ABB FlexArc Robotic Welding Cells

Oct 27, 2013

FlexArc welding cells are built to global standards, saving the operator time and money; they help to ensure top-of-the-line welding operations. The FlexArc cells are modular to make them more adaptable to different production lines.


To reach max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, stan­dard­ized robot­ic arc weld­ing oper­a­tions are far more cost-effec­tive than cus­tom-designed weld­ing cells. FlexArc stan­dard­ized weld­ing cells are designed to deliv­er top-of-the-line weld­ing oper­a­tions and are built to a glob­al stan­dard to save the oper­a­tor time and money.

ABB FlexArc robot­ic weld­ing cells are com­plete robot sys­tems avail­able in sev­er­al flex­i­ble and ver­sa­tile stan­dard mod­u­lar pack­ages. They are deliv­ered ready to weld and pro­vide the man­u­fac­tur­er with a com­pet­i­tive advan­tage. Each of the FlexArc Cells is avail­able in a vir­tu­al com­put­er for­mat as an iden­ti­cal repli­ca of the real cell in Robot­Stu­dio soft­ware. They can be pro­grammed offline or on a per­son­al computer.

FlexArc cells are designed using a mod­u­lar sys­tem of stan­dard com­po­nents that can meet the require­ments of most appli­ca­tions. The basic options include either one or two robots equipped with Mul­ti­Move. Weld­ing equip­ment and a choice of ABB parts posi­tion­ers are includ­ed. It is pos­si­ble to weld com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent parts on either of the two posi­tion­er stations.

Fix­tures in the cell can be changed or mod­i­fied on one or both sta­tions if new parts are added or spec­i­fi­ca­tions change. The robot will main­tain max­i­mum flex­i­bil­i­ty as it can weld new or dif­fer­ent parts.

Ben­e­fits of the FlexArc sys­tem include reduced down­time, high­er qual­i­ty through process mon­i­tor­ing, short deliv­ery ties, and the two-sta­tion principle.

A vir­tu­al repli­ca of each FlexArc cell is avail­able on ABB’s web­site at no charge. Some FlexArc cell options include the 250K Mul­ti­Move Cell and the 500C Cell.
