The open-frame weld head locates one side of the weld joint. During welding, a gas or water cooled torch and cable assembly rotates around the tube or pipe. By the application of the feed unit at a right angle, no significant costs are incurred due to wear-out of the gears. Open-frame weld heads are optionally supplied with angular gears for confined spaces or special applications. The head also provides optimal operator comfort and easy handling due to their construction and size.
Advantages of the Open-frame System:
Ease of handling
Option to add wire feed
No "size specific" collets required, each weld head will accomodate its full tube/pipe OD size range as indicated
90° tilting torch bracket
