3-Axis Low Profile Positioners

Manufactured exclusively by IRCO, the P3X low profile is a unique 3 axes welding positioner. The P3X low profile stance provides unsurpassed positioning accessibility for heavy and dense weldments—supporting heavy payloads at greater offsets than conventional weld positioners.  The P3X low profile 0-90 deg. rotation allows safer loading of parts in the flat position.  Fabricators of large equipment, use the P3X low profile for heavy, complex weldments.  The P3X is also used for heavy pipe spooling /pipe welding as it offers exceptional torque capacity and accessibility for set up.
