TIP-TIG welding is a new advanced innovation of the common TIG welding.  This process uses new, patent-pending technology, that delivers the highest possible weld energy with the lowest possible weld heat, all while still being user-friendly.  While TIG welding is one of the most accurate robotic welding processes on the market today, there is always room for innovation.

When looking for that perfect finish, one must pay close attention to how the preparatory work is completed. This is an instrumental stage, key for providing optimum product results. Enter innovative robotic sanding solutions. Robotic sanding produces a product that is far superior to manual processing, in all respects.  It smooths down surfaces using a custom end of arm tooling in order to produce a clean, even, silky, and finished product.

If you are looking to improve your sanding, polishing, or finishing of wooden parts, look no further than ABB’s integrated Force Control software.  ABB always keeps the customer in mind; this is reflective in the quality in their robots and the company's incredible customer service.

Industrial robots are continually receiving upgrades and enhancements as technology is exponentially improving.  This is evident when taking a dive deep into FANUC’s sanding robots. These robots now combine force sensing and robotic vision to create tactile intelligence.   These two techniques have been introduced into the industry to increase the proven effectiveness of robots in manufacturing.  And that they have.

Automated spindling can produce a more consistent, precise, and overall high quality product (than manual work) for a variety of applications.  Spindling robots are excellent choices for applications such as material removal, deburring, milling, or precise routing.  They help to make work pieces clean and uniform for manufacturing processes.

Masters at material handling, the Motoman GP series is ready to conquer your application and increase your total productivity. The robots in this series (GP 7, GP 8, and GP 12) offer high speeds and amazing efficiency.  Additionally, all of the robots have a compact, slim design, a small footprint.These robots were designed with the customer in mind; they honor your time and also provide you with easy set-up, operation, and maintenance.

MotoLogix is a new, revolutionary software and hardware interface that can control DX200 Motoman robots via a Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC.  The integration of MotoLogix into the PLC offers the full advantages of the robot controller, but provides a more simplified process.  No longer will programming, operation, and maintenance of robots and machine control be carried out separately.

The ABB IRB 7600 is a work horse and ready to take on any heavy duty job between 150 - 500 kg (up to 630 kg with “wrist down”), depending on the model.  It excels at handling tough tasks as it has high available torque and inertia capability, a robust and rigid design, and powerful acceleration. This powerful acceleration results in shorter cycle times due to its motion control, unique to ABB.

Strength, Speed, Compact Design, Versatility:The Motoman UP6 can perform in nearly any context and offers the ability to switch between any automation project.  It provides amazing strength, speed, and versatility, as it conquers a variety of applications from welding, material removal, to material handling.  The overall productivity of your automation line will be increased as collision avoidance is provided, enabling two or three robots to work in conjunction with each other.

The Motoman UP  20-6 XRC is a high-speed robot that has 6-axes to help with dynamic acceleration. These speeds help to reduce your cycle times, ultimately saving your company money. Additionally, it is streamlined with a small footprint, saving your space on your production line! This compact design allows for close placement to the work piece holding fixture for improved part accessibility.
