Manufacturing in Alaska

Nov 11, 2013

In Alaska, steel tanks are manufactured with industrial robots to help maintain their integrity while also increasing precision, accuracy, and efficiency. The steel tanks depend on the robots to product a final product that holds up against drastic temperatures and harsh environments.


There are sev­er­al jobs that don’t trans­late to the frigid tem­per­a­tures of the Great White North – para­sail­ing coach, beach vol­ley­ball instruc­tor, swamp boat cap­tain – but some of the more tra­di­tion jobs like man­u­fac­tur­ing are going strong, even up in snowy Alas­ka. And what’s help­ing that man­u­fac­tur­ing along even more? That’s right – robot­ic automa­tion.

There are sev­er­al indus­tries in Alas­ka, but one impor­tant man­u­fac­tur­ing niche that sticks out is the tank fab­ri­ca­tion indus­try. Steel tanks are impor­tant all over the Unit­ed States to hold water, sewage, and nat­ur­al gas, among oth­er sub­stances. In our 49th state, these tanks have to be able to hold up against dras­tic tem­per­a­tures, some that dip well below 0 degrees.

When steel fab­ri­ca­tion busi­ness­es, like Greer Tank and Weld­ing in Anchor­age and Fair­banks, AK, want to find the right weld­ing appa­ra­tus for a strong, high-qual­i­ty weld, they should turn to a robot­ic welder to suit their needs. By choos­ing a steel weld­ing robots for their appli­ca­tions, man­u­fac­tur­ers are able to weld faster and get bet­ter qual­i­ty prod­ucts out to cus­tomers sooner.

Greer Tank and Weld­ing also offers a water­jet ser­vice, which, once again, can be per­formed more effi­cient­ly by robots. When man­u­fac­tur­ers invest in a robot­ic water­jet sys­tem, they are choos­ing a sys­tem that will use less water and recy­cle the water it does use so that it can be used again dur­ing the appli­ca­tion. This makes the robot­ic water­jet sys­tem not only more afford­able, but also more envi­ron­men­tal­ly friendly.
