivity.
The standard mechanical home pin design is a well known culprit for many weld failures and a shortened number of weld cycles. After 2 years of customer input, design refinements, and testing, CSI has come up with a solution providing vast improvements in this critical part of your welding tool kit.
Many weld heads aren’t designed to protect from strain on weld head cables. As the leads are pulled, the conduit stretches, which eventually causes the tubing and wires to break.
CSI weld head handles incorporate a unique internal “clamp block” into a highly durable injection molded handle. The clamp block secures the cabling, while absorbing the tensile stress placed on the cables during operation.
A stainless steel hook is also incorporated into the handle design. The hook can swing 300 degrees and can be easily removed or placed on the opposite side of the handle based on user preference.

CSI also offers ‘zipper-tubing’ sheath as a jacket for the weld head cables & wires.
CSI strives to consistently innovate toward more robust and functional equipment with improved validated systems.
Since 1998, Critical Systems, Inc. (CSI) has been providing Gas Cabinet, Valve Manifold Boxes & Gas Abatement Systems (Gas Cabinets and Gas Scrubbers, etc.), and Orbital Welding Rental, Lease, Repair and Training Services related to process tool facilitation for Semiconductor, Biotech, Pharmaceutical and related industries. Company headquarters are in Boise, ID, with additional locations in Burnsville, MN, and Shrewsbury, PA, Austin, TX and Draper, UT.
