Series 3 Lathe

For larger jobs our Interfaced Industrial Welding Lathes with distances between centres from 2 metres to 5 metres provide the perfect answer.

They utilise either the Standard Model O or the 153mm through bore Hollow Shaft Headstock. The tailstock slides easily and smoothly on recirculating ball bushing running on hardened and ground guides.

A free-running carriage carries the weld torch to any desired welding point between headstock and tailstock. This can be motorised to perform linear welds and also be fitted with Wire Feed and/or Arc Voltage Control for automatic welding.

The interface enables control to any MIG, TIG or Plasma power source thus providing fully automatic welding circumferential or linear welds.

Applications include aircraft components, fire extinguishers, water heater cylinders, submersible pump bodies and many others.
Optional roller guides are available to assist in loading and unloading the of parts.
