Large Assembly Weld Cell | Navus Automation

Project Detail

This custom weld cell utilizes six robots in a work cell measuring 140’x40’x30’. Three robots on each side of a column and boom system function to weld and clean oddly-shaped parts which each weigh 30 tons. The four robots on either end of the cell weld the part, while the two center robots, equipped with wire brushes, provide inter-pass cleaning. An engineered trunnion and clamp system lifts, rotates, and lowers the 30-ton parts. The project introduced twin pulse welding technology to the customer’s facility and required qualification of the process.

the-aim

The Aim

Reduce production cycle time while improving weld quality, reducing rework and automating the material handling process.

the-outcome

The Outcome

Successful. Reduced the lifting, rotating, and lowering process that required 2 weeks to 4 hours. Reduced part manufacturing time from 17 weeks to 8 weeks.

“Navus provided a custom cell utilizing six robots to weld and clean oddly-shaped parts weighing up to 30 tons that reduced the part manufacturing time by 53%.”
