Rootomatic™ is the ultimate solution for automating root pass welding on pipe

Rootomatic works in tandem with the 4D Synergy Welding™ technology, providing real-time image processing of the weld puddle and welding arc.

The Rootomatic advantage

The patented technology makes it easier to perform a good root pass with very little experience.

Fully automated root pass

Rootomatic™ fully automates root pass penetration and prevents missed fusion due to improper arc positioning. It tracks the position of the puddle and the arc to ensure complete fusion of inside edges. It also adapts to the presence of tacks while welding to produce a smooth weld bead ready for the first fill pass.

Minimal pipe welding experience required

The Rootomatic performs a 100% automatic open-bevel root pass at travel speeds between 8 and 10 in./min. (200 and 250 mm /min.) with normal fit-up imperfections (gap variations and high-low) after just 2 to 3 days of training.

Truly adaptive to changing conditions experienced by pipe fabricators

Based on Tecnar’s recommended pipe preparation, the Rootomatic adapts the welding process to varying conditions, such as changes in gap, alignment and root face by adding real-time puddle and arc image analysis to the 4D Synergy Welding algorithm, resulting in the most adaptive automated root pass welding ever engineered.
