Our commitment to providing the highest specification Orbital Welding Equipment at the lowest market price is a fundamental objective. This coupled with a unique approach to problem solving and design has created products with innovative, practical and cost saving features that are unique to the market.

The standard Orbitec product range is manufactured by Orbitec GmbH, based near Frankfurt in Germany. Here in Derby we at Orbitec Limited have more than twenty five years experience applying the various process techniques across a diverse range of industries from Dairy to Nuclear. This combined with the ability to design and manufacture bespoke tooling means cost savings and quality improvements can be achieved on less obvious applications, often in novel and innovative ways.

The process and equipment experience available from our orbital engineers forms the bedrock of our business and provides an invaluable source of reference in support of our sales, hire, service, design and training activities.

Carl Jones

Carl has been with us since 2013, prior to joining Orbitec he worked for 18yrs with a major German tube and fitting supplier who's primary business was supplying stainless steel material to the Hygienic and High Purity industries; all of which was installed using an orbital welding process.
