QUALITY & PRECISION: The swivel head is the simplest design in the industry providing quick and easy torch adjustment with the best weld current capacity. The Automated skip / fill allows the operator to easily program WELD ONLY or NO WELD sections of the bore. Reverse Rotation allows the operator to reverse the rotation direction, simplifying multi-pass welding.

VERSATILE: Free position allows the user to move the spindle freely for torch placement. The adjustable step feed enables flexibility of bead placement, eliminating weld voids. Step lock-out allows the user to face weld, greatly expanding the versatility of the welder, and the Boring Bar Interface Kit enables quick alignment and attachment of the BW2600 to CLIMAX Line Boring Systems.

SAFETY: The remote feed-control system allows operators to safely control the equipment from one centrally located pendant, ensuring precise and timely adjustments from the user.
