Pipe Tilting Rotators

A pipe tilting rotator is used by welders to easily clamp, turn and tilt pipes and other round profiles. This solution is mainly used in pipeline construction (prefabrication and assembly on site), in shipyards and in heating construction. We supply various new and used pipe tilting rotators from 500 kg - 2 t capacity. The pipe tilting rotator is equipped with a fast, precise centring and clampin ...


Most of our machines are supplied with a double foot pedal (start-stop / left-right) and a remote control (by cable). Optionally we also offer a foot pedal for adjustable speed, a radio remote control or a programmable control for welding positioners. Do you have questions regarding the DUMETA® controls, welding manipulators or automation machines? Are you interested in our controls and ...

Thread Tapping Machines

Electric and pneumatic thread taps to cut M3 up to M52 threads DUMETA® tapping machines offer an enormous reduction in your workload. The special flexible arms always allow an ideal cutting angle. It is not necessary to move the workpiece. Just place the thread tap onto the drill hole and cut a thread in the perfect angle. The tapping machines bring along fast and effective working proce ...

Column & Boom Manipulators

Buy a column and boom manipulator to further automate your production. Various controls and welding equipment can be attached and both a gear and chain drive are available to meet your needs. We supply various new and used column and booms with a stroke of 1.5-10 m. The ergonomic design of the DUMETA® welding column and booms ensure user safety, excellent welding results and maximum productiv ...

Clamping Tools

Chucks are used to clamp a workpiece or another object on a welding positioner and process it more easily. In particular, cylindrical workpieces or special components. You can clamp your workpiece optimally with the various clamping devices from DUMETA®. Our high-quality clamping means are available in different designs, tolerance ranges and with different adapters. The clamping devices are m ...

Welding and assembly is your speciality? Then you've come to the right place. 


We know the challenges of handling large, bulky workpieces in the production process and how much time it can take to get a component into the perfect welding position.

It is essential for a welder that all sides of a workpiece are easily accessible and visible and that he can weld flexibly in a relaxed working posture. This is the only way he can draw an optimal and clean weld seam, improve the welding sequence and significantly reduce welding distortion.

In most cases, workpieces have to be repositioned several times with the hall crane. Precious working time is lost and the risk of accidents increases. However, manufacturing efficiently can be much easier.

With a welding positioner or a welding rotator, as well as other practical machines from DUMETA, you can use this time for your actual task and at the same time protect your or the health of your employees. Automating workpiece handling will give you a clear advantage. 

For example, your workpiece can be safely tilted and rotated and brought to the correct working height, after it has been clamped on a manipulator. Or it can be rotated on a welding rotator and welded by a column & boom manipulator. You can decide which production steps are to be carried out automatically. DUMETA has developed a control system that is compatible with all brands and can automatically control both rotating and tilting movements.
