Conventional Rotators or Pipe Welding Rollers are used to assist the welding process by safely rotating pipespool sections that are neither standard in diameter, length, configuration or weight, Pipe welding equipment can be set up with many different rotating and positioning arrangements. Self-aligning welding rotators automatically adjust to take care of any ovality or diameter variation along the length of the work piece. This allows the work piece to be automatically rotated into precisely the required position for fitting, assembly and welding. Not sure what type of welding rotator you need?

When welding is being carried out on a pipe or vessel, there are a lot of things to keep in mind. Some of these are vitally important, and if done correctly can affect the entirety of the weld.
Pipe welding can be quite complex work that requires a lot of skill, but welding rotators make that work much easier.
Why do we need pipe welding rotators?
When performing a weld on a pipe or cylindrical work piece, usually the weld must cover the circumference of the pipe evenly. It’s also important for the weld to be of a high quality and strong, as a lot of pressure could be put on the pipe depending on what the final work is meant for.
When pipe welding is done by hand, the welder must move around the pipe slowly as they carry out the work. Without a welding rotator, this is difficult and necessary work in order to get the correct weld.
Using a pipe rotator enables the tank/vessel to be turned at desired speeds enabling the welder to carry out the work far easier & more efficiently, giving a higher quality weld to form roll steel tubulars.
