High-speed seam welding machine
KAT® Tracker Electronic Seam Tracking System
...high precision tracking system that maintain the torch in optimum operating position regardless of variations in the weld seam...providing improved quality and efficiency in a wide variety of welding operations.
The quality and efficiency achieved with today’s automated welding systems can be impaired by material warpage, misalignment, irregular edge fit-up, different material thickness and other conditions that cause variations in the weld seam.
Gullco KAT® Tracker restore optimum performance when these conditions are encountered. They continually sense the slightest variation across the weld seam and automatically correct the position of the weld torch.
The trackers are designed for incorporation and use with the Gullco KAT® travel carriage system but can readily be used with other travelling and rotating devices employed in automated welding operations.
The systems are effectively employed to cut costs and increase productivity in a wide range of applications such as tank, pressure vessel, pipe and structural component fabrication and deep groove welding operations.
