ArcWorld Mini: less space, more production
Yaskawa will present for the first time in Spain the new ArcWorld Mini that is characterized, especially, by its compact size, its speed and its ease of use.
Yaskawa has expanded its ArcWorld range with two highly compact and flexible arc welding cells. The ArcWorld cell's formula for success is simple: the Motoman robot, the positioner, the controller and the power supply are grouped together on a single platform, which saves space and allows you to be immediately ready to use.
This allows the robot cell to move quickly and easily as needed. It is also very easy to install and operate. The two new and so far more compact members of the product family offer these advantages in a very small space: the ArcWorld RS Mini requires only 2.3 m² and the ArcWorld HS Micro 1.4 m².
Therefore, compact cells offer a flexible, space-saving and cost-effective option both for entering automation and complementing manual welding systems.
Yaskawa-Wenglor 3D vision system: innovative solution for search and monitoring of welding joints
This solution allows the search and monitoring of the welding joint, even with the most demanding applications and materials. Because the absolute positioning of the components is unnecessary, the solution is also particularly cost effective.
The Wenglor laser profilometer, together with Yaskawa's Motoeye software, allows adaptive welding applications, particularly cost-effective and high precision with robots. The search and monitoring of the meeting takes place in real time. With this system there is no need for absolute positioning of the components and repeatability accuracy. It allows the use of MIG / MAG, TIG and plasma welding technologies. Wenglor equipment can process a wide range of materials, including stainless steel and aluminum. Due to the interaction of subtasks, appropriate vision algorithms and competent technical support, optimal results are guaranteed, even for the most complex welding tasks. The all-in-one solution offers an extremely flexible platform comprising the Univision image processing module with an interface for the Yaskawa DX robot controller.
Polishing and sanding solution with the collaborative robot HC10
Yaskawa will present its collaborative robot HC10 with a new polishing application thanks to Ferrobotics ACF (Active Contact Flange) technology, which automates work with high demands on sensitivity and flexibility in two by three. This technology guarantees extremely short cycle times and high quality standards.
The application simulates an HC10 robot that moves with an ASTI AGV through the factory in order to go to various points to perform different tasks.
In this case, the robot has a claw for sanding and / or polishing with Ferrobotics ACF technology. Thanks to the AGV, an interchangeable tool could be used to carry out different functions in addition to polishing and / or sanding.
