Welding Positioning Equipment

Macton welding positioners lift and rotate long, heavy weldments and place them in the optimal position for flat welding. This horizontal weld position is faster and safer than an overhead welding position. The headstock and tailstock configuration allows the user to rotate the weldment along its center axis. Dual 10-ton ball screw jacks mounted on both the headstock and tailstock raise and lower the weld frame and are driven by a single electric motor through a worm gearbox to ensure synchronicity. Linear encoders mounted on each jack screw (four total) ensure alignment between the headstock and tailstock lift mechanisms, as well as between the pair of jack screws on the headstock and tailstock to make sure the weldment is not flexed or bowed.

 

 

Positioner and Frame Tooling Assemblies

  • Current model rated at 32,000 lbs capacity - higher capacities available.
  • Lifting elevations: 25" to 80", 360° rotation - other lifting elevations available.
  • 4-point headstock-tailstock configuration that is mechanically connected by the weld frame.
  • Dual 10-ton ball screw jacks mounted on both the headstock and tailstock. Each pair of screw jacks is driven by a single electric motor through a worm gearbox to ensure synchronicity.
  • Linear encoders mounted on each jack screw (four total) to ensure alignment between the headstock and tailstock lift mechanisms, as well as between the pair of jack screws on the headstock and tailstock.
  • Limit switches installed to limit the travel of the jack screws, and hard stops at the maximum and minimum vertical positions.
  • Permanently lubricated positive guide roller systems.
  • Clear access through the center of the tailstock provided for future additional services to be routed to the mounting fixture.
  • The mounting beam is rotated by a slewing drive.
  • Interlocks provided to prevent the unit from rotating when mounting frame is not elevated high enough to accommodate the frame's rotation.
  • Customized weld frames available.
