Column and Boom Manipulators

Key Plant design and manufacture an extensive range of column and boom welding manipulators from 6’x6′ to 50’x50′ (15m x 15m).

Buy, rent and lease column and boom welding manipulators.

Enhance your automated welding processes for inner, outer, circumferential and longitudinal welding applications with Key Plant column and boom welding manipulators. Key Plant column and boom manipulators are developed to upgrade your fabrication throughput, and augment the quality of your weld production. We supply machines for a range of manufacturing environments; from pipe fabrication shops to tanker assembly lines, Key Plant provide the best manipulator solution to suit your project requirements.

Key Plant have built a portfolio of global leading column and boom welding manipulators, available to buy, rent or lease. Our range consists of Mobile Pipe manipulators, Standard, Extra-Heavy and Telescopic models. But if your project demands are non-typical, our in-house capabilities and next-level engineering expertise enable us to develop special purpose welding manipulators for those more ‘complexed’ project needs.

Machines can be supplied full loaded with welding equipment (SAW, GTAW, GMAW and K-Tig) as a “turnkey” package or as the “steel work only”.

Increase deposition rates, productivity and arc-on time with Key Plant column and boom welding manipulators.

mobile pipe column and boom welding manipulator

Mobile Pipe

Column and boom manipulators.

Key Plant mobile pipe welding manipulators are the perfect automated welding solution for the pipe welding industry. Easy to set up and operate, the compact manipulators greatly reduce welding time and labor costs, whilst improving weld aesthetics. They also improve that all important operator comfort and reduce overall fatigue.

Standard column and boom welding manipulator

Standard Series

Column and boom manipulators.

Key Plant’s standard welding manipulator series ranges from 2m x 2m to 7m x 7m. A versatile and cost-effective solution, our standard series are a popular choice for medium and heavy duty fabrication projects. Contact us today for our Standard machine series information and specifications.

Extra heavy duty column and boom welding manipulator

Extra heavy duty

Column and boom manipulators.

For those really big welding projects, we introduce our extra heavy duty welding manipulators. Our EHD machines range from 7m x 7m to 15m x 15m. Did you know? Key Plant designed, manufactured and installed Europe’s largest column and boom, measuring a whopping 15m x 10m. Contact us today for our EHD machine information and specifications.

Telescopic column and boom welding manipulator

Telescopic

Column and boom manipulators.

The advantage of using a telescopic type column and boom is to save space at the opposite side of the column. When the telescopic boom retracts it fits inside the main boom arm, therefore it is not required to have the same amont of area infront of the column as behind the column. Perfect for those tight and narrow production lines.

Special Purpose Column and Boom Manipulators

Need something different?

Key Plant design, manufacture and install special purpose column and boom manipulators for a wide and diverse range of sectors. We’ve developed a number of ‘world first’ solutions for some of the worlds biggest companies. We designed, built and installed the first narrow gap welding tandem turnkey installation for the Lincoln Electric Powerwave.

Special purpose built column and boom welding manipulator
Tandem system for narrow gap

Choose your weld process

Machines can be supplied with SAW, GTAW, GMAW and K-TIG weld processes and integrated to various systems, such as narrow gap welding.

Column and boom welding manipulator welding head

Custom welding heads

We develop special purpose & bespoke welding heads to suit every customers requirement. Flux recovery systems, laser tracking, motorised slides and height sensors are just some of the features that can be incorporated to your system.

Operator chair and access

Take a closer look

If your application requires the operator to have direct access to the welding process. Operator chairs can be designed to fit on the column and boom, removing the need for external platforms, ladders, or lifting apparatus.

Bogie undercarriage options for traversing

Optimise your production line

We provide options of stationary and travelling bases, the travelling base can be manual or motorised for use with floor rails. Caster wheels are also available for our mobile pipe models; PWS and PPC.

PLC controller

Pendants and control systems

Our manipulators come with either a 7 function wired CE or UL standard pendant. We can also provide bespoke, wireless pendants, touch displays, and PLC control systems for special purpose project requirements.

Key Plant designed, manufactured and installed Europes largest column and boom welding manipulator

Big, bigger, biggest

In 2004, Key Plant designed, manufactured and installed Europe’s largest column and boom manipulator measuring 14.5m x 10m.
