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
