This portable robotic work cell is designed to be used for multiple welds in multiple positions. Equipped with a twin wire welding system for heavy-deposition welding, the robot can also change tools for single-torch welding, grinding, deburring, and cleaning. The robot, wire drums, tool changer, and peripheral equipment are located on a movable platform connected to a rail system. This allows movement in both directions along the X and Y axes, increasing the robot’s reach.
Traditional engineering protocol is to bring parts to the welding cell, but these assemblies are so large the challenge is to bring the welding cells to a part, and then functionally move the cell to the next part.
Successful. The robot provides a level of precision, repeatability, and speed that cannot be achieved by manual processes alone. The cell has since been used for additional weldments.
