In January, Elijah and his parents will travel to New York City, where he will be under the care of specialists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, one of the nation’s leading pediatric cancer treatment centers, for his latest round of treatments.

Members of the Piping Industry are learning new automatic welding techniques and procedures that will be used at the Oregon Clean Energy Center. These automated procedures will exponentially cut down complete weld time compared to hand welding by decreasing end preparation time while increasing deposition rate and overall weld precision.These advantages are made possible due to two innovative machines made by Tri Tool.  

The first machine is Tri Tool’s RBL-G2 split frame next generation Clamshell Lathe. This tool was designed with safety as the top priority, and delivers faster, better performance when doing end prep work.  

The safety of the tool comes from a fixed-position tripper mechanism with tapered drive housing, which minimizes pinch points, giving the operator increased safety when using the lathe.
