The 4×8 ft Ransome Manipulator Travel Car and track combination is equipped with two submerged arc welding heads and four power supplies. In addition, this machine has a flux recovery vacuum to recycle any remaining flux. This machine is 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. This is ideal when the equipment is too heavy to handle, as in this Sub-Arc welding application. This would also relieve the operator so that they do not have to hold a torch in their hands for extended periods. The part being welded is usually 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.  Another very common use for a welding manipulator is to use the variable speed boom as a welding axis to complete longitudinal welds. These linear welds can be completed on the outside perimeter of a tank, vessel, or pipe. You can reach inside those same work pieces to complete the internal welds which can prove to be much more difficult.
