Positioners in Stock



Proven time savings, safer and high quality welds, think DC Welding Automation Welding for new or reconditioned used welding positioning equipment. In most cases a welder positioner will pay for itself in a year or less. Positioners are designed with a square table and round is also available with 4 to 8 T slots and through-holes. The table rotates 360 degrees and has tilt capabilities through 135 degrees. High quality welding positioners have safer positioning for less worker fatigue. A huge selection of sizes and models for nearly every application are all excellent reasons for you to buy from DC Welding Automation Welding

The Mini Pro table top welding positioner is the perfect solution for welder applications needing a small, sturdy and versatile thu hole weld positioner. It has a motorized variable speed rotation with a forward-reverse switch, speed potentiometer and dynamic braking. The rotating tilting positioners rotation speed is variable from .37 to 13 RPM. The pinned tilt range is from 0 to 90 degrees with pinned 15 degree increments. An 8 diameter three-jaw chuck and 300 amp welding ground are standard. The 2.5 inch spindle through hole provides additional flexibility.

If you have a cylindrical pipe tank or vessel, Powered Tank Turning Rolls are a safe way to rotate them. Vessel Rotators have five basic styles of powered tank turning rolls to accommodate sizes weighing 1,000 pounds and up with diameters from 1" and up. Typical standard units are manufactured to accommodate as large a vessel or tanks as 240,000 tons, 21 feet in diameter. DC Welding Automation pipe rollers have been designed to accommodate parts well over a 1,000,000 pounds. Pipers Rolls and Tankers Rotators all have several common features. The 3 styles are friction driven with the exception of the Super Piper which is a direct drive unit. They all maintain a constant center line and require no adjustments for varying tank welding application diameters.

Column Boom Weld Manipulators



DC Welding Automation weld manipulators that are ideal for circumferential or longitudinal welds. They are flexible to reach inside of small internal tanks and vessels for welding both longitudinal and circumferential joints. High quality continuous welding manipulators are the most versatile of all welding positioning equipment. The control of column, boom stroke, travel car and weld torch positioning is done automatically or semi-automatically for varying welding automation applications. DC Welding Automation engineers integrate a 5 axis automated motion control with modification to the boom end on standard column and boom manipulators. Total motion control is obtainable through programmable controls.

Welding manipulators


DC Welding Automation offers Manipulator Travel Cars. They include a manual push car and a variable speed welding travel cars. The manual car rides on an inverted angle "V" track. The powered cars ride on machined rail track. The weight and gauge width of the machined rail tracks vary depending on the load capacity required.

DC Welding Automation Welding will fully recondition the welding positioning equipment to fit your welding fabrication applications with new and reconditioned used welding equipment.

Headstock tailstock positioners have fixed vertical tables that rotate the pipe in between the headstock and tail stock tables. Head-tailstocks handle large weights and sizes. They rotate a vertical table around a horizontal axis, allowing access to all sides of large weldments. The welding headstock is powered the tailstock is not. Some welding fabricators mount headstocks and tail-stocks on rails to give the welder adjustment of distance between the two positioners. DC Welding Automation Welding often mounts small items, elbows or flanges in the headstock for pipe welding fabrication. Proper capacity of a head stock and tailstocks is important when you consider the torque needed for large rotating welding applications to be mounted. Torque dictates accurately start and stop rotation without speed variation of the weldment. This is a concern particularly when positioning weldments with components located far from the center point of rotation, which creates excessive torque that can strain the weld positioner drive and gearing. DC Welding Automation Welding Reconditioned Used Headstocks and Tailstocks offer a good value for shops on a limited budget.
