This Koike Aronson 1212 16×16 Manipulator is a mid-range chain lift manipulator that can be customized for specific applications, such as simple straight-line to circumferential welding. The Ram ends can be outfitted with small I.D. single or multiple arc welding heads for long seam and circumferential welding procedures. All manipulators come standard as a pedestal mount, and with a manual mast rotation, the option of powered rotation, self standing bases, and manual or powered travel cars. These manipulators 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.  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.
