6 ADVANTAGES OF AN ALM POSITIONER
Position for Productivity & Profits
Positioning large components for welding and assembly using cranes, chains, grippers and slings is always time consuming and hazardous. Rarely is the assembly in an optimum position for the most efficient use of manpower or equipment. Repeated repositioning can impair production schedules. Repeatability of positioning and alignment, from assembly to assembly, is virtually impossible.
The proper positioner will offer a number of advantages:
• Improved weld quality
• Simplified tool access
• Consistent repeatable assembly procedures
• Higher productivity and reduced consumables
• Proper ergonomics with reduced operator fatigue and injury risk
• Higher throughput and profits
