Compact positioner handles pieces more than 1,100 lbs.
Koike Aronson Inc./Ransome offers the LD-600R, a compact tilt/turn positioner that can handle pieces weighing more than 1,100 lbs., 6 in. off the table. It features a standard footswitch and pendant controls, as well as a protractor dial indicator. The compact size and square footprint design allow simplified movement around the work area.
The positioner can be used with GTAW and GMAW machines. A new noise tolerance design reduces the impact of noise generated during GTAW to help ensure stable rotation. The antidust and -spatter design allows stable operation even in harsh welding environments. Options include a torch stand, automatic welding controller, and work chuck.
