Established in 1980 by Jack O'Dwyer, Pressure Welding Manufacturing Ltd. has been providing high end mechanical engineering services for over 37 years to
multi-national pharmaceutical, cosmetic, beverage, food and semiconductor industries.
Our specialities include:
At Pressure Welding Manufacturing Ltd., we pride ourselves on the level of quality of work and cost efficient solutions that we provide for our customers. Additionally, we are proud of our impeccable safety record of zero incidents in our 37 year history.
Backround on orbital welding:
Orbital welding is the most effective and hygienic method for the joining of stainless steel tubing for systems in which the products flowing through them must be maintained in a clean and/or sterile condition. The capability of making smooth, crevice-free is essential for controlling the growth of micro organisms in hygienic piping systems.
Orbital welding at Pressure Welding Manufacturing Ltd.:
Pressure Welding Manufacturing Ltd. was the first company in Ireland to invest in computerised orbital welding in the late 80’s, giving us a level of expertise in this area that cannot be rivaled. We have been providing orbital welding services to
multi-national pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, drinks and semi conductor industries all over Ireland in that time.
We have a capacity of five orbital welding machines and all of our employees are certified and trained to the highest standard. We have a clean room specifically built in our workshop for our orbital welding operations. We provide a full traceability documentation package for submission to the QA department with every project we complete, whether large or small. This documentation package typically includes:
The importance of orbital welding for these industries:
Food, Dairy and Beverage Industries: The food, dairy and beverage industries require consistent full penetration welds on all weld joints. Most of these tubing/piping systems have schedules for cleaning and sterilization in place. For maximum piping system efficiency the tubing must be as smooth as possible. Any pit, crevice, crack or incomplete weld joint can form a place for the fluid inside the tubing to be trapped and form a bacteria harbor.
Pharmaceutical Industry: Pharmaceutical process lines and piping systems deliver high quality water to their processes. This requires high quality welds to ensure a source of water from the tubes that is uncontaminated by bacteria, rust or other contaminant. Orbital welding ensures full penetration welds with no overheating occurring that could undermine the corrosion resistance of the final weld zone.
Semiconductor Industry: The semiconductor industry requires piping systems with extremely smooth internal surface finish in order to prevent contaminant buildup on the tubing walls or weld joints. Once large enough, a build up of particulate, moisture or contaminant could release and ruin the batch process.
In 2015, Sinead O’Dwyer, Chief Operations Manager won the Established Business Category of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur Competition in Tipperary and also won Tipperary’s Best Young Entrepreneur.
