Acieta offers the FastArc CW cobot, designed to perform simple welding tasks so that job shops and manufacturers can assign more challenging, complex jobs to skilled welders.
The system includes a FANUC CRX-10iA/L 6-axis robot mounted on a mobile platform to move quickly among production areas. It is compatible with Fronius, Lincoln Electric, and Miller welding units. According to the company, ROI with this standard, pre-engineered cobot is as little as six months, based on two shifts.
Intuitive software and a touchscreen interface help simplify setup and operation, and one person can operate several of the cobots simultaneously. People can work safely side-by-side loading and unloading parts while the cobot welds, so the system runs continually. If the low-speed arm bumps into a person or object, the cobot stops immediately. No safety fencing is needed.
