PAL Series

Powered elevating headstock and tailstock provides maximum efficiency/throughput and minimises safety concerns when lifting and rotating heavy work pieces.

The head and tailstock are elevated by means of a hardened stainless-steel screw with low friction re-circulating ball screw and nut, electrically synchronised between the headstock and tailstock.

Man-O-Matic

Miller ITW Centerpoint

Optional software for our headstock & tailstocks, and positioning equipment portfolio.

Man-O-Matic controller enables a sequence of pre-determined positions to be set. The operator selects the sequence for the component being welded and by initiating a forward or reverse button, foot switch or interfaced equipment such as a trigger pull from a semi-automatic wire feeder the weldment is then moved to the next pre-programed position.
