Pandjiris, Inc., has been involved in the design and manufacturing of weld tooling and positioning equipment since 1946. Our products are utilized in a wide variety of metal fabricating industries including truck and trailer manufacturing, earth-moving equipment, metal furniture and container manufacturing, power generation equipment, defense, shipbuilding, railroad car production, pressure vessel production, and aerospace. Pandjiris' facility is located at 5151 Northrup Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri. The facility has over 46,000 square feet of office, warehouse and production floor space.
Pandjiris' production plant incorporates two large bays oriented to provide a smooth logical production flow for product manufacture. Our fabrication, machining, assembly, painting and electrical departments are capable of producing the automated systems we manufacture from raw material to final product. Each production bay is equipped with large capacity overhead cranes that run the full length of the bays and are capable of lifting even the largest of our products. Our engineering department is staffed with engineers experienced in the design of sophisticated tooling dedicated to the automation of production style welding applications.
Pandjiris' utilization of proven design technology mixed with innovative tooling concepts and welding expertise provides customers with automated welding systems that increase product quality and productive throughput. Pandjiris can provide customers with complete turnkey systems that increase production capabilities while reducing labor costs.
Pandjiris has designed and patented a wide range of mechanical designs throughout our history. Early patents included specialized welding grippers designed specifically for the harsh environment of the welding industry. Special clamping systems were patented based on the unique characteristics and results they offered. An example is our Four-Bar Linkage clamping system that provides a directional clamping force ensuring pressure in a manner that results in consistent joint fit-up on longitudinal seams. This design facilitates repeatable quality welds. The Four-Bar Linkage Clamping System has been utilized on a number of weld seamers supplied to customers. The most notable application is the 45'cantilevered seamer supplied for the manufacture of Delta II Launch Vehicle fuel tanks. A Four-Bar Linkage clamping system provides greater fit-up and clamping capabilities than the standard paddle finger design offered on most industrial seamers. Pandjiris continues to offer technological advances in the design of equipment for the welding industry.
Pandjiris is moving into the 21st century with a vibrant outlook on the advanced systems capability we offer our customers. Pandjiris continues to make significant strides in controls, robotics and total system integration capabilities so our customers can be assured they are partnering with a motivated solution-driven team. Pandjiris takes pride in offering the capability of complete turnkey solutions for our customers.
Pandjiris makes a full commitment to provide high quality automated systems for our customers and directs its quality assurance efforts to ensure that products meet or exceed the requirements of our manufacturing customers. Pandjiris' facilities and personnel have proven to be more than capable of providing quality welding systems delivered within the time frames customers request. Pandjiris takes specific steps to ensure the commitments made to our customers are satisfied. We employ program management techniques and philosophies to ensure all Pandjiris' team members approach commitments with the same goal in mind:
Satisfy the need of the customer.
