The series of head and tailstock positioners that we manufacture can be used for a variety of parts and weldments. A head and tailstock welding positioner is typically used for long rectangular shapes that must be supported from both ends. Both fixed height rotation centerline and power elevating models are available for ergonomic placement of the weldment.

Screw Jack and Geared Elevation models are available. Optional manual and powered mobile sub-bases can be provided on rails for varying part lengths, which allow different length weldments to be positioned with one station. With a large rotation speed range, all welding processes can be accommodated, such as MIG, TIG, SAW, and Laser welding.

A typical configuration consists of a driven headstock positioner with an idler tailstock. Dual synchronized headstocks can be used for exceptionally long parts or parts that have torsion concerns. Robotic versions and manual applications can be accommodated depending on your specific needs.
