Chosen By SpaceX

Walhonde Tools technology has been proven and utilized in the building of SpaceX’s new Starship, which is a fully reusable, super–heavy-lift launch vehicle and spacecraft. Our process took complex thin walled pipe application from 30 minutes to three minutes with precise, and repeatable success.

“We used the 3″ clocking fixture yesterday to fit up and weld a 3” SCH160 elbow to a bent piece of pipe where the weld joint was in the tangent of the bend (J-Bevel joint design). We use FARO technology when we clock our fittings. We were able to get the joint clocked to within 0.15° (Satisfactory by our standard but could have gotten it closer if needed.) By using that fixture, it was about 50% or more reduction in time. Great product! I wish I knew about it long ago.” – US Navy Nuclear Weld Shop Foreman

Chosen by Big Oil

Multi billion dollar oil platforms delivering tens of millions of dollars of oil per day. We were tasked with designing a tool for the “change out” of both 28″ and 30″ heavy wall pipe. Allotted 24 hours for each fitup. Completed fitups in one hour each, saving 46 hours.
