Arc Welding Robot suits push-pull aluminum welding.
Press Release Summary:
February 15, 2008 - Featuring bus communication interface to control lift arc start and end, TAWERS-Aluminum MIG can detect when current is flowing and retracts to take pressure off wire, resulting in reliable arc ignition. It uses 3 motor system to ensure accurate wire feed, and features syncro-weaving function and servo feeder for real-time parameter adjustment from thick to thin materials. Product can also use high voltage touch sensing through aluminum oxide, which prevents wire bending.

Panasonic Presents TAWERS-Aluminum MIG, a High-Performance Welding Solution
Press release date: February 11, 2008
The bus communication interface standard to Panasonic TAWERS robots is used to control the robot's lift arc start and end. The robot then knows when current is flowing and retracts to take pressure off the wire- resulting in a more reliable arc ignition.
Panasonic also addressed the common challenge of locating joints for extrusion applications and for thin to thick welding applications. The syncro-weaving function and servo feeder provide real-time parameter adjustment from thick to thin materials - for penetration on the thick and no burn through on the thin. TAWERS-Aluminum MIG can also use high voltage touch sensing through aluminum oxide, which provides a fast response and prevents wire bending.
Panasonic made converting pre-existing Panasonic TAWERS robots to TAWERS-Aluminum MIG easy as well. Customers can add the AL-MIG unit and software - making the switch in minutes.
