Apache Stainless Equipment Corporation is excited to announce new in-house automated head making capabilities. The new equipment allows Apache to control process and timing of tank manufacturing projects.  Apache, located in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, manufactures stainless and carbon steel tanks, and other high alloy ASME atmospheric vessels.

An investment of $1.5 million, Apache is positioning to grow tank and vessel manufacturing processes. “The new head making equipment allows us to expand our head making capacity,” says President Ed Paradowski, “customers will benefit from reduced time to delivery and also overall consistency.”

The equipment has capabilities for dozens of combinations of head styles and bevel options. Apache manufactures heads ranging from 30” to 192” in diameter. Tanks, vessels and components, including heads, are ASME certified for the pharmaceutical, health and beauty, chemical, petroleum, pulp and paper, biotechnology and food and beverage industries.
