3-Axis Positioners

Manufactured exclusively by IRCO, the P3X is a unique 3 axes welding positioner with optional 4th axis. Designed to support heavier payloads at greater offsets than conventional positioners, the P3X L shaped beam design provides unsurpassed positioning accessibility. Fabricators of large equipment, use the IRCO P3X 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.
