What is a Welding Positioner?

A welding positioner is basically a mechanical device that will provide a flexible working platform for your business’s welding operations. Using a weld positioner, you can comfortably work being stationed at a fixed position.

The positioner will assist you to control and position the working material. You can adjust the working platform in any way that suits the best position for you to work with.

Additionally, it will help you to handle the workpiece in any desired technique of how you intend to fabricate it.

Regardless of how heavy the weight of the weldments is, or how complex the design of the end-product might be, suitable weld positioners will simplify all these tasks for you.

Offering a well-suited welding positioner in your company will promote a reasonable and safe environment for your welders.

How Does the Welding Positioner Work?

The base principle of positioners is to grab and hold on to a certain piece and then rotate and move it in the position that a welder needs for comfortable welding.

In other words, a positioner is working as a more accurate and automated version of the welder’s hand and is also capable of lifting weights beyond the welder’s abilities.

We already know that a welding manipulator is far different from a welding positioner. Welding manipulators work by controlling and moving the head of the weld.

The positioners move the workpiece for better welding while the manipulators move the welding head or torch closer to the workpiece. The goal of manipulators is to allow welders to reach locations that are far and complex by moving the weld head close to the workpiece.

As the name suggests, rotary welding positioners rotate the workpiece by 360 degrees- horizontally or vertically. They also come with a jaw chuck of different shapes for different workpieces.

What are The Applications or Uses of Welding Positioners?

In the field of professional welding operations, the welding positioners are performing a vital role in providing a professional and effective outcome.

You can use a welding positioner to obtain a flexible working platform. It will assist you to place the weldments on the working platform and handle it comfortably according to your intended purpose.

If you require to handle the weldment by rotating only around the horizontal or vertical axis, you will find a well-suited welding positioner for your job.

Again, if you require to tilt the weldment to any certain degree necessary to provide you with provisions for the working surface, a welding positioner will come to good use.

Following that, this will allow you to rotate the weldment about multiple axes and tilt the weldment at the desired angle. You can also elevate or lower the working platform at desired levels using the specified welding positioners.

In short, you can use weld positioners for performing any kind of simple or complex welding operations. Working with a comfortable and flexible platform will suit your weldment handling necessity any way you intend to.

Easier handling of weldments by a positioner makes these procedures possible for you, which, in some cases, are even impossible with manual welding apparatus.

Head-stock and Tail-stock are individual units of weld positioners. Both head-stock and tail-stock are single-axis flexible components.

You can rotate the weldments in the vertical direction only. But it restricts the rotation of the working platform in the horizontal direction.

In most cases, a head-stock and tail-stock are used together. When working with long weldments, you can use these components together to prop the weldment, and also provide rotational flexibility.

Head & Tail Stock welding positioners

Head & Tail Stock welding positioner

It’s a type of welding positioner that involves two movements along two axes: tilting the table & rotating the table. A 2-axis weld positioner that can tilt the table and rotate the material mounted on top of it. This is a way to identify 2-axis positioners.

Using a 2-axis tilt Gear welding positioner, you can position the weldment on the working platform to rotate on the horizontal axis, tilt the weldment at designated angles, and elevate the weldment at the desired level.

  • DIY Welding Positioner

DIY meaning Do-It-Yourself welding positioners are positioners that cannot be ordered as a whole but must be assembled.

DIY welding positioners usually contain a kit of electronic parts that are assembled using a guide to create a complete working welding positioner. These kits are what people utilize to assemble and build their welding positioner.

What Materials Supported to be Weld by Welding Positioner?

Welding positioners don’t necessarily have torches with them. They’re called “welding positioners” because that is what they are designed for; to position material in a way that can be easily welded.

You can weld many types of materials depending on the positioner’s ability to grab and hold onto a material. The most common materials you use welding positioners for include:

👉  Tubes and Fittings

👉  Tanks and Vessels

👉  Uneven Workpieces

👉  And Many More!

You use welding positioners to assist you with welding – it’s not that picky when it comes to the workpieces you’ll be working with.

Are Welding Positioners Electric and Automatic?

Yes, most welding positioners are electronic while some operate on hydraulic laws also known as classic positioners.

Due to the industrial usage, automation, utility, and ease of electronic positioners, they became the industry standard and the majority of the positioners used today are electronic.

When purchasing welding positioners, you can choose from the following processors:

  • Manual Weld Positioners
  • Semi-Automatic Weld Positioners
  • Automatic Weld Positioners

You can ask your manufacturer which ones they offer so you don’t get confused.

Welding Positioner vs Welding Manipulator

A lot of people have the misconception that they’re the same but they’re different. The goal in the end, for every welding machine, is to help improve the process of welding but every machine has its special ability or task.

How do these two machines differ in terms of tasks?

Welding manipulators are machines that help by moving the weld material to the workpiece while welding positioners move the workpiece in different directions as the welders want them to be.

Technically, the difference is with the particular variable moved in the process.

What is Pipe Positioner Chuck/Jaw?

Also known as “chucks,” positioner jaws are tools to keep a workpiece in place. They’re attached and mounted to the faceplate to clutch and make sure that the workpiece is held tightly.

Since most workpieces are pipes(round), most of the jaws are made to clutch circular pieces of different sizes.

How to Choose the Correct Type of Welding Positioner?

When choosing the right welding positioner, you need to keep in mind what type to choose. Different types of welding positioners will assist in unique flexibility options to handle the weldments.

You must do the selection after understanding the handling method you need with your materials and select the suitable one from the wide range of welding positioners for sale.

a.     Welding Turntable:

A welding turntable is a single-axis component. It is a welding table positioner that will provide you with a flexible working platform, rotatable in the horizontal direction only, and restricts rotation in the vertical direction.

Here, you can place your weldments on the working platform and rotate them around the horizontal axis to shift the position of the weldments.

The platform can be rotated both in the clockwise and anti-clockwise directions whichever is suitable for you to work with. Even these rotations on the welding turntable can be made manually or automatically depending on what type of machine you choose.

This will assist you to continue the welding operations in a flexible method, by just rotating the welding table positioner. While being stationed in a comfortable position, will offer you higher levels of efficiency in working.

b.     Head-stock and Tail-stock:

Head-stock and Tail-stock are individual units. Both head-stock and tail-stock are also single-axis flexible components.

The difference between a turntable with head-stock and tail-stock is that, while the turntable is rotatable in the horizontal direction only, these are rotatable and function as welding rotator positioners in the vertical direction only.

But it restricts the rotation of the working platform in the horizontal direction. The head-stock is a power-driven welding rotator’s positioner that you can rotate about the platform’s centreline.

If you require access at the endpoint of weldments or a specific side of the working material, a head-stock alone can help you with these kinds of jobs. A tail-stock is a free-rotating platform identical to a head-stock.

But in typical cases, it doesn’t have a facility for power-driven operation. So, you have to operate it manually.

Although head-stock and tail-stock are individual welding rotator positioners and can be used for individual purposes if it fits your job, in most cases, these are used together.

When working with long weldments, you can use these welding rotators positioner together to prop the weldment, and also provide rotational flexibility.

If you use both the rotary welding positioner together, both the components will mutually support the weight of the weldment. So, the weight of the weldment won’t be of major concern.

headstock and tailstock welding positioner

c.     Positioner:

Apart from the turntable, head-stock, and tail-stock, a positioner welding machine is typically a two-axis component. Working with it will allow you to satisfy both the functions as you would get with a turntable and rotary welding positioners like head-stock and tail-stock.

You can position the weldment on the working platform to rotate in the horizontal axis, tilt the weldment at designated angles and also elevate the weldment at the desired level. In the manufacturing industry, you can find different variants of positioner welding machines that offer different functionality.

The most common model for positioners is the floor-mounted model with 135° tilt function with horizontal rotatability access of 360°.

You can use this positioner for a dynamic set of functionalities like revolving around a horizontal axis, tilting in designated angles, and raising at designated levels for your suitable operation.

Satisfying these factors, you can find other models of positioners, varying in terms of load-bearing heavy-duty capacity and a few other extra operational capabilities.

Tilt Angle of Tilt Gear Welding Positioner

Using a tilt Gear welding positioner, you can position the weldment on the working platform to rotate on the horizontal axis, tilt the weldment at designated angles and also elevate the weldment to the desired level.

There is a specification ‘tilting angle’ mentioned in Tilt Gear Welding Positioner. By it, you can understand the heavy weldments can be inclined up to what degree of inclination angle while withstanding high torque tilt and ensuring safe operation.

What are The Core Advantages Of a 3-axis Hydraulic Weld Positioner?

With the 3-axis hydraulic weld positioner, you can position the weldment on the working platform to rotate in the horizontal axis, handle the weldments to your convenience and elevate the weldment at the desired level using a hydraulic lifting mechanism.
