The E-shaped robot system consists of 2 stations, as FEGA wants to process both main tasks as flexibly as possible. In the first welding station, augers of different lengths are welded. For this purpose, the counter bearing can be moved on a rail system along with the size of the product. During welding, 2 wires with different properties are used to apply the wear protection. The Arc-Eye camera ensures that the contour of the spindle and helix is also precisely tracked. Programming is facilitated via customer-specific macros. Since wear on a drill screw is never uniform, Valk Welding has optimised programming to meet customer requirements.
Attachments and accessories are welded in the second station. In a rotating-tilting device, the so-called drop centre, the component can be moved effortlessly to all desired positions. Sheet thicknesses are up to 50 mm, and multilayer welding can be set very easily via the software.
