A welding Rotator is a device that rotates round or tubular work pieces such as flanges and pipes through 360 degrees to allow a welder to stand in one position and constantly work on a level surface. This prevents worker fatigue and increases productivity since the welder does not need to constantly move around the pipe to complete the weld. This method of work piece presentation also tends to ensure consistently high quality welds since no overhead or vertical runs are involved.
Joining pipes or attaching pipe fittings such as flanges and valves is a problematic task from an execution perspective due to the 360-degree work plane. Without the use of a tool such as the welding positioner, the artisan may have to constantly move around and under the pipe to complete the joint, which is not conducive to good quality welding. In particular, this causes fatigue, is time consuming, and requires vertical and overhead welding runs with frequent interruptions for re-positioning.
