Workpiece
positioners

Increasing productivity is key to ensuring a company’s sustainable competitiveness. Jucat workpiece positioners are designed to improve the cost-efficiency of production.

Our innovative workpiece positioners enable moving the workpiece to the optimal welding or assembly position swiftly and safely which improves ergonomics and occupational safety and multiplies production efficiency. This results in an increased capacity to meet the industry’s challenges and stand out from competitors.

Always optimal position

Efficiency increased by at least 30%

Programmable work cycles enable accelerated work stages and decreased lead times. There is no need to wait as the machine is always ready to work. Pieces are welded in the workpiece positioner which streamlines the work and reduces the need to remove and re-position the piece. This provides a significant boost to competitiveness in the tendering phase as increased productivity decreases the price – without compromising the sales margin. 

Improved safety and ergonomics

The workpiece positioner enables welding all seams in the flat position which is, according to studies, the most ergonomic welding position. As the welder can choose from various heights and angles, an optimal work position is always ensured regardless of the welder’s height. In addition, the positioner significantly reduces the load and strain on the employee’s body. This results in fewer aches, pains and sick leaves caused by poor ergonomics.

Remarkably improved quality

The workpiece positioner holds the object to be welded in the best possible position, and the programmable work cycle enables performing all welds from a certain angle and in the same order. The object can also be agilely turned to the position optimal to each work stage. This enables easily tightening the bolt, nut or hydraulic component to torque and always from the same angle, without compromising any quality factors.

Properties

Our workpiece positioners represent the highest-in-class technology which is not manufactured elsewhere. Their numerous smart functionalities ensure running the production efficiently, processing workpieces in a manner as straightforward as possible and reaching high-quality output time and again. The properties for moving workpieces and adjusting movement speed increase worker safety and prevent machine breakdowns by eliminating collisions. We also provide portable and mobile workpiece positioners!

  • The cylinders’ measurement rods or laser sensors ensure that both ends of the workpiece are moved simultaneously.
  • Proportional valves ensure controlled accelerations and lifts while preventing swings.
  • Frequency converters adjust speed, ensuring that rotational movements start and end smoothly. When the workpiece is already moving, the speed can be adjusted in stages.
  • Collision thresholds can be saved for various heights so that the workpiece and positioner can move freely without any risk of collision.
  • The option to program work cycles and save work stages enables completing the work stages more quickly while ensuring consistent quality.
  • The workpiece positioner always turns the object to the correct angle automatically.

JCP

Single-axle workpiece positioner

Grill-type positioner that rotates the workpiece around a single axle. The workpiece is attached to plates in the positioner’s opposite poles, after which both ends of the workpiece can be lifted, lowered and rotated simultaneously. The JCP positioner is used particularly for handling large, heavy and elongated pieces such as frames. There is no limit to the length of the workpiece. The positioner can be used for handling pieces of any length.

JCL

Double-axle workpiece positioner

The L-shaped positioner enables rotating the workpiece around two axles upward, downward and sideways up to 360 degrees. This allows placing the workpiece precisely to the desired position. The JCL workpiece positioner can be used for handling medium-size products with a maximum diameter of 3 metres.
