Controls Weld Shrinkage Distortion
The Angle-Rite® clamping system controls weld shrinkage distortion by compensating during the welding process. The intersected tube retains its straightness or original curvature after welding. It helps you save time and wasted materials.
The picture to the right shows the difference between tubes welded with and without the Angle-Rite clamping system. The tube to the right of the straight edge was welded without the Angle-Rite clamping system. The tube to left was welded with the Angle-Rite clamping system. Notice how straight it is. That is the weld compensation at work.
Secures Joint for Welding
The Angle-Rite clamping system acts as a "third hand" and holds tube connections in place allowing the welder to use both hands for welding, thereby eliminating the need for an extra person or a makeshift setup to hold joints for welding. This picture shows a boat railing in place waiting for the initial tig weld.
Simplifies Set Up & Reduces Time and Waste
The Angle-Rite clamping system increases efficiency and reduces labor hours. It also increases safety by allowing the welder to have both hands available to complete the job. This is especially useful while working on stairways, boat decks, and other elevated surfaces. Note: This clamping feature is not intended to set up a temporary or permanent safety railing but rather is only intended to maintain alignment while fabricating the railing.
