British Federal, the West Midlands-based resistance welding equipment and welding controls manufacturer, has received a £300,000 order for a DW100/6 100kVA automatic drum-forming and welding machine from the Shanwei Group, the chemical adhesive product manufacturer based in Zhuhai, China.
The machine, equipped with a swing arm `touch pad’ control and MP3HPS-DW welding controls, is able to weld 210-litre drums at up to 720 units per hour. It will be supplied with tooling for three different size drums.
British Federal will also be supplying an additional set of `hour glass’ rolls and crushing tools as part of the order.
Delivery of the machine is due in the early autumn, in order to be installed and running for the Shanwei Group’s anniversary celebrations.
