Lincoln Electric working with Fanuc for robot wire feeding

Aug 18, 2013

Lincoln electric produces wire feeders for Fanuc robots. Robotic wire feeders are built to fit onto joint three of the robot's six axis body. They are required for MIG, pulsed, flux cored, and metal cored welding.


Robot­ic weld­ing is a com­mon process in sev­er­al man­u­fac­tur­ing fields world­wide. Met­al prod­ucts are weld­ed by robots using weld­ing guns made by com­pa­nies like Lin­coln Elec­tric. These guns need robot wire feed­ers to com­plete their weld­ing tasks.

One of the largest robot­ic weld­ing com­pa­nies in the world, Fanuc, uses Lin­coln Elec­tric robot wire feed­ers on their ARC Mate series robots. The robot­ic wire feed­ers are built to fit onto joint three on the robot’s six axis body.

Wire feed­ers are need­ed for robots that per­form MIG, pulsed, flux cored and met­al cored weld­ing. One of Lin­coln Electric’s mod­els, the Auto­Drive wire feed­er, can be used for all these types of weld­ing. This 4‑roll robot­ic wire feed­er sys­tem can actu­al­ly be used for either hard automa­tion or robot­ic automa­tion systems.

The robot wire feed­ing from LE is easy to use because there are no extra tools need­ed for wire guid­ing, dri­ve rolling or arm pres­sure adjust­ments, accord­ing to Lin­coln Elec­tric. This wire feed­er mod­el has high­er accu­ra­cy than some oth­er wire feed­ers, along with being more durable because of the cast alu­minum system.

Over­all, LE pro­vides the Fanuc ARC Mate iC series robots with a nest­ing robot wire feed­er that opti­mizes any Fanuc weld­ing solu­tion by max­i­miz­ing the robot’s accel­er­a­tion and through­put, the site stated.

Robots​.com, a cer­ti­fied inte­gra­tor for sev­er­al dif­fer­ent robot­ics com­pa­nies across the Unit­ed States, has access to many dif­fer­ent robot wire feed­ing sys­tems and oth­er parts for your robot weld­ing pack­age. We part­ner with com­pa­nies like Fanuc and Lin­coln Elec­tric to make sure that our cus­tomers have access to every­thing they need for a com­plete, suc­cess­ful robot­ic solu­tion for their facility.
