H6PS-100: Power Elevated Headstock Welding Positioner
The H6PS-100 Powered Elevation Headstock Welding positioner is the introductory-level powered elevation positioner. It has a load capacity of 6,000 lbs (3-tons) at 12” overhung load. Its turning torque is 50,000 in-lbs. This allows for smooth, safe and controlled rotation of the weldment during operation. The rotation speed settings operate between 0.1 rotations per minute (RPM) and 3.0 RPM.
The powered height range has working height adjustability between 32 - 72 inches. The powered elevation is precise to a fraction of an inch. Custom height range options are available.
The H6PS powered headstock positioner comes with a footprint dimension of 60” x 42” x 95”. It has a compact and convenient design that's ideal for smaller shops wanting a high capacity powered elevation positioner, but are tight on floor space. The H6PS has a total mass of 2,500 lbs, excluding chuck or other fixtures.
This Headstock positioner has power requirements of 480V by default. Alternate power options if 208-600V, 50 or 60 Hz input power are modifiable. Ground capacity for the H6PS comes standard at 800 Amps. This is also customizable to 200 Amp, 400 Amp or 1500 Amp, depending on your shop’s requirements.
The H6PS is pair able with a synchronized powered elevating tailstock. This affords greater flexibility when lifting and rotating heavy work pieces such as trailer frames and large vessels.
Control options along with a selection of different fixtures and welding cell accompaniments are often purchased with this positioner.
Hand pendants with forward and reverse function are available, along with hand pendants with digital readout for more precise RPM, as well as a wireless hand pendant option. Forward reverse foot switches are also available, along with variable speed foot switch. HMI controls can be set up and are frequently used when integrating a headstock positioner to a column and boom welding manipulator or robotic welding cell for a centralized control system.
Grippers, chucks and elbow jigs are often paired with the H6PS.
Headstock Positioner Welding Cell
The H6PS can integrate with LJ’s column and boom welding manipulators using open arc and submerged arc welding processes. Add outboard roller support stands or a welding robot to fully automate the material handling and welding to reduce incidental human error and speed up the fabrication process for maximum productivity in your yard.
