The HELIX® C Series Clamp-on Weld Heads
The HELIX® C Series Clamp-on Weld Heads make welding small diameter pipes and tubes very easy. The ability to mount and unmount the weld head using a Vise-Grip® style latch allows for rapid setup and secure positioning on the part. These clamp-on heads are rugged, compact and engineered to perform consistent and repeatable welds.
Versatile Clamping Mechanism
