Cradle Type Welding Positioners

Redrock Automation supply Cradles to suit a variety of loads ranging from 5t to 250t.

Our cradle type positioners have multiple T-Grooves to secure any over-sized work piece. Work plates are solid steel providing the strength required to withstand the toughest of weld processes. Our cradle type positioners (RTC Type) are suitable for large, heavy and wide workpieces. Operators of all skill levels will see an improvement to output, quality of weld and a significantly faster production rate.

The cradle design of our heavy-duty weld positioning equipment provides a dual support system allowing the automatic rotation, tilting and (depending on the load) lift and lower overly large work pieces.

  • All our cradles are provided with easy to use remote pendants
  • Torque can be optimised to operator requirements
  • Rotation speed can be altered with ease
  • Cradles with full 360o rotation
  • Weights from 5t to 250t can be supported
  • Our cradle type positioners are used for weld processes of pressure vessels, large components within the energy sector, wind turbines and for working on parts for nuclear non-cylindrical applications.


Our Cradles are available for sale or for rent. Redrock rentals can be arranged on a short-term or long-term basis. Short-term rentals are ideal for fast turnaround projects and can be supplied on an as needed basis. Our long-term rentals provide clients with the machinery required without the cost of ongoing maintenance. If the cradle is intended for use for ongoing work and will be used over 60% of the time, it may be worthwhile buying the equipment. We have new and used Cradle type positioners with each of them backed by our comprehensive 3-year warranty and dedicated after sales support.
