Motoman Robots Arc Welding

Invert-mounted from a MotoSweep transport beam, a six-axis Motoman EA1900N robot welds large assembly and fabrication tables as well as subassemblies.Truss Fabrication Equipment

Highly flexible, extended-reach robot system meets or exceeds all project goals and objectives. Conservatively speaking, robot system payback was less than six months. Production capacity increased from 20-25 per month to 6-7 per day, enabling customer to bring out-sourced production of 40 units per month back in-house. Flexible robots produce high-quality, consistent welds, significantly reducing scrap and rework. Reliable robot system helped customer reduce lead time from 20-24 weeks to 16 weeks. Customer anticipates further lead time reduction to eight weeks.

Motoman Robotics Solution

Motoman Robotics provided two MotoSweep™ cells, each including:

Fixtures/Tooling Details

Customer provided their own fixtures. Each MotoSweep cell has two stationary holding fixture tables, one per side. The robot can process the same type of parts on both sides or different parts can be run on opposite sides of the same robot cell. Parts are fixtured very tightly and concisely to ensure welded parts are square and flat.
