A new welded beam workshop was opened at PROTOS Ltd (Mogilev district) on October 26. A new production line mounted at the workshop was purchased out of the proceeds of a credit of the Finnish bank and is equipped with metal fabrication machinery produced by “Lincoln Electric” (USA). Its production capacity is about 1,000 tons of welded beams per month. A high quality of production is provided with documentary evidence.
A standard beam makes up 15 m length, and 1.5 m width. At the same time the equipment installed has facilities necessary for production of flanged beams (those having an "Н"-shaped sectional view) with 200 mm width and 4 mm depth of web. Welding has automatic mode of operation; optical sensors monitor bad connection, thus ensuring continuous welding.
