Machines like this one are designed to speed up the welding process in a number of ways. The purpose of a 6 x 4 ft Aronson Locust Weld Manipulator like this one, is to hold the welding equipment over a work piece. This is 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 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 longitudinal 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 much more difficult.
