Cobot-Led Laser Welding PackageSeptember 16, 2022
In the Universal Robots booth at IMTS 2022, Cobot Systems displayed its cobot laser welding package, enabling users to more easily automate small-batch production without code programming. Centered by a Universal Robots cobot enabling six-axis movement, the package includes a touch display and intuitive user interface to ensure a low learning curve for laser welding set up and use, according to Cobot Systems officials. Included software enables welding parameters to be selected by the cobot.
The pre-engineered package includes a CDRH Class 1 workcell enclosure and access doors; UR10e cobot and laser-delivery utilities dress package; and work table with modular workholding fixtures and clamps. The package’s IPG Photonics LightWeld laser source reportedly provides consistent, high-quality results across a range of materials and thicknesses, and operates more quickly and simpler than gas-metal-arc and gas-tungsten-arc welding. The package features no-code programming of complex weld paths with optional 3D scanners integrated with stylus and iPad controller. A dual-station option is available for this package.
Cobot Systems provides cobot-powered automated workforce solutions for laser welding, CNC machine tending and assembly.
