Crocodile clamping and welding device

Quickly. Precisely. Reliable.
when assembling cylinders…

The HAEUSLER Crocodile can be classified as a mobile work centre which, when assembling cylinders, enters one cylinder at a time, positions it correctly with the help of individually adjustable rotating rollers and then welds it over its entire circumference. Due to the very simple positioning and clamping of the cylinders, time savings of up to 85% can be achieved compared to the manual process.
