Sumner offers a complete line of material handling, pipe fitting and welding tools. Best known for its pipe handling equipment, the company also manufacturers a comprehensive line of heavy-duty lifts, stands and material carts, as well as portable work benches and pipe and beam jacks.
Pipe fitting is a big part of many mechanical and welding projects. Use Sumner pipe fitting tools and the PFAST system to perform this task quickly and accurately. PFAST benches support loads of up to 600 pounds and come with all the accessories needed to fit flanges, reducers, caps and other components. Each PFAST also has a mounted touchscreen display that provides illustrated, step-by-step instructions for each assembly task. Using this system, workers can fit and tack up to 90 joints in a typical eight-hour shift.
Material handling tools have an important role in the shop and on the job site. Sumner material carts such as pipe dollies and rolling racks let workers move heavy pipes and other items quickly and safely. While pallet jacks and lifts can move many kinds of materials, Sumner tools and products are specifically designed to handle heavy and awkward items such as iron pipes, beams and rails. The company also offers lifts designed for stage and theater use. Many Sumner racks and carts are stackable, which makes them easy to store and transport.
Once materials are on site, hold them in place using Summer lifts, jacks and stands and secure them with clamps and hold downs to ensure proper assembly and worker safety. Use Sumner tools such as squares, welding gauges and levels to place parts accurately and produce flawless welds during final assembly.
Sumner designs tools, pipe fitting equipment and material handling products with the work site in mind. Using the proper tools for the job increases worker performance, produces superior results and enhances site safety.
