BWFS Industries LLC provides complete welding and steel fabrication services on ASME Division 1 & 2 pressure vessels and piping in mild steel, stainless, duplex and several alloy steels. Additional welding and steel fabrication services are available for structural items such as skids, platforms and a multitude of custom and engineered products. We utilize two plate rolls, one of which can roll up to 1 3/8” thick by 12 feet wide pressure vessel quality plate. To further expand our capabilities, we have an advanced 5 axis plasma plate cutting machine, robotic welding, CNC cutting machines, as well as automated welding and cutting equipment. For more details on all of our services please visit our services page.
5-Axis Plate Cutting
To ensure quality, traceability, and delivery times of cut plate components, BWFS Industries, LLC invested in a Koike Versagraph plasma plate cutting machine. With the ability to control the cutting head in 5 axis allows for normal straight cut as well as beveled cut in both straight and curved cuts. Using high definition plasma and repeatability measured in thousandths of an inch, quality is excellent. This machine also has the ability to etch heat numbers and parts numbers using a low voltage plasma torch. This enables us to etch all cut pieces with markings prior to cutting to ensure 100% traceability back to the original plate. For more information on our 5-Axis Plate Cutting visit our 5-Axis Cutting page.
6-Axis Robotic Cutting & Welding
To handle production type work, where duplicated designs are required, BWFS Industries, LLC has the capability to provide 6-Axis robotic plasma cutting and welding. Running two separate stations, this machine can provide the production of numerous manual welders with the precision of a CNC machine. With optional heads this machine can switch from a high definition plasma cutting machine to GMAW or FCAW welding machine. Capable of producing ASME code quality welds, this machine can handle the production jobs that you have. For more information on our 6-Axis Robotic Cutting & Welding click the image.
Engineering & Design
For more than 20 years BWFS Industries, LLC has earned the reputation of building quality pressure vessels. To support that reputation the company has expanded and developed the engineering and design group to include a staff that is experienced in drafting using AutoCad, 3D modeling using ProE Wildfire, and finite element analysis using ANSYS FEA software. Along with a professional engineer on staff, BWFS Industries, LLC has become a very capable design company for all your vessel designs as well as structural, piping and packaging needs.

Our growth and success of our company has allowed BWFS Industries, LLC to invest in equipment that has enabled us to provide a wide array of in house services. Our sevices range from plate rolling, CNC plasma plate cutting, to CNC cutting and welding and stress relieving. To further enhance our capabilities the shop has upgraded the cranes to include (3) 50 ton, (1) 40 ton, (1) 20 ton, and (2) 10 ton overhead cranes. This gives the shop the ability to safely lift and load out up to 200,000 lbs. With a 32 foot hook height, larger vessels and modules are easily handled. Located within 10 miles of the Port of Houston enables us to provide quick and easy transportation to the port for overseas shipments. Check out our Fabrication page for more information on our Fabrication capabilities.
In order to provide quicker deliveries and to complement our plate cutting, BWFS Industries, LLC has two plate rolls, one of which is capable of rolling up to 1 3/8 thick by 12 foot wide pressure vessel grade plate. With a constant inventory of plate on hand, shells can be cut and rolled within days versus 2-3 weeks. BWFS Industries, LLC has purchased over a million pounds of plate in a single year.

Products on occasion require stress relieving either for ASME code requirements or process concerns. BWFS Industries, LLC has taken that need and invested in equipment that allows us to stress relieve vessels up to 60 feet long at our shop facility. The reduced trucking and handling allows us to pass that savings to the client. For more information on our Stress Relieving click on the image.
