Abstract: The questions of application of automatic and robotic installations for welding of technological pipelines of strapping of pump units with a diameter from 27 to 89 mm from austenitic steels are considered. Domestic and foreign experience of welding of small diameter pipes by means of automatic installations in factory conditions is generalized. The effectiveness of the use of automated systems compared with manual arc welding, the reduction of defects in welded joints, increase stability and repeatability of the welding, reduce the influence of the human factor. Variants of optimization of elements of a pipeline binding are considered and recommendations on expediency of their application are given. It is established that the reduction of the number of welded joints of technological pipelines of pump strapping can be achieved by optimizing the nomenclature of welded elements (tees, pipes, etc.), as well as by enlarging the elements of pipeline strapping, which will allow them to be manufactured on pipe bending equipment. These measures allow to reduce the number of welded joints by 14 %. The introduction of automatic installations will improve the quality of welded joints, reduce the amount of work due to optimization of welded structures, reduce the duration of the production cycle, labor and energy resources. Studies have established the feasibility of welding of piping of pump units of small diameter pipes the welding machine with rotator, orbital welding heads open and closed types.

Keywords: weld, main pipeline, welding, pipe, weld joint, pump unit, pipeline of strapping of pump units, automatic installation for welding, robotic installation for welding.
