Customized Weld Cell with a Fanuc ArcMate 100iC/6L Robot


One of the best parts of working with a robotics integrator is the ability to customize your own welding cell, as opposed to buying a stock work cell or robot system from the manufacturer. When a customer invests in a custom welding work cell, they are able to have it made to the exact specifications of their product and production line. This custom welding cell with a Fanuc ARC Mate 100iC/6L robot from RobotWorx is no exception.

As you see in the video above, the FANUC Arc Mate 100iC/6L arc welding cell has a variety of customizations to make it perfectly suited for a parts welding customer. RobotWorx’ technicians and engineers built this workcell using a FANUC Arc Mate 100iC/6L robot with a FANUC R-30iA controller and a welding package consisting of a Lincoln PowerWave 350, an Abicor Binzel chiller, and a Lincoln AutoDrive 4R220. The positioner on this system is a Camco rotating table with two separate positioners affixed to each side that can tilt and rotate on their own. The safety package includes a large metal barrier separating side A and side B of the Camco table and a SICK area scanner to ensure that no one enters the work area while the robot welder is in operation.

This system is great for any parts manufacturer that wants to speed up their welding application. As opposed to a human welder who can load a part, weld a part, off load a part, and then start the process all over again, this workcell allows a worker to load parts on one side and then rotate the table to the robot for welding. This means that as one side is being loaded, another side is being welded, increasing the speed of the welding application, while also shielding workers from dangerous welding fumes and glare.
