Can you confidently respond to an orbital welding RFQ?

Cost over-runs. QA/QC problems you didn’t anticipate.  Too much or too little equipment on hand.   Manpower issues.  Deadlines that come too quickly.   We can help you avoid these issues AND learn to operate the equipment effectively.

Critical Systems Orbital Welding Capabilities

CSI personnel have been on all sides of orbital welding: as a contractor, as a customer, in QA/QC, repair and product innovation, and in high purity technical standards development.

  • Over 100 years combined experience in Orbital Welding
  • AMI Certified Training & Repair Technicians
  • Orbital Tube and Pipe Welding Training on all AMI equipment
  • Orbital Weld Lab and Innovation Center
  • 24×7 Job Support

AMI’s ONLY outside Certified Training Technicians in the U.S.

Orbital Training from AMI Certified Technician

Critical Systems works closely with Arc Machines to ensure we are providing the most comprehensive instruction available.  Whether the course is led by AMI technical field personnel, CSI’s Certfied Training & Repair Technicians, or both — the training will encompass the latest in AMI product changes and best practices in orbital welding.    We provide welders the training AND the certification to back it up.


CSI’s Orbital Weld Training Program

We take a very practical approach to orbital welding training, including some basic project management skills.  Here are the fundamental topics and activities covered:

Orbital Welding Training from Arc Machines Certified Technician

  •  Customized, hands-on instruction (1st and foremost!)
  •  Understanding job specs and requirements
  •  Estimating job costs including overlooked factors (QA/QC, work environment)
  •  Determining man-hours (factoring in set up, fabrication times, cool down etc.)
  •  Anticipating common mistakes and pitfalls
  •  Specialized weld schedules and processes
  •  Programming for specialized recipes
  •  Understanding and achieving purity specs
  •  Orbital innovations to aid in quality & efficiency
  •  Basic maintenance, troubleshooting procedures

Training is held at a CSI facility (Boise, ID or Shrewsbury, PA).  The program can be completed in 1-3 days depending on training objectives and requirements.

The Result

Welders will walk away from a CSI training class with both the technical knowledge and a bigger picture understanding of how to approach most orbital projects.   This will lead to increased productivity, lower costs, winning more bids, and ultimately more profitable business.
