Our hire equipment is meticulously maintained and tested, manufactured to withstand the rigors of heavy-duty applications. Featuring adjustable functions and dependable performance, our headstocks and tailstocks deliver precise positioning and stability. We offer options to accommodate a variety of sizes and weights, ensuring that, regardless of your project’s scale or complexity, our expertise and hire solutions guarantee seamless and successful welding operations.

Headstock and Tailstock positioners play a pivotal role in providing essential support and stability throughout the assembly, handling, and welding of elongated workpieces. Employing a headstock and tailstock configuration guarantees the proper alignment and balance of your workpieces, effectively minimising the risk of distortion or deformation.

In the realm of smaller weldments, such as pipe elbows commonly encountered in pipeshops, the fixed-height HSC or HSVP headstocks stand out as a popular choice. These options deliver the requisite support and stability crucial for precise welding, ensuring exceptional quality and consistency in your welds.

Whether you’re engaged in manual welding tasks or leveraging automation, our headstocks can markedly enhance the overall quality and consistency of your welds. By diminishing the need for subsequent rework projects, you not only save time and resources but also reduce costs.

Opting for our headstock and tailstock positioner hire not only guarantees access to top-tier equipment but also provides the flexibility of short-term usage without any long-term commitments. Our expert team is prepared to assist you in selecting the ideal positioners for your specific welding, fabrication and assembly projects.
