Not only do we have the industry’s most skilled welders and support staff on our team, but a breadth of state-of-the-art equipment and technologies make our processes and product superior to all others. What does that mean for you? Accurate, on-time projects that meet and/or exceed expectations – every time.

PIPING ENGINEERING-TANK & PLATE ENGINEERING-DOCUMENT CONTROL SUPPORT

Here are some of the highlights of our on-staff engineering team and their capabilities:

  • A dedicated document control group and controlled receipt and distribution of contract documents system uses bar codes for optimum data and filing accuracy.
  • An electronic file management system accessible to all shop and office personnel gives us instant access to client specifications and related information and drawings, helping ensure ongoing accuracy of the project.
  • EDI and 3D capabilities using Spoolgen mean automated material takeoff and reduced delay. 2D drawings are handled with I-Sketch.
  • An electronic library of documents related to the work being performed throughout the company, including job specs, drawings, codes, etc., so there are no gray areas when it comes to accurate information. Our “key document” process puts all information needed to fabricate the spool to its project and code requirements on the shop drawings; this functions as a Quality Control Traveler document to ensure that everyone is “on the same page.” Document control packages include spool drawing, iso drawing, material test reports, weld map/QA spool drawing, PMI reports, heat treat charts, pain reports, hardness reports, RT reports, PT/MT reports.
  • Fabrication Progress Reports provide exact and detailed status of each spool through each step of its fabrication, from isometric receipt right through shipment. This information is also readily available to customers.
  • Our Isometric Flow Chart controls the accurate fabrication and flow of spools through engineering and the shop. This multi-step process includes a number of precision checkpoints along the way, with automatic flagging and detailing of every spool requirement involved in the fabrication.
  • Pressure Vessel design using Codeware Compress software and design/detailing using AutoCAD and Inventor.

STAINLESS STEEL & HIGH ALLOY BAY

To prevent surface contamination, all of our stainless steel fabrication takes place in segregated bays.

    COATING FACILITIES

    At Team’s SSPC-QP3 Certified Coating Facilities we apply leading edge coating technologies for surface preparations and coating applications. Our NACE and SSPC certified staff oversee the finishing operation to pipe spools, vessels, and structural steel located at our home plant in Kaukauna, WI. This all takes place in over 61,000 square feet that house two enclosed blast booths and four coating application booths.

    COMBINATION (MOD) BAY

    We also have a combination bay where we work on projects that require materials used in the carbon bay or the stainless bay.

    DUAL CHAMBER X-RAY VAULT

    Our dual-chamber x-ray vault allows a constant stream of spools – while an x-ray is being performed on one side of the vault, the other is being emptied and reloaded, so there’s no downtime. Our vault is capable of handling extra-long spools, up to 75 feet. We load each spool onto a Team-designed wagon – the same wagon it sits on during blasting and painting. This time-saving step makes our process more efficient. Our welders must prove their competency to make x-ray quality welds prior to making any production welds, and must maintain that competency for periods of 6 months or re-qualify in order to continue performing. Radiography interpretations are performed by a third party to ensure accuracy.

    HGG PIPE PROFILER

      In some ways our pipe profiler is much like others: it cuts pipe from 3-48” in diameter, it cuts with plasma and oxyfuel, it conveys pipe from an outside rack right to the machine, it’s controlled by a 5-axis CNC cutting head, and we use computerized touch screens to program cuts. But it differs from others, too, with features that ensure quality and efficiency:

    • Uses a Kjellberg 440I Fine Focus Plasma cutter – the most powerful high-precision plasma cutting unit in the world
    • Chucks the pipe, resulting in more accurate cuts
    • Cutting carriage moves faster, adding to time-savings
    • Quicker changeover from oxyfuel to plasma
    • Finished cut pieces can be convoyed to exit the rack while still cutting additional pieces
    • Uses air scribe marking system – having the ability to locate shoes, supports, holes to be drilled and write text
    • Ability to view programmed cut pieces in 3D with dimensions prior to cutting

    MESSER PLASMA TABLE

    • HPR400XD Hypertherm plasma source
    • Cuts from 26ga. – 3" thick with plasma torch
    • Global rotator delta bevel head +/- 45 degrees bevel range
    • Accuracy +/- .002"
    • Position speeds of 3000" per minute
    • Virtual service remote diagnostics ensure the machine has minimal downtime

    MATERIAL WAREHOUSING

    Only Team has an impressive 75,000 square foot indoor receiving warehouse, with more than 7,000 inside rack storage locations and more than 100 cantilever pipe racks. This investment in secure storage away from the effects of weather is key to swift flow of materials from receipt to stage to storage to production. Adding to the efficiency is that our state-of-the-art blasting table can blast fittings right in the material receipt warehouse, minimizing the handling of fittings, elbow and other pieces.

    All that you’ve read is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak; only a tour of our facilities would do the list of capabilities justice (and to arrange one, all you have to do is go to our Contact page and make a request!). Team has some of the best practices, people, equipment and technology in the industry, all of which contribute to making Team a leader in both quality and performance.
