Achieving perfect fit-up conditions

What sets us apart is our patented technology known as ZEROGAP, which creates a unique male-female bevel connection. This technology ensures impeccable alignment and facilitates easy fit-up for welding operations between pipe-components.

The concept of the ZEROGAP is rooted in its name - zero gap. It means that the male and female components fit together so closely and precisely that no space, or 'gap', remains between them. This tight, seamless fit ensures a high degree of alignment and positional accuracy, which significantly simplifies the welding process.
