Battery Powered Welding Carriage

Gecko Battery

Gecko Battery is a portable, battery-powered welder designed to produce consistent high-quality welds. Constant and repeatable travel speed enables weld bead geometry that is exact to the required specifications. It can also be plugged directly into power network using an optional power supply.

  • Magnet on/off lever permits easy set up and adjustment on work piece
  • Maintenance free 4-wheel drive with worm gear reduction
  • Heat resistant silicone wheels
  • Quick clamping torch holder mechanism for different types of MIG/MAG
    torches with diameters of 16-22 mm (5/8”-7/8”); optionally up to 35 mm
    (1-3/8”)
  • Precise torch adjustment with screw drive cross slide
  • Multifunctional LED display – presetting of travel speed, units, error codes information
  • Closed loop speed control system stabilizes travel speed to reduce weld defects and costly rework
  • Consistent heat input reduces distortion
  • Reduced wasted filler metal – eliminates over welding
  • Automatic arc on/off system initiates welding with travel, simultaneously
  • Capable of carrying and controlling two torches
  • Self-guiding roller arms eliminate the need for track
  • Multi-surface guiding with user-friendly adjustment of tractor position
  • Improves working environment – removes operator from heat and fumes

The newest improved guide arms family makes a proper welding tractor positioning even easier.

  • 7 different guide types are dedicated to various welding applications and positions
  • include a number of fixing grooves for your convenience
  • enable simpler, easier and more consistent adjustment of how guide arms stick out
  • secure proper tilting of the carriage into a direction of its movement
  • maintain a permanent contact with the workpiece
  • allow either interval or continuous guide arms adjustment

Continuous adjustment of a degree how much the guide arms stick out.

Each new guide arm has got a number of indented grooves only on one side. All types of guide arms are available in pairs of 2 pcs: right and left.

Interval adjustment of a degree how much the guide arms stick out

Gecko flexible track
