The automatic electrode jointer is the disruptive technology developed by Piccardi founders in the early 80’s to perform the joining operation directly on the furnace without any operator being close to the electrode. The over thirthy experience and the continuous research for improvement have guaranteed a reliability and performances.
The jointer can be ordered with the several optional features such as: Top rotating device (Item 1/r), Touch screen display for control and diagnostic, cable drums for connecting cables storage, radio remote control …

Now you can join the electrode automatically, safely end efficiently with the smelter arc furnace in normal operation, the electrodes energized.
