  • YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO, November 29, 2018 - Taylor-Winfield Technologies (TWT) is proud to announce the successful installation and commissioning of their “MEGALAP” Narrow Lap Seam Welder.  The modern “O” frame PrepLap design welder is installed into one of the largest continuous galvanizing lines in North America.  This Heavy Duty PrepLap Narrow Lap Seam Welder has been designed to weld the widest range of grades and gauges for galvanized strip processing than ever before.  The first of its kind, the welder replaced a 56 year old Taylor-Winfield Vertical Narrow Lap Seam Welder for one of the world’s largest steel producers located in the American Midwest.  Even though the original machine was fully operational, it struggled to meet the customer’s gauge, grade and weld overthickness requirements of today’s materials. 

    The new Heavy Duty PrepLap, commonly referred to as the “MEGALAP” by its designers and the end-user, is capable of joining material from .010” (.25mm) - .250” (6.35mm) with a near “0” joint over thickness.  Included in the design is TWT’s pre and post weld induction heat treatment system to help expand the grade and gauge range of materials capable of being joined by the welder.  The robust “floating” O-Frame and other modern machine design attributes enables the welder to push well beyond the limits of a traditional narrow lap seam welder and successfully join emerging AHSS steel grades in the industry.  With over a century of experience in seam welding and induction heating technologies, the birth this impressive heavy-gauge strip welder with its seemingly infinite capabilities to manage the welding process creates dependable weld results customers have grown to expect from TWT.

    Taylor-Winfield’s legacy dates to 1882.  As a material joining solution provider, Taylor-Winfield prides itself on bringing custom, common-sense solutions to customer needs to help them succeed in their markets.

  • The VeriWeld-SE™ Weld Seam Monitor is designed in response to customer demands for continuous “real-time” feedback of machine performance and welder operation validation for new and existing coil joining welders. The goal of the VeriWeld-SE™ is to prevent costly weld breaks by identifying potential problems before the weld is released into the processing line.  As a secondary benefit, the monitor also assists in identifying items on the machine, such as weld head bearing failure, secondary shunting, shear blade wear, and other preventative maintenance issues that should be addressed for optimal machine performance. Full integration is available for existing Taylor-Winfield and any other manufacturer’s welders.

    Taylor-Winfield is a leader in providing coil joining welders for continuous production of steel since the inception of the industry.  The VeriWeld-SE™ Weld Seam Monitor records, analyzes and stores machine operating and weld schedule parameters using customer defined preset variables to validate weld quality. The weld data is read at 2,000 samples per second and the results are archived within the system and transferable to MS Excel and “upper level” SPC and SQC systems. This technology was developed in Taylor-Winfield’s Research & Development Laboratory in collaboration with several major steel producers. 

    Taylor-Winfield Technologies, Inc. is dedicated to delivering advanced manufacturing technologies and process solutions that enable our customers to compete in today’s ever changing marketplace. By providing simple to complex metal joining and material handling systems for steel production with on-going field service and replacement parts support, Taylor-Winfield remains the company customer’s trust.

  • World’s largest steel producer selects Taylor-Winfield Technologies to integrate Post-Weld Induction Heating Systems into their existing seam and flash welders. Today’s increasing demand for Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) grades is leading steel producers to find ways to expand the range of materials capable of being joined by existing coil joining welding machines. In response, Taylor-Winfield developed the AnnWeld™ post-weld induction annealing system for seam and flash welders.  The system is integral to the welder and mounted in-line with seam welding systems or as an additional process step for flash welders.  The process improves ductility in the welded joint without sacrificing weld strength which prevents weld breaks during subsequent line processes.  Full integration is available for existing Taylor-Winfield and any other manufacturer’s welders.

    Taylor-Winfield has manufactured induction heating equipment and systems since the 1950’s.  The induction heating power supplies range from 1 KW to 1 MW with frequency ranges from 3 kHz to 6 MHz with custom engineered coils and systems available.  The expertise to join and temper AHSS grades was developed in Taylor-Winfield’s Research & Development Laboratory in collaboration with several major steel producers.  The AnnWeld™ system includes accurate and repeatable heat cycles, precision temperature control using pyrometer feedback, automatic load tuning, and custom manufactured coils sized for use with existing welders.  The AnnWeld™ system is designed for customer requirements and can be used with any welder in any process line.
