Process pipe cellThe PPC (Process Pipe Cell System) is a compact mobile pipe column and boom welding manipulator.
The Key Plant Process Pipe Cell allows for simplified torch positioning when parts vary in shape and size. The column includes 360° rotation, allowing it to rotate and position the welding head over multiple welding positioners or other fixtures.
The PPC is a self-contained, compact welding manipulator system that can be integrated as a turnkey solution with a variety of welding processes like GMAW and GTAW.
- Easy to set up and operate
- Reduces weld operator errors
- Greatly reduces welding time and labor costs
- Increase deposition rates, productivity and arc on time
- Improved weld aesthetics
- Improved operator comfort and reduced fatigue
- All positioning functions including welding head manipulator, oscillator, welding positioner & turning rolls are managed via a single control
- All welding functions are controlled via a remote interface
- Integrate multiple accessories: (Seam tracking, oscillation, AVC and more)
- Custom sizes can be engineered on request. *Subject to spec requirements
- Motorised In/Out boom travel option
- Pair with our material handling equipment and optimise productivity
- Various base options – fixed, caster wheels or track wheels for use with floor rail installations
- CE certified
Simplicity meets functionality – Optimise productivity with our cost-effective Mobile Manipulator Systems.
