As the need for automation grows, smaller shops want solutions for their unique needs. Many have trouble justifying a robotic system developed just for one part or application. The Fab-Pak Cobot Cart from Lincoln Electric (Cleveland, OH) gives them a compact and adaptable robotic solution that works safely alongside and compliments their skilled welders.
The cart fits through a standard doorway and can run on lower voltage power, so it can be moved and operated virtually anywhere.
The Fanuc CR-7iA arc welding robot arm can be configured for standard MIG and twin-wire welding on steel and aluminum with touch-sense technology, weaving and seam-tracking, torch angle control, lead-through teach, aux-axis support, iRVision, and multipass welding. Its power and force-limiting sensors, speed and separation monitoring protect employees working near the cobot.
The cart comes with:
- Power Wave R450 power source that provides fast travel speeds, low spatter, superior gap bridging and excellent penetration.
- Best-in-class AutoDrive feeder system for up to 0.045-inch wire.
- Magnum PRO robotic torch for a consistent arc, available for a variety of wire sizes and bends. Air-cooled welding rated at 550A at 100% duty cycle.
- Heavy-duty caster system.
- Gas bottle mounting.
- Kickstand stabilizer.
Modular fixturing and fume extraction are optional.
