1PT-300: 3000 LB GEAR TILT PIPE WELDING POSITIONER
The 1PT-300 gear tilt positioner is among the most versatile L J family of positioners. It is built to suit repetitive welding processes. The heavy duty positioner is able to support up to 3,000 lbs. at 0” overhung load. It can support up to 1,700 lbs. at 12” overhung load.
Its constant speed motor can make a 135o forward tilt within 25 seconds for operator convenience. With the steady rotation pace, 1PT-300 can tilt your workpiece at a rate of 0.1-0.9 rotations-per-minute (RPM). Its turning torque of 20,000 lbs makes it safely turn heavy workpieces with ease.
The 1PT-300 has an adjustable height setting that allows for 5 different height settings. They range from 29” to 49” in 5” increments. There are table slots provided to make mounting and fixing of pipes much easier. Its tilt protector makes it possible for users to assume precise welding positions.
This pipe turning positioner features a table diameter of 26”. This is available with a 48” OD slotted faceplate.
Ground capacities supported range from 200Amp, 400Amp, 800Amp and 1500Amp. For synchronizing with additional components, an HMI panel can be conveniently used as a master controller for the system.
This pipe turning positioner uses an 110V, 1-ph power input but 208 – 600 V input power options are available.
1PT-300 Gear Tilt Welding Positioner Accessories
For added ease of use for your project, the 1PT-300 comes with optional accessories.
1PT-300 Gear Tilt Welding Positioner Control Options
The foot switch comes with Forward/Reverse functionality and is the most popular add-on. There are also varying speed styles of foot switch that can be upgraded.
Hand pendant options are also available with forward/reverse functionality. Upgrade your hand pendant to digital readout or make it wireless. All controls come standard with a 0 to 100% knob but can have 10-turn potentiometer
HMI panels are ideal for gear tilt positioner welding cells that involve a welding manipulator or welding robot.
