New! Plasma keyhole welding derrick
Our new plasma keyhole welding derrick has been installed and initial tests look promising!
The welding derrick uses the same technology as our existing plasma keyhole welding installation, but has an automatic clamping system with integrated backing and cooling so that a flat or centred plate no longer needs to be spot welded, and just needs to be clamped together before welding.
Flat sheets thus remain straight and flat during welding; the machine produces a perfect continuous weld (for stainless steel, within a range of 2 to 10 mm) in one single pass and works at a very high speed.

In the autumn Deprest contributed to an artistic project, which consisted in an aluminium structure for a major show.
The structure involved one large central ring with a diameter of 8 metres and 4 hinged metal legs.
Watch the video to get a good feel of what went on in our workshop. It also demonstrates how the articulations of the structure were tested.

Another pressure vessel has left the building
It’s not suprising to see a pressure vessel leaving Deprest. We at Deprest are specialized in pressure vessel. Each week some vessels – large or small – leave the site. Our pressure vessels are made in steel, stainless steel and special alloys. We elaborate and follow projects from A to Z, inclusive technical calculations, design, testing, complete execution, and the testing and follow-up of the necessary inspections.
