ARCITEC Arc Welding System by ABB

Oct 23, 2013

ARCITEC is an arc welding system solution to increase the overall quality of your automated process. The arc welding robot controller is integrated with the weld power source; these communicate through a fast CAN/Devicenet bus. ARCITEC can work with a variety of welding applications such as short arc, spray arc, and short-pulsed arc.


ABBs ARCITEC is a sys­tem solu­tion for arc weld­ing where the robot con­troller (S4Cplus) is high­ly inte­grat­ed with the weld pow­er source. The con­troller and pow­er source com­mu­ni­cate through a fast CAN/​Devicenet bus. The pow­er source has a built-in data­base and cal­cu­la­tion tool for weld para­me­ter values.

All pro­gram­ming is com­plet­ed through the robot teach pen­dant. ARCITEC can per­form the fol­low­ing weld­ing process­es: short arc, spray arc, and short-pulsed arc.

ARCITEC II, the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of ful­ly inte­grat­ed pow­er sources, has full syn­er­gic func­tion­al­i­ty. It is designed for the robot­ic MIG/MAG weld­ing of mate­ri­als used in met­al fab­ri­ca­tion indus­tries. Dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion gives fast and accu­rate con­trol of the weld­ing process. 

ARCITEC II has more than 300 method/​material/​wire diameter/​shielding gas com­bi­na­tions devel­oped specif­i­cal­ly for robot­ic weld­ing. All weld­ing para­me­ters can be indi­vid­u­al­ly tuned by turn­ing off the syn­er­gic func­tion­al­i­ty for more demand­ing applications. 

The ARCITEC II sys­tem pow­er sources pro­vide supe­ri­or weld­ing prop­er­ties for dif­fer­ent mate­ri­als with min­i­mum spatter.
