Reconditioned Motoman Workcell for Welding Automobile Roofs


Project Summary:

A company desired to increase their cycle times and throughput with a Ferris wheel positioner, efficient welding solution that would create less downtime.  RobotWorx excels at integrating reconditioned robot systems for multi-welding automotive components that help to increase speeds, safety, and improve the overall weld quality. 

Application Goals:

  • Need a welding automation system that could perform consistent weld quality on multiple unique welds (22 B side/ 20 A side).
  • Minimize wasted time, cost, and materials. 
  • Improve worker health by eliminating direct contact with arc glare, smoke, fumes, etc.

RobotWorx Solution Details:

  1. Workcell: Certified reconditioned ArcWorld 6000 system. 
  2. Robot: A reconditioned Motoman UP6 XRC was perfect for the job; it provides a 6-axis, medium reach with 6kg payload capability.  
  3. Power Source: A Miller Auto Delta Weld 452  was selected as it provides 450 amp CV power source with air-cooled welding torch, safety holder, and wire feeder.  
  4. Positioner - The Ferris wheel type positioner with a pair of indexing head/tail stocks; this includes an arc-glare divider and a common base for robot/indexer.
  5. Safety Package - The safety package designed for the welding cell includes hard fencing with arc glare protection, one door interlock, and light curtain protection for operator safety.
  6. Operator Station - Operator controls: Cycle Start, E-Stop, Hold, etc. 

The company chose to purchase a welding cell from RobotWorx that would increase their welding application speed and functionality during production. RobotWorx was able to provide the company with a system that met all of the company's needs and expectations.
