Robotic And Welding Positioners Manufacturers
Accurate, repeatable workpiece positioning boosts productivity, improves safety and leads to higher quality. In welding, painting, thermal spraying and other processes where orientation and position are key, Preston Eastin delivers the strength, precision and reliability that makes us a leader in robotic and welding positioners for manufacturers.
In welding, workpiece geometry and weld location dictate required torch angle and position. Turning the workpiece keeps the weld close to horizontal for faster welding and better welder ergonomics. A positioner also adds more axes to robotic welding systems, which improves access to hard-to-reach areas and reduces the number of setups needed.
Preston Eastin has built quality positioning equipment since 1972. Our expertise is in meeting the toughest workpiece positioning challenges. Robotic systems integrators, welding companies and manufacturers in many industries rely on our positioners to produce work of which they can be proud.
Solutions and Capabilities
Our extensive range of positioning equipment is engineered to meet the needs of manufacturers and robotic system integrators. When standard products don’t offer the load-carrying capacity or range of motion needed, we can design and manufacture custom solutions. This flexibility often makes us the first choice of robotic and welding positioners for manufacturers and fabricators.
Our robotic positioners range from linear robotic transport units to turntables and headstocks for vertical and horizontal rotation and 5-axis positioners. Welding positioners include 2-axis tilt/rotate devices, turntables, headstocks/tailstocks, turning rolls and manipulators.
Manufacturers implement automated welding systems to lower costs, improve quality and keep workers safe. Our consultative approach is key to the success of projects like these. Our expertise is in engineering affordable solutions. Listening to and working with customers like you helps maximize the ROI of your projects.
We understand the importance of equipment reliability to our customers, and we engineer to deliver it. That’s why we back our standard products with a three-year warranty. Engineered-to-order products are covered for one year from shipment date.
Applications and Industries
Preston Eastin positioning devices are used extensively in robotic welding automation. Industries using these systems include aerospace and aviation, automotive, defense, construction, energy, transportation, shipbuilding, material handling, and heavy equipment manufacturing.
Welding is a major application area for our positioners, but others include painting and coating, thermal spraying, machine tending, fabrication, and material handling. If the ability to move and orient the workpiece improves productivity, quality and safety, a Preston Eastin positioner can provide that capability.
