Align Production Systems’ Heavy Duty Headstock & Tailstock Positioners deliver variable-speed rotation in either direction to optimize your fabrication or assembly operation. Our positioners are designed to improve worker ergonomics in your welding, torching, cutting, or cladding operations by positioning the workpiece into the ideal work position. Our heavy-duty Head & Tailstock Positioners are offered in 3 weight capacities ranging from 8,000 to 35,000lbs with options ranging from simple hand controls to robotic interfacing. We also offer custom designed headstock & tailstock solutions to fit your project specifications.
Our Headstock & Tailstock welding positioner can easily lift & rotate weldments weighing up to 35,000 lbs.
All Electric Power
Our positioners feature an electric slew bearing, eliminating hydraulic fluid mess & fire hazard.
Precision slewing bearings allow for backlash free rotational manipulation of the workpiece.
