Arc welding cell in the Lebenshilfe workshops
The workshops at Lebenshilfe Limburg gGmbH rely on technologically sophisticated equipment developed by KUKA Industries
For contract work, KUKA Industries designed a compact welding module based on a six-axis industrial robot with jointed-arm kinematics as well as an innovative portable programming tablet. The programmer now just works via a user interface, without mechanical and electrical operator control elements. “The new jointed-arm robot is more compact and agile than its predecessor. A welding source with external wire feed is flange-mounted on the robot wrist.
At its operating site in the Lebenshilfe workshops, the welding module is used for gas-shielded arc welding. The special feature of this process: the liquid metal at the welding point is protected against oxidation through the introduction of certain gases.
The requirements that these cells must meet are:
- the highest degree of flexibility
- in the smallest of installation spaces
- most straightforward programming procedure
- in conjunction with innovative apps
We wanted to keep up with technology. It is important to us as the user that the interfaces are suitable and that operation is comparable.
