The development of Centre Line Alignment for welding cans of large diameter tubulars is an exciting proposition for designers. This development allows for more weight-efficient designs, as the magnitude of any change in wall thickness may be increased and the design stresses associated with plate thickness transitions are reduced to yield longer design fatigue lifetime.

The development of Centre Line Alignment for welding cans of large diameter tubulars is an exciting proposition for designers. This development allows for more weight-efficient designs, as the magnitude of any change in wall thickness may be increased and the design stresses associated with plate thickness transitions are reduced to yield longer design fatigue lifetime.

Last month Sif shared their vision and the future possibilities for the application of Centre Line Alignment assembly techniques in the Sif production facilities in a masterclass, followed by an interactive discussion with the participants that have rated the masterclass with a 7.5!

Sif is already thinking about a new subject for a next masterclass. So please let us know if you are interested in future masterclasses, than we will keep you informed: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
