Welding Column and Boom – Fixed Base

Welding Column & Boom is also called as Welding Head Manipulator. The welding head is mounted at one end of the Boom.
The wire spool can be mounted at the front or at the rear end of the Boom. In Extra Light Duty and Light Duty Models (i.e. up to 3 meter X 3 meter), the vertical movement is through Lead Screw. And for Medium & Heavy Duty Boom, the vertical movement is through Rack & Pinion with counter weight arrangement.
The Counter weight and Boom assembly is firmly held with metallic wire rope. Provision of anti-fall security is a standard feature in all models including Lead Screw driven ones. The Horizontal Boom drive movement is through rack and pinion for all models of Column & Boom.
