Need advice "from zero upwards" about using welding tractors.
We have a bridge to make. Overbridge over a railway. Two lines.
Structurally it's typical steel bridge type - sides / "parapets" form
two main load-bearing beams, with connecting floor forming an overall
"channel" structure. With the road traffic flowing "through" /
largely within the structure.
Lots of fillet welds - but some butt, for seaming plates together.
Wish is to use welding tractor to highly mechanise the weld. Avoid
stop/starts, promote extreme consistency of the weld runs, etc. All
things to send the fatigue endurance way up.
Don't know what questions to start to ask...
Where do I start?
What do we develop?
Then moving into production - what's the real deal?
