Cincinnati Incorporated has introduced what it says is the industry’s first cobotic TIG welding cell, the Cobotic 100T welding cell.
The Cobotic 100T features a working range of 2400 mm x 1200 mm (approx. 4 in. x 8 in.) and is suitable for large or small production batches. The cell is compact enough to be readily repositioned and contains safety devices including continuous robot elbow monitoring.
“With a touchscreen control interface and intuitive programming buttons, processes are quick and simple,” says Ryan Lemmel, business unit leader, aftersales. “We’ve eliminated complicated off-line programming allowing the robot to be programmed using a tablet and buttons on the torch. The 100T autonomously detects sheet metal deformation without operator intervention. Automating the welding process maximizes limited resources and advances productivity by allowing shop floor personnel to be allocated away from welding operations.”
● Dual work zones allow operators to weld in one zone while safely unloading parts in the other.
● Use of UR5e collaborative robot with six axes and six rotating degrees of freedom (DoF) joints with +0.03mm (0.001 in.) precision.
● Additional seventh axis 1800 mm (5.9 in.), designed to add flexibility and maximize the reach of the cobot arm.
