Weld manipulators like the 8 x 12 Aronson Sub Arc Manipulator are designed to speed up the welding process in a number of ways. The purpose of a welding manipulator is to hold the welding equipment over a work piece so that the operator does not have to hold it in their 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. This prevents operator fatigue 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 lowers the chance of weld defects which can be caused from improper starting and stopping. Another very common use for a welding manipulator is to use the variable speed boom as a welding axis to complete longitudinal welds. These long welds can be completed on the outside perimeter of a tank, vessel, or pipe, or you can reach inside those same work pieces to complete the internal welds which can prove to be more difficult.
This particular manipulator is equipped with two Lincoln Power Feed 10A sub arc controls and heads, two Pandjiris X and Y powered cross slides, Weld Engineering flux recovery system and a portable X-frame base for a complete welding package.
