ABB Robotics has come up with a comprehensive robotic welding package, called LeanArc1410.
The robotic welding system starts instantly and is a fully configured set up, which would suit welding operations ranging from small to medium. The package consists of an IRB 1410 Robot, IRC5 Compact controller, Tregaskiss 500 A air cooled welding torch and a Fronius TransSteel 3500 power supply. The users have additional option of choosing a power supply between Miller, Lincoln and ESAB.
The centrepiece of the welding package consists of the 6-axis ABB IRB 1410 robot, which is especially designed for arc welding. The robot can handle up to 5 kg of load and an additional 18 kg can be handled by the upper arm equipment. The package is compact in size and the arm can reach out to tight and distant points. The IRB has a rugged design, which operates smoothly with minimum noise and requires minimum maintenance. Programming the robot is done using the IRC5 Compact Controller. The programming language is RAPID, which comes with a host of arc welding programs, which even users with less experience can comprehend and operate. The controller can be deployed using a single-phase power output, external connectors and a built-in 16”, 16 I/O system. The welding machine comes with an accessory that protects it from the welding debris.
In addition to the above features, we have the Fronius TransSteel welding system and Tregaskiss 500 A air-cooled robotic torch. The welding system consists of a DeviceNet robotic interface, a wire feeder and an interconnecting hosepack. The robotic torch is designed for the endurance required to accommodate high-volume welding operations. The LeanArc is delivered as a complete kit, which can be assembled within a short span of three to four hours.
