A crucial part of any manual or robotic welding operation is how the part is positioned. Our rollover stations can be easily integrated into your existing system or assembly line to help optimize your processes and procedures.
Why Employ a Head stock/Tail stock Work Positioner?
Designed for the assembly, material handling and welding applications industries, Headstock & Tailstock elevating and tilt work positioners can be customized to fit your facility's requirements including fixed‐fixed, fixed‐adjustable, fixed‐mobile, and fully portable positioner options.
- A headstock/tailstock spins on both the vertical and horizontal axis.
- Rotating about the horizontal axis – coupled with a custom fixture design – a rollover for material handling 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, and torch angles resulting in improved quality when using the material handling rotisserie.
- A work positioner will translate vertical position welds to an optimal flat or horizontal position.
- In all applications [inspection, assembly, cleaning, etc] the part is rotated into the worker envelope, reducing ergonomic fatigue, increasing productivity and up-time as the weld positioner offers optimal usability.
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
