Heavy Engineering Equipments State Company " HEESCo" was established in 1963
before more than half century to be one of the largest state industrial companies in Iraq specialized at manufacturing and erecting heavy engineering equipments required for many industrial fields with its highly qualified staff of about 2144 employees working at various fields ( engineering ,technical ,administrative ,..etc.).
During the last 50 years of its age HEESCO has been developing techniques and capabilities required to the production process throughout using highly advanced machinery from internationally well-known resources so that it can cope with the global technical standards needed for covering the local markets of gas/oil industries in particular .
Activity of engineering process :
Heesco has a professional engineering staff of specialized at preparing designs required for the manufacturing process paths starting with production , quality , qualitative control and qualitative confirmation needed for products like pressure vessels , all kind of storage tanks ,gates used for watering projects ,heat exchangers, steam-boilers ..etc in accordance with the international global standards.
Cutting /shearing techniques
Many techniques in cutting metals are used in HEESCo such as :
*Hot cutting and shearing techniques both manual /automatic are used..
*Cold cutting by using hydraulic machinery .
*Shearing razors machinery.
*Hydraulic and mechanical presses.
The most advanced welding methods of are used in Heesco such as:
*classical manual welding MAW.
*submerged arc welding (tractor-type)SAW.
*column –boom welding.
*mig welding ,Tig welding ,c.n.c flame plasma.
Heesco is unique among the local companies in manufacturing all types of curved dish-ends whether deep or shallow with thickness that might exceeds 24mm and diameter of about 3200mm for ends made of carbon –steel plates ,moreover the possibility of manufacturing other types of curved dish –ends of stainless steel plates or shields but with less thicknesses than that when in carbon steel , also it's possibility of manufacturing half –spherical curved ends (attached pieces).
Heesco has a wide range of experience of bending metal shields through using hydraulic multi-drums bending/ringing machinery that can bend shields of about 65mm thickness and 3000 mm width for shields/plates made of carbon steel .
HEESCo has the remarkable basic activities of manufacturing and production procedures by using specified machinery mostly programmable such as ;machining ,turning ,(vertical/horizontal) milling ,drilling, grinding ,boring and cutting machines that have the abaility to ..deal with various kind of metal shields that reaches 3 m diameter ,7m length,4m high.
It is one of the most important and seriously considered activity in HEESCo starting with pre-determining of raw material specifications ,purchasing ,fetching them, passing with technical standard tests ,production process ,ending with storing process and inspection certificate that is issued by professional test- laboratories that makes all tests to metals ,mechanical ,chemical ,metallurgical gradient-tests to various metals ,tests for relevant to welding process materials ,via highly qualified staff using most advanced standards of testing techniques e.g. metallurgical ,non-destructive testes by x-ray, ultra-sonic and dye penetrate .
