Mig Welding Booms & Arms

Increase your welding productivity

The WELDPRO 360 Mig Welding Boom is part of an advanced welding system that offers Total Coverage of the welding area. 

WELDPRO 360 Mig Welding Booms and Arms were developed to reduce or eliminate non-arc time welding related activities, shop floor clutter, and safety issues for employees.  Welding output increases with productivity gains of up to 30% or more.  
 
Andersen Industries, Inc. manufactures the WELDPRO 360 in several models with various configurations for many different welding applications.
 

The Design

The design is built around the concept of placing all welding-related equipment on the boom structure, allowing for un-tethered rotation.  It incorporates a vertical supporting column with a large diameter, base-mounted bearing, (a key component) for smooth and easy rotation of the boom even with multiple 1000 pound drums or boxes of welding wire.
 
There are two boom arms, a primary boom arm, and a secondary arm.  A double-articulated joint arrangement connects the primary and secondary arms.  It is this double-articulated joint that allows the operator pendant to fold back toward the base, eliminating any welding dead zones common to other designs.  All welding equipment: the welding power supply, wire feeder, welder and wire feeder settings, inert gas, welding wire, weld boom controls, and fume extraction system are mounted on the boom column or arms.  Mounting all the equipment on the boom allows the MIG weld boom to rotate 360 degrees-that's right, it keeps on going-providing complete welding access and coverage anywhere within a 56 Foot [17 Meter] circular area.
 
There are No dead zones; No wasted time spent dragging the welder around; No tangled or cut cables; and No clutter on the shop floor.  Safety is improved and productivity soars!
 

Advanced System Controls

The key to any machine tool is the Operator Interface.  All WELDPRO 360 models place the operator controls at the end of the welding arm - within quick, easy reach of the welding operator.  As the weld boom is rotated to a new position, all controls move with it.  Where the operator goes, the controls go. Providing access within arms reach saves time and ensures weld procedures are followed resulting in increased productivity, weld consistency, and quality. 

Shops using welders with advanced processors and remote capable wire feeders eliminate the time the operator would spend walking back and forth to the welding power supply to make weld setting adjustments.  Make weld settings once for various materials, thicknesses and welding positions, lock the memory, and with the push of a button, the operator has the correct weld parameters and settings to do the job, and the best part, its repeatable each and every time.  This adds consistency and quality, regardless of who does the job, its a huge productivity enhancer.

The WELDPRO 360-LRW

Is a 18' Limited Rotation Wall Mount Arm Mig Welding Arm. The arms pivot assembly is mounted to an existing building wall, support column, or optional mobile base and column assembly. It has a maximum of 192° of semi-circular rotation.  This provides complete coverage within a 56' diameter semi-circular area when using a 15' Mig welding gun.

The secondary arm provides a full 360 degrees of circular rotation plus 5'-6" (1.67M) of vertical raising and lowering of the wire feeder using a wireless remote controlled air of hydraulic system.

 

The WeldPro 360-LRW-10ML

Is a 10' Limited Rotation Wall Mount Arm Mig Welding Arm. The arms pivot assembly is mounted to an existing building wall, support column, or optional mobile base and column assembly.  It has a maximum of 192° of semi-circular rotation.  This provides complete coverage within a 40' diameter semi-circular area when using a 15' Mig welding gun. 

The secondary arm manually raises and lowers the wire feeder up to 7’-8” (2.34M). 

 

The WELDPRO 360-UR

Is an Unlimited Rotation Boom providing 360 degrees of continuous bi-directional rotation, meaning you can go around and around in a circle without having to rewind or comeback. 
 
It is available in single or twin arm configurations.
 

The WELDPRO 360-LR

Is a Limited Rotation Boom it provides 180-220 degrees of non-continuous, bi-directional rotation.  Its rotation is not-continuous and is limited because it does not have the slip-ring or rotary union that comes standard with the 360-UR model.  
 
It is also available in single or twin arm configurations.
