Home > POSITIONING > Manipulator

A manipulator consists of a base and vertical column. The column rotates 360 degrees around the vertical axis. A saddle travels up and down the vertical column, carries a boom that travels in and out along the horizontal. Welding head with different weld gears for TIG, MIG or SAW can be mounted on either ends of the boom and located to the desired position for welding.

For heavy duty or precision welding, it is singularly the most versatile piece of equipment directly associated with automatic welding.  It is designed to duplicate the function of a man, as related to welding, but it can carry out these functions on distance and weight scales that man alone cannot approach. When mounted on a travel car, it also movers along the shop, performing a variety of welding functions at the various stops.
