Welding is possibly the most complex manufacturing process and may be the least understood. This has led to a shortage of educated employees in this field. For instance, the need for welders with experience all over the world is very high. Positioners help to make the welders you do have more productive. For manual welding, it creates a sturdy base for the welder to work at and places the weldment at the optimum angle for comfort and accessibility. Therefore, the welder can accomplish the task much more quickly. In addition, it saves space in the work area.
Positioners also provide quite a few benefits for a company with regard to automation. They offer an avenue that is very beneficial because automated welding can improve welding quality and increase the overall output. Automation ensures consistency so that every joint is properly and securely welded at the same rate. While there is an initial money investment that goes along with automated welding, in the long run, a company can save a lot of money and time by making the investment.
