Positioners

This category includes systems to which workpieces are affixed, which then offer a range of motion to either reduce operator fatigue or to precisely position the workpiece for the manufacturing process. Positioners can be capable of 360-degree rotation. Positioners are typically used in the welding of shafts, wheels, and pipes, the mounting of welding equipment, and rotating workpieces that have large offset loads. Other positioners are used to precisely and safely position drive trains and adjust their tension.
