1) As you can observe from the above big picture, Welding Rotator is an essential equipment for performing circumferential welding on cylinder workpieces, such as pipe, tube, etc. So, it can be named as Pipe Rotator, also;
a) From as light as 2 Ton, to as heavy as 2000 Ton loading capacity for its welding roller bed;
b) From as small as 250mm diameter, to as huge as 10,000mm diameter fitting for its welding turning roll,
There is always a suitable model of Welding Rotator for customer to select from;
3) Arising from its way of working, besides “Welding Rotator”, there are many synonyms with this welding equipment, which are also popular in industry: Welding Roller Bed, Welding Turning Roll, Welding Turning Roller, Pipe Rotator, Welding Rolling Bed, etc.
1. As an equipment with common names of Welding Turning Roll, Welding Turning Roller, Welding Roller Bed, Welding Rolling Bed… You can imagine how important is the welding turning roll (Or, turning roller) for performance of Welding Rotator;
2. The proper design and manufacture of welding turning roll determines performance level of Welding Pipe Rotator in large degree. So, what are critical factors affecting performance of welding turning roller? It is material, workmanship and size;
a) Polyurethane for light duty and medium duty Welding Rotator, which covers the range of 2ton to 160ton loading capacity of welding roller bed;
b) Fully metallic steel for heavy duty Welding Pipe Rotator, which starts from loading tonnage of 160Ton Welding Roller Bed;
As you can observe from the above pictures, there are varied appearance and compositions of welding turning roller in Wuxi JACK Welding Rotator:
a) The hard polyurethane white color welding turning roller for light duty welding roller bed;
b) The combined welding turning roll of medium hardness polyurethane in the middle, and strong metallic steel at lateral sides, so that both sufficient friction force and rigidity are available in welding turning roller of medium duty welding rolling bed;
c) The fully metallic forged steel welding turning roll in heavy duty Welding Pipe Rotator, so that heavy weight cylindrical parts can be supported reliably on welding roller bed;
a) This includes both diameter and lateral width of welding turning roll in welding roller bed. As we know, the larger the size of welding turning roll, the higher its manufacturing cost, and hence the whole set of Welding Rotator;
b) As you can check technical specifications from every product of Welding Rotator, Wuxi JACK never reduce cost to exploit improper profit by losing quality of our product, including welding roller bed. We discuss on welding turning roll of Welding Pipe Rotator in product “HGK Standard Welding Roller Bed Stationary Adjustable Welding Rotator by Leadscrew”.
1. Welding Rotator has very widespread use in the field of industrial manufacture. As we mentioned at the beginning of this product page, all sizes of metal barrels need Welding Roller Bed to make its circumferential welding;
The three basic and indispensable welding equipment are Welding Rotator, Welding Positioner, and Welding Manipulator. Which, not only sometimes work individually, but also work together, to form up a more sophisticated Welding Center, including SAW Welding Center for making heavy duty tanks, and GMAW Welding Center for making light duty pipes and tubes;
1) These include Edge Milling Machine, Plate Butt Joint Welding Machine at its preceding working stations, to make welding groove and then weld large piece of steel plate, for the later on fabrication of large tanks on Welding Pipe Rotator;
2) Beam End Face Milling Machine at its subsequent working stations. This is for end facing finished pipes delivered from Welding Pipe Rotator;
3) Automatic Roller Strap Cladding Machine, or Lamp Post Gantry Welding Machine, or Custom Made Circumferential Welding Machine as its partner equipment, etc. This is for working together to deliver special design and shape pipe flange and or pipe assemblies with Welding Pipe Rotator.
