Stäubli Robotics will be looking to draw attendees to its FABTECH Booth #B15021 (North Hall) with live demos and insights on robot-based automation solutions for overcoming the industry’s most pressing challenges.
Stäubli Robotics designs solutions from the standpoint of real-world pain points – and metal fabrication shops and manufacturers have their share: labor shortages, higher material costs due to supply chain issues, and the need for higher output and shorter cycle times pose real obstacles. But these issues are solvable, and Stäubli Robotics says it can tip the scale toward profitability with robots that keep the workflow moving and consistently turn out quality products.
Meticulous 3D laser cutting
At FABTECH Stäubli Robotics will feature a laser cutting demo with its TX2-160L HDP (high dynamic precision) robot, a gamechanger in automotive, metal and other manufacturing plants tasked with laser cutting of complex parts. The TX2-160L HDP handles elaborate cutting paths with ease, displaying high dynamic performance and impressive path accuracy at various speeds.
The TX2-160L HDP’s precision is repeatable across all trajectories and orientations, accommodating different shapes, contours, thicknesses and other parameters. A versatile tool changer enables it to easily switch from cutting to inspection. This level of flexibility makes it an asset in mass production as well as high-mix, low-volume production. The results: higher output, less material waste, fewer costly errors, and shorter cycle times.
Programming made simple
There is no need for operators with programming expertise, thanks to the latest generation of easy programming software and user-friendly robotic teach pendant, the company says. FABTECH attendees will experience this for themselves at the training cell in Booth #B15021. The training presentation will use a pick-and-place operation with a TX2-60 robot, and visitors will have the opportunity to use the new SP2 plus pendant and learn how to build a basic application.
