300-Units Automatic Welding Robot for China’s West-East Gas Project

E-Motion designed and built the welding robots for China’s West-East Gas Pipeline Project. The 4,000 kilometres (2,500 mi) long pipeline runs from Lunnan in Xinjiang to Shanghai, passes through 66 cities in the 10 provinces in China.

Starting from the beginning of 1998, E-Motion spent nearly 2 years on temperature, humidity, landforms, and terrain researches and material tests. From plateau to desert, our team has overcomed harsh environment and numerous difficulties; obtained a great volum of data; and successfully developed a fully automatic pipeline welding robot for the West-East Gas Pipeline project.

This welding robot use state-of-the-art control system, which is suitable for all environments, and easy to operate. We continued to improve the functions along with the progress of the project. This equipment has played an important role in the construction of natural gas pipeline in China, as well as in many other countries.
