Weld Oscillator

Arc Products’ Weld Oscillator System is a solution for automated MIG and submerged arc welding. The oscillator provides side-to-side motion of the weld gun to produce a wide programmed weave. They are used in a variety of mechanical devices including side beams, seamers, manipulators and custom motion devices. These rugged systems increase production quality, improve the working environment, and lower costs.

Weld Oscillator Slide

The 5” slide pairs with the control to provide physical side to side motion of the welding gun to produce the programmed weave.


Speed adjustment in two directions
Adjustable dwell times at both ends of travel
Adjustable width & center position
Automatic return to center at stop
Always starts in the same direction
Built-in high-frequency protection
Remote start/stop capability

*May be internally adjusted up to 5 in. (127 mm)
The oscillator comes complete with 10-ft. (3-m) cords for motor and control, and power. An adapter plate is required to attach the weld oscillator to the cross slide.
