Pendulum Oscillator and Freestanding Torch Support

The new stand-alone oscillator system from Steelmax adds capability and flexibility to your welding operations.  Used in conjunction with existing fixed automation systems, trackless or track-mounted welding carriages or on its own, this lightweight, compact weaver provides full control of oscillation speed and width as well as right and left dwell times. Both manual and automatic modes are available to accommodate a wide range of welding applications.  Manual mode when the oscillator is not part of a more complex system and automatic when it is integrated into a larger system.  Oscillation parameters are controlled by four easily accessible knobs in a simple control panel design.  A rugged, stand-alone base is also available when the oscillator is used as an independent system such as in welding pipe flanges.


  • Lightweight and compact design
  • Two working modes (manual and automatic)
  • Four adjustable parameters (oscillation width, oscillation speed, oscillation dwell time on ends)
  • Simple control panel (four knobs)
  • Can work as stand-alone device or be a part of more advanced welding system
  • Compatible with welding carriage Rail Runner 2
  • Powers supply (optional) to be chosen between 115 VAC or 230 VAC


  • Significant improvement of the welding process
  • Optimal solution for various welding applications particularly long linear welds
  • Uniform and high quality welding
  • Increased arc time – no starts and stops
  • Reduce wasted filler metal – eliminates over welding
  • Consistent heat input reduces distortion
  • Precise travel speed and torch angle reduces weld defects and costly rework
  • Improves work environment – reduces fatigue and repetitive stress – removes operator from heat and fumes
