Precision Welding Lathes

For highly repeatable weld results with extremely consistent welding speed and minimal run out
Improve Weld Quality · Increase Weld Output · Lower Labor Costs

The Pro-Fusion Precision Welding Lathe is designed to allow unskilled personnel to consistently produce high quality welds on a wide range of circumferential parts. With over 20 years of welding experience, Pro-Fusion can assist in weld schedule development and tooling in order to provide a complete, turn-key automatic welding system.

Vertical Lathe
  • Rigid, machined frame construction provides a solid, non-flexing platform for Headstock, Tailstock, and Torch Tower
  • Air actuated torch stand with variable speed controls
  • Air actuated Tailstock with pressure and speed controls
  • Lathe Tilts 90° for vertical welding position
  • Custom designed welding speed control ensures extreme accuracy for precision part motion
  • Longer lathe beds available up to 72"

Pro-Fusion Lathes As Part of Complete Automated Welding Systems

A complete Pro-Fusion welding system offers computer control of critical welding parameters including programmable peak and background welding current, arc pulsation, upslope, downslope, pre and post purge gas control. Pro-Fusion TIG/Micro-TIG and Plasma/Micro-Plasma welding power sources are available as a completely integrated package with a Pro-Fusion lathe. An optional touch-retract system allows for precise tungsten to work gap settings for additional torch positioning.
