Lincoln Electric can provide a range of automation equipment including complete, integrated robotic systems. Our automation division offers flexible solutions that can help decrease manufacturing costs, increase quality, boost productivity, and improve the working environment. Some of the automation equipment available includes FANUC robots, custom cells, accessories, positioners, power sources, and more. This equipment is used for a range of applications including welding, pipe and tube cutting, and structural steel fabrication. We can supply any components you need or provide complete systems.
Here are some examples of the different types of robotic welding systems available:
- Fixed table systems are well suited to applications where part repositioning or rotation is not required. Our fixed tables have Auto-Mate pre-engineered robotic cells that are affordable entry-point for first time buyers of robotic welding systems.
- Turn tables offer a staging surface that can rotate or reposition a work piece to help increase throughput.
- A variety of positioning options are available for our robotic welding systems such as ferris wheel or headstock/tailstock types.
- Custom designed robotic systems are available to suit practically any application or welding process. They can incorporate capabilities including MIG, TIG, and spot welding as well as vision-based systems for palletizing, material handling, dispensing, and machine tending. While we offer everything needed to create a new custom robotic system, we can also integrate our solutions with re-deployed robots.
The robotic systems we provide offer a number of advantages. For instance, our universal process robots feature the most compact body and highest throughput available. In addition, they provide system flexibility, as they have the largest working envelope with all mounting positions. When used with a robotic vision system such as iRVision, our robotic equipment provides unparalleled performance and reliability.
Lincoln Electric has been in business for more than 120 years, and is an international leader in welding, cutting, and joining products. We continually invest in growth and innovation, and our goal is to provide solutions that contribute to the success of our customers. Lincoln Electric has provided thousands of robot installations. We also offer training, support, service, and preventative maintenance programs for robotic systems.
