The Motoman EA1900TN overhead mounted robot setup for welding was purchased in May 2007.
Our robot cell is configured with 3 stations. Station 1 and Station 2 are setup for light to medium weight weldments with 6,000LB headstock and tailstock combination. Where as Station 3 is setup with a fixed machined base that accepts interchangeable fixtures depending on the product that is currently in production.
Our cell is a unique and customizable:
Coordinated motion where the boom will move and rotate during welding. This allows the weld joint orientation to the welding torch.
Customized fixturing and tables to accommodate even the most unique customer requirements.
Weld wire is run from 500LB barrels or 50LB spools depending on how large the production run.
Robot welding has brought unique dimensions to Custom Engineering and expanded our capabilities extensively.

Start to finish of this product was 1-1/2 hours by robot or 6 hours manually. This particular job used the full capabilities of one of our rotating stations. Wire was fed from a 500LB barrel.
