Goodhart Sons, Inc. Adds New Weld Manipulator

Goodhart Sons, Inc. a steel fabricator and installer based in Lancaster, PA., has acquired an additional Pandjiris Manipulator to assist in the manufacturing of tanks, pressure vessels and ductwork. This is the second manipulator they have added in the past 9 months.

This time they have decided to go bigger. The manipulator's basic size of 14' x 14' is mounted on a bolt-down base and has an 1' nominal arc height along with a 14' horizontal boom stroke at a variable speed of 3" to 116" per minute. This is electronically controlled with dynamic braking beginning 19-1/4" from the centerline of the column and 360 degree manual column rotation. The standard electricals are 230/460 volts, 3 phase, 60 cycle with 115 control and is wired to conform to National Electrical Code Standards.

The manipulator boom is complemented by a Lincoln NA-5 Sub Arc welder and Air Powered Flux Recovery System to deposit more weld metal at fast travel speeds. This welder easily adapts to a wide range of wire feed speeds and sizes.

"With the number of ASME tanks and vessels we have going through our shop, an additional manipulator was the logical choice for us," said Dave Kriner, Goodhart Sons, Inc.'s Quality Assurance manager.

Kriner also sees an advantage of having this manipulator when it comes to ductwork. "We have some duct that will be coming through our fabrication shop real soon and my hope is to put both of these Pandjiris booms to work on that."
