Pipe and vessel fabrication will never be the same again. LJ has recently delivered the innovative 10TMR Pipe Double Jointing System to a very happy customer. This system effortlessly brings together, aligns, levels and rotates pipes or vessels, making time consuming fit-up a thing of the past.
This brand new offering from LJ reduces joint fit up time by 50% or more, while drastically improving safety and worker comfort. Operators can now get even more done with less effort, which is music to the ears of management teams who are focused on cycle time and throughput improvements more than ever. LJ designed the 10TMR system specifically to minimize the overall price point, without sacrificing any essential performance features, resulting in maximum ROI for our customers.
How it works:
1. Load the pipes or vessels on each pair of driver/idler and idler/idler
- The pipes can be moved towards each other with a simple hand pendant, utilizing the powered track drive.
- With the use of a cordless drill, the operator can align the pipes left/right and up/down, in seconds.
- Once aligned, the pipe/vessel is ready for tacking and root pass without the use of cranes, jacks, wedges or other cumbersome methods. High traction dual drive rotation of the pipe is controlled by a hand pendant and/or footswitch.
- If Sub-arc welding is required, the 10TMR can be integrated with a boom and column manipulator for full rotation speed and weld start controls from the main manipulator control panel. http://www.ljwelding.com/products/type/manipulators/
- Fit-up or double-jointing of pipe or vessels;

- Minimize (or eliminate) crane usage during fit up
- Decrease fit-up time by 50% or more
- Minimize cycle times and increase throughput with minimal shop space
- Increase safety by eliminating fit-up by wood cribbing, wedges, crane/forklift and of course, the old trusty sledgehammer.
