High precision tracking systems 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 materail warpage, misalignment, irregular edge fit-up, different material thicknesses and other conditions that cause variations in the weld seam.
Gullco KAT Trackers restore optimum performance when these conditionsare 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.
Gullco Kat trackers are available in standard or heavy-duty models to meet virtually all requirements. These trackers provide precise right/left and vertical/horizontal tracking plus...
Electronic "End of plate detection" - puts the tracking system on "hold"... preventing the torch from driving into the plate and allowing welding to continue to the plate edge.
Electronic "Tack Detection" - interrupts the automatic tracking action when a tack-weld is encountered preventing the torch from rising prematurely... and returns the system to normal action when it reaches the end of the tack-weld.
