Hire Welding Positioners, Head and Tail Stock and Turntables

Have you considered the benefits of Hiring Welding Positioners for your Project and Workforce?

The concepts of positioning are the same for all weldments, large or small. A properly positioned weldment, regardless of the size, reduces welder fatigue, increases safety, improves weld quality, and saves on production floor space.

It is a well-known fact that positioning equipment can assist welders in manoeuvring and welding large assemblies. What might not be so well-known is that many small assemblies also can be mechanically positioned to provide the welder with the same benefits.

The principles of positioning are the same for all weldments, large or small. The base product is affixed to the positioning equipment and then maneuvered by mechanical means into a position that allows the most effective welding and assembly.

As parts or subassemblies are added, the entire weldment is moved to allow easy access to weld joints. A properly positioned weldment, regardless of the size, reduces welder fatigue, increases safety, improves weld quality, and saves on production floor space. By moving the weldment using mechanical means and positioning the welding area into a comfortable range, welders are not forced to weld out of position or in an uncomfortable position. Safety is improved when the weldment is anchored to a suitable positioning device. Cranes, chains, slings, and other nonrigid methods of moving a part might create uncontrolled motion, which can be dangerous. With the help of a positioner, welders don’t have to maneuver themselves underneath a possibly heavy weldment, reducing the risk of injury from falling sparks, slag, or parts.
