Red Ram Clamp

The Red Ram Clamp™ is a revolutionary internal line up clamp specially designed for the construction of large bore diameter pipelines. The hydraulic force of the clamp aligns and eliminates Hi-Lo in high strength steel pipes for a perfect setup that is required for todays automatic welding systems. All functions are precisly controllable with a wireless remote including the spacing of the welding gap. Damaged bevels due the apply of spacers belongs to the past.The battery pack is sufficient for twenty non-stop working hours, and can be backed up by a wired transformer which allows working without batteries. The expanders of the Red Ram Clamp are exchangeable for various lenghts so multiple pipe diameters are in the range of only one clamp. Furthermore the clamp can be expanded with copper shoe modules, it is equipped with an emergency break and it is prepared for a heating or cooling pack so the clamp is able to work in the roughest circumstances.Increase productivity and improves quality and safety!
