Options and Features

Gripper Chuck

We manufacture an extensive range of clamps and chucks to be used with our welding positioners. Providing options of 2, 3 and 4 jaw chucks with independent or self-centering jaws.

Pendant & Controls

Our welding positioners come with a 5 function wired UKCA or UL standard pendant. Foot pedals, bespoke controls, touch displays, and PLC systems can be integrated for specials.

Adjustable Height

Whatever your project requirement, we can supply the ideal machine to suit your needs. As the manufacturer; we offer motorised, manual and fixed-height options.

DS14 Diameter Selector

Input the welding diameter of your workpiece. The DS14 automatically calculates the required RPM of the positioner table, and sets the speed demand in the inverter drive (VFD).

Precision Control

For workpieces that require the ultimate precision, we can provide rotational speed through a closed loop encoder feedback, for high accuracy speed control.


Create an automated solution and optimise your productivity by integrating your positioner with other Key Plant equipment, like column and boom manipulators.
