Pressure Vessel End Caps

Our customer created the body of a pressure vessel using drawn-over mandrel tubing that was seam-welded and cut to length. They came to us for pressure vessel end caps to be made of 11-gauge steel with special carbon content. The challenge: The parts required perfect concentricity to allow robotic welding in place. Ajax developed the prototypes and production tooling to create dimensionally correct parts.
