Machines like the 4×4 ft Ransome Weld Manipulator with travel car are designed to speed up the welding process in a number of ways. The purpose of a welding manipulator like this one, is to hold the welding equipment over a work piece so that the operator does not have to hold it in his or her hands while the part is moving beneath the torch. The part being welded is usually moved or rotated under the torch by use of a positioner or a set of tank turning rolls. By using a manipulator as a fixture to hold the equipment steady, the welding can take place over a longer period of time without fatigue from the operator which can result in multiple starts and stops. With a manipulator you only need one start and stop to complete most welds. This reduction in starts and stops minimizes the possibility of weld defects which can sometimes be caused from improper starting and stopping. This machine also has a manual spotting travel car which allows the operator to move the welding equipment down the length of a pipe assembly line to weld sections together or to weld pipe flanges to the assembly.
This particular 4 x 4 ft Ransome Column Boom Manipulator is equipped with a manual spotting travel car and manual mast rotation for a simple torch positioning solution at an affordable price.
