Speedy spot welding robot

22 August 2014

Kawasaki Robotics has introduced its latest spot welding robot range designed to meet market demand for faster welding speeds.

 

The B-Series has a small footprint of 0.5m wide and is suitable for densely populated robot cells, or stand-alone cells, where minimal space is available.


A slim, lightweight arm design and high-output motors, together with anti-vibration control technology, have helped reduce the time needed for short-pitch movements. Two payload variants,100 and 200kg, provide repeatability of ±0.2mm and linear speeds of 5m/s making the range suitable for high-volume spot welding requirements.

 

The cable has been integrated into the robot, preventing process snagging and eliminating cable positioning variables.


Using the latest Kawasaki E42 the B-Series robot has highly accurate trajectory control and faster programming execution. Supporting the robot's small footprint the E42 controller also offers a compact design. Additional axes control is available for applications requiring synchronised manipulation during the weld process.
