Pre-Engineered Robotic Welding Cell facilitates automation.

November 18, 2014

Auto-Mate™ accelerates and facilitates implementation of automated welding for manufacturers and job shops. While single-zone Auto-Mate 5 is suitable for welding medium-sized to larger parts, 2-zone Auto-Mate 10 accommodates processes that include smaller parts. Regarding latter, robot can weld on one side while operator handles parts on other. Both cells enable MIG and flux-cored welding processes performed by Fanuc® Arc Mate® 0iB robot driven by Power Wave® R350 power source. Read More
