Pemamek Launches New 3-Axis Positioner with Larger-than-Ever Capacity

Industrial PRIME | November 25, 2016

Pemamek’s APS product family has just been expanded with the introduction of PEMA APS 70000, the first ever 3-axis heavy-duty positioner capable of handling a workpiece of up to 70 tonnes.

As a 3-axis solution, PEMA APS 70000 can handle the workpiece in rotating, tilting and lifting position. Thanks to this, the workpiece can be effortlessly and safely positioned to an ergonomic welding position.

According to Pemamek Product Manager Mr Jarmo Kallio, no one has ever built a 3-axis positioner with such impressive capacity before. The demand, however, is clearly out there, and that is also how APS 70000 first came into being.

“One of our customers had a project that required bigger loading capacity,” says Kallio. “To meet this demand, we decided to extend the range of our APS positioners to a 70-tonne model.”

At the time of writing, the first unit has already been successfully delivered. Meanwhile, Kallio and co. are confident that there will be plenty of further demand for the new Pemamek positioner from other clients in the heavy fabrication industry.

APS 70000 is ideal for the handling and welding of thick-walled pressure vessels and other heavy workpieces that require continuous multi-layer weld. Pemamek is marketing the new positioner as part of a comprehensive solution that also includes a column and boom as well as the PEMA WeldControl 100 user interface.
