Collaboration to develop a simplified robotic cell for a variety of welding processes
Cleveland – In collaboration with FANUC Robotics America Corporation, Lincoln Electric will introduce a cost efficient robotic welding solution while continuing to enhance part production for manufacturing facilities with the company's Power WaveŽ R350 and ARC Mate 0iA robot.
"FANUC Robotics' simplified robot enables us to provide high-speed, quality welds while giving customers cost efficiency," said Justin Percio, business manager, welding automation systems, Lincoln Electric.
The ARC Mate 0iA robot is compact and lightweight and will help manufacturing facilities improve productivity, quality and safety while enjoying a simple, cost efficient solution. Lincoln Electric plans to use the robot in a new system, which will include its Power Wave R350 welding power source to deliver rapid arc response. The power source can handle metal inert gas (MIG), pulsed MIG, flux-cored, MIG direct current (DC), tungsten-electrode inert gas (TIG) and pulsed DC TIG welding processes. It has built-in wire feeder control for providing standard internal control for compatible wire feeders, allowing users to modify settings at the robot pendant.
"We have been working closely with FANUC Robotics to provide superior solutions for our customers since 1983," Percio said. "We are looking forward to releasing a new system that will integrate their new robot with our welding expertise."
