K-BUG Follower Arm Kits & Rail

Two accessories are available for welding butt joints with your current KBUG-1200 or KBUG-3000

The Follower Arm Kits and Quick Adjust Guide Rail System expands the range of applications for the KBUG 1200 and KBUG 3500 to butt welds in addition to typical fillet weld applications. A conversion kit is available to convert a KBUG 3000 to a KBUG 3500.

The Quick Adjust Guide Rails feature on/ off magnets and quick connect ends that allow for fast set up and fine adjustment. Aligning and setting the rail is fast and easy with no stumbling with permanent magnets.

The Follower Arms will retrofit on existing KBUG machines; however, they are machine specific. The machined aluminum arms feature, durable stainless steel rollers with brass thrust bearings that ensure smooth operation to maximize life. Each arm has indexed positive set points for accurate in and out adjustments of the KBUG drive. We also used large glove friendly screws for a precise fit to the machine.


Improves and allows for tracking joints such as:

  • Butt welds
  • Fillet welds
  • Flat surfaces
  • Curved surfaces
