Head Stock-Tail Stock Positioners

Custom Solutions for your Parts Positioning needs! Head Stock-Tail Stock Positioners

Why a Positioner?
A crucial part of any manual or robotic welding operation is how the part is positioned. Our positioners can be easily integrated into your existing system or assembly line to help optimize your processes and procedures.

Positioner Benefits.
A properly positioned weldment, regardless of the size, reduces welder fatigue, increases safety, improves weld quality, and saves on production floor space. By relocating the weldment or assembly component, workers are not forced into an unsafe or ergonomically uncomfortable position.

Head Stock-Tail Stock Positioners

Why choose a Head stock/Tail stock over a Rotator?

  • A rotator only spins about the vertical axis.  A rotator provides NO access to the bottom or fixtured side of the part. 
  • Rotating about the horizontal axis – coupled with a custom fixture design – a HS-TS provides clear access to the top, bottom, front and back of the part.
  • In a welding application, welds are presented to the operator with optimal weld positioning, torch access, torch angles and resulting in improved quality.  
  • A rotator will not provide the same flexibility. Vertical welds will always be vertical welds on a rotator while a HS-TS will translate vertical position welds to an optimal flat or horizontal position.
  • In an all applications [inspection, assembly, cleaning, etc] the part is rotated into the worker envelope, reducing ergonomic concerns, increasing productivity and up-time
