• LJ’s selection of Pipe Turning Positioners are used for positioning heavy-wall, large diameter pipe for spooling applications with large offset loads.

Lower Costs: Reducing start and stops while increasing the welding productivity of oddly shaped parts, resulting in lower costs related to welding


Enhanced Weld Experience: Ensuring smoother control of the rotating movement along with enhanced stability and accessibility to significantly enhance welding quality


Worker Ergonomics: 360° spin that allows a welder to stand in one position and constantly work on a level surface


Welding Quality: LJ’s Pipe Welding Positioners ensure repeatable quality between batches and operators


Pipe turning positioners are essential tools for ensuring the perfect alignment and rotation of pipes during welding operations. They offer a flexible and efficient solution for welding pipes of different sizes and shapes, providing a safe and stable platform for the welding process.

Our pipe turning positioners are designed with high-quality components, making them durable and long-lasting in even the most challenging welding environments. With a load capacity of up to 30 tons, they can handle pipes of different diameters and lengths with ease. LJ's pipe turning positioners are equipped with a range of features and capabilities, including adjustable rotation speeds, precise control over tilt angles, and advanced safety mechanisms to prevent any accidents during operation.


Consistent accuracy and welding results

Welders using our positioners can enjoy greater accuracy and consistency in their welding results, since they ensure a steady and constant speed of rotation, guaranteeing that the weld bead is uniform around the pipe's circumference. This significantly improves the weld's quality, strength, and overall integrity. The positioners also reduce fatigue associated with manually rotating heavy pipes, leading to a faster and more productive welding process.


These machines are suitable for use in various welding applications, including in the oil, gas, construction, and mining industries. They can rotate both horizontally and vertically, making them ideal for welding pipes that are mounted in tight or upside-down positions.
