How to replace or supplement manual welding

Less space, more output is probably high on the ‘wish list’ for any forward-thinking workshop and ArcWorld Robotic systems available from Yaskawa are ideal for replacing, or supplementing manual welding required in metal manufacturing work.

These fully integrated systems are self-contained, so it’s a bit like buying any machine tool, you choose the size of machine you need and a location to install it – and away you go.

ArcWorld HS Micro and RS Mini Robotic systems are easy to install and simple to operate, occupying a small footprint of either 2.3m2 for the Mini, or as little as 1.4m2 for the Micro. Both systems offer the potential for operators to double their output with up to half the preparation time – compared to manual welding.

The Micro system is supplied complete with robot and controller and its hinged door opening provides lots of options, even though it’s a very small, compact system. The Mini system has a revolving door and table, which again means maximum flexibility within a compact system.

The systems are designed to allow quick changes of jigs, helping to reduce the set-up time and improving production output compared to conventional manual welding practices.

Both systems incorporate a MOTOMAN-AR900 robot with YRC1000 controller, a start / stop button panel and fume extraction hood. They also feature a platform and casing with dark green polycarbonate glare shield protection and CE-marking.
