Hold, accurately locate, and securely clamp down standard flanges. Guide Blocks in the Flange Clamping Plate expand or contract symmetrically to accurately locate the flange for greater weld quality. The patented Flange Clamping Plate provides full welding clearance and allows easy removal of the finished weldment.
The fixture is strong and rigid, to withstand cumulative stresses resulting from welding, and holds the joined flange & pipe during cool down to prevent distortion, expansion, and contraction.
Load the flange & pipe, accurately position, and unload quickly for quality welds, maximum productivity, and repeatability.
