The ProLine Tip Dress Swing Arm gives integrators a durable, purpose-built tool that saves engineering time and reduces tool variation on the production floor. With a prefabricated tip dresser swing arm, integrators can add a consistent and customizable tool to the floor layout and reduce the amount of spare parts kept on hand.
The versatile swing-arm assembly may be mounted on a floor stand or to the side of the frame (side-mount configuration pictured at right) to fit a variety of weld cell layouts. Jacking bolts allow in-place fine tuning on three axes to ensure proper tip dresser alignment.
The swing arm — Also known as a swing-in unit, dump unit or pivot — can be customized with shop-standard pneumatic cylinders, proximity sensors and custom mounts for a variety of tip dresser manufacturers.
Adaptable — The standard Swing Arm is ready to use with Kyokutoh dressers (sold separately), but the ProLine Tip Dress Swing Arm may be adapted to work with tip dressers from other manufacturers. Contact us for more information.
Cylinder Options — The ProLine Swing Arm comes with Parker ISO pneumatic cylinder comes standard, with SMC and Festo cylinders optional to match plant specifications; safety rod locks are also available from each cylinder manufacturer.
Built to Last — The Painted steel tube and zinc-plated dresser mount resist corrosion, with industry-standard ACE Shock Absorbers to extend the life of the cylinder.
Rugged Construction — The substantial, rigid design and Misumi locating blocks help ensure accurate, repeatable tip dresser placement without excessive vibration at the end of the stroke or bending due to tip dresser weight.
Convertable — The ProLine Swing Arm is easy and affordable to interchange from a floor-mount unit to side-mount; the only difference is the orange body tube.
Cost Effective — The ProLine Swing Arm is cost-competitive vs. internal design and fabrication of swing-in units. With two standard designs (floor mount and side mount) and durable construction, fewer pieces are needed to fully support multiple systems with spare parts.
