Niklas Nordin has been working with tank building since 1990. When he started using the new generation of MIG/MAG machines to weld tanks instead of traditional stick welding rods, he came up with the idea of rotating the entire tank and mechanised the welding process. In 1998, he designed and developed the 1st generation of the Nordweld equipment. Over the following years, he continued to develop, test and refine the equipment. In 2014, together with Lennart Karlsson, a mechanical design engineer with over 40-year of experience, he developed the 3rd generation and the current edition of the system. They increased the tank capacity, added different building methods, and improved the system´s flexibility and feasibility.
