At Solar’s Channelview facility, also known as TurboFab, we are moving away from traditional fabrication mindsets. Solar is leveraging our engaged, multi-skilled, safety-focused team to produce high quality, cost effective products quickly. Process methods such as 6 Sigma and Lean are utilized to eliminate costly waste. In addition, Solar is leading the industry by developing the know-how to successfully apply automation in a low volume, high product mix environment for structural steel and pipe preparation, as well as welding of simple and complex steel structures and pipe spooling. Automation can reduce labor and fabrication cycle times dramatically, especially when designs focus on maximizing the use of robotics.
