Robotic system for large tanks structure welding

Description of the Robotic Welding System:

This robotic welding system has been specifically realized to weld different parts of Water tanks.


Description of the robotics cell

  • 2 robots, each one mounted on a column & boom
  • Each column & boom slides on a common linear track unit
  • Each robot slides along its own boom
  • Both robots working either in zone #1 or zone #2 (independent, secured)
  • Each working zone provides a 24,000 lbs capacity rotary positionner (servo controlled)

 

It is possible to adapt the size of this system.

Benefits of the system:

  • Increased productivity and efficiency
  • Consistant quality
  • No manual handling of the part (time consuming and dangerous)

How does it work

This welding system is very easy to use with its 3 step process:

  1. Operator loads the piece to weld
  2. Operator selects the job and starts the system
  3. Robot automatically weld
