PAV Positioning system

The PAV control box together with the servo slides forms a manual positioning system for the welding head.

The PAV system makes it easier to keep the welding head in optimal position and it also makes it easier for the operator to make a good job with less welding faults and costly repairs.
The operators ergonomic safety is in focus. The PAV allows the adjustment of the welding head to be done fully remotely. There is no need to climb or stretch to reach and operate the manual slides for adjustment of weld positions. The operator can all the time keep the focus on the welding process and do adjustments just by using the joystick.
By using the PAV with the controls mounted on the remote box the operator can be more flexible and move along a larger object and still have full control over the position of the welding head.

PAV is available in three versions:

  1. With control panel on the front
  2. With remote control (no control panel on the front)
  3. Without control panel and remote control
