Pipe Run Development Program

FastSHAPES® is the generic name for a suite of Plate & Sheet development software programs specifically designed for heavy fabrication where the main jointing technology is welding.

downarrowTYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Any large diameter pipework fabricated as "barrels"
Any large or small diameter pipework having complex 3D setting out

downarrowTECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
Confined to constant Outside Diameter, thickness pipework Development by radial line method Up to 200 pipes per run Fabrication (flat cutting) option for large diameter pipework Cutting patterns provided for mitre cut ends contained where possible within defined plate widths Mid-sections patterns provided as a composite length only, to be made up from standard length barrels Wrap-around template option for small diameter pipework Provides a single template/pipe including both ends cut and bend marks
