Many have asked over the past of a good pricing / estimating package.
Trimble have come up trumps with Tekla PowerFab.
Not only does it estimate the project it can also undertake Production Tracking, Material Management, Inspections & Quality as well as Loading / Shipping.

I have seen allot of crap pricing packages out there over the years and this is the first one I can confidently say that it works. Bit of work setting it up with rates but once that’s completed, pricing each job from there on is easy and quick.

I attach a short video, its a take-off of a portal.
We will have videos of the Production tracking etc from tomorrow on.
Enjoy and if you have any questions

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Family, Friends and Staff of Lixnaw Fabrication in Kerry on the passing of Tommy Molyneaux. Many of you would have known Tommy who founded the company in 1993 and was very good to us over the past years.
May Tommy RIP.

It must also be noted; if you are asked in your specifications of contract to work to the BCSA “Black Book” NSSS7 National Structural Steel Specifications. This is a private publication by a non EU organisation. There are details published that different to EN 1090 which we work to.
It also states that ISO EN 3834 is a requirement when undertaking Structural Steel, so be very careful.

If you are exporting structural steel to the UK from the 1st January, you will require UKCA cert for EN 1090.
The UK has added that, in order to comply with their BS EN 1090, you must also have ISO EN 3834 which is a separate audit which covers Quality Requirements for Fusion Welding.

Some Irish Notified Bodies which undertake EN 1090 can also issue a UKCA cert from January (one audit which will then issue you with both CE & UKCA)

ISO EN 3834 is detailed and complex, much of it is covered in 1090 but there is still much more to do.
If you require 3834, please give yourself enough time to put it in place.

Any questions, give me a shout.
Thanks,
Pat

Design Pro Robotics are a company based in Co. Limerick and we have been working with them over the past 12 months to promote robotics within the industry and to arrange adequate training.

We have access to 100% funding to pay for the course which will be for 8 weeks at the factory in Limerick. 6 people at a time will be trained so it’s very much one to one.

The training will cover Carbon, Stainless and Aluminum welding, the operation and programming of such robots.

The course will begin in 3-4 weeks time and participants must have at least basic weld qualifications like those that we carry out.

I think it’s the future for the industry. My son who is 18 signed up for it today.
Once completed, a European ISO certification will be issued but it also opens doors for other industries like pharma.

If you are interested or require further info, give me a bell.
Separately if you want a tour of the factory to see if robotic welding is for you, we arrange this regularly.
