Are you as a sheet metal processor struggling with the lack of skilled welders and increasing pressure concerning quality? You are not alone in this. The demand for simple automation for time-intensive welding is enormous. This is why we have developed a system that even laser novices can operate immediately. A system that enables you to weld more quickly, save on post-processing and still grow the company despite a lack of skilled professionals.
Thanks to the ingeniously simple programming concept, users can program the industrial robot without any knowledge of the robot code. The robot is moved with a special operating unit directly on the optics. The weld seam’s waypoints as well as start and end points are set using the quick programming button. The program is created automatically.
On the welding optics, you switch between heat conduction and deep penetration welding. A pilot and line laser make it easier to set the intermediate layer. The optics’ height is set correctly for laser welding if the red dot of the pilot laser is on the red line of the line laser. The coaxial shielding gas nozzle with integrated crossjet protects the melt in every direction from oxygen input and the processing optics from welding steam and spatter. A linear attachment provides optimum protection of the weld seam from oxidation.
You will receive an extensive collection of predefined welding parameters with the machine. This makes programming even faster. You simply select the suitable data record for your welding path, depending on sheet thickness, procedure and material.
The KUKA robot KR 10 with its six axes moves with agility and extreme precision. During two-station operation, the robot shuttles along the linear axis between the right- and left-hand stations. During one-station operation, it utilizes the movement space for improved positioning of the welding optics.
