Improve welder’s working conditions

UV protection: Rotoweld operators don’t need to get close to the arc, leaving them free from UV exposure, which is an important cause of skin injury and a long-term concern for welders.

One-touch welding control: requires minimal intervention and movement from the welder, contributing to sustainable operations.

Camera-based: prevents welder fatigue and increases productivity.

Ergonomic welder position: minimizes fatigue and prevents injuries.

Self-aligned fume extraction: ensures better vent positioning without any manipulation on the shop floor.
