Güdel Introduces ArcTrack, Preconfigured TMF for High-volume Robotic Welding
Gudel introduces ArcTrack, a preconfigured robot track motion module for arc welding applications that delivers the highest flexibility and reduces lead time by 40 percent.
GĂĽdel, the global manufacturer of linear motion modules, robot track motion units, gantry robots and components, introduces ArcTrack, a preconfigured robot track motion module for arc welding applications that delivers the highest flexibility and reduces lead time by 40 percent.
GĂĽdel has pre-engineered a TrackMotion Floor (TMF-2) configuration with an auxiliary shelf to carry welding equipment, large wire spools and torch cleaning and reaming devices with the robot. The shelf is pre-engineered to support over 750 kg with no compromise in performance. The ArcTrack is available for all leading arc welding robots, including Fanuc, ABB, Motoman and KUKA, and includes robot-specific gear boxes, motors and cables.
All GĂĽdel TrackMotion units are designed and engineered for harsh environments, including welding, painting, die cast, foundry, sealing, machining and grinding. GĂĽdelâ€™s unique cam follower and cartridge bearing design handle the worst environments, and enable 15-minute MTTR for bearing replacement. The ArcTrack is configured with guideway scrapers and a fully enclosed e-chain for the final layer of protection.
GĂĽdel TrackMotion units, including the ArcTrack, are available in lengths from 3â€“100 meters, and can be equipped with robot risers from 50â€“600 mm. Because ArcTrack is a standard engineered solution, lead times are reduced to 8â€“10 weeks from order.
See a demo of the ArcTrack at FABTECH, Chicago, Illinois, November 6â€“9, McCormick Place, Booth B35044.
