What is a Cobot Welder?

A cobot welder is a really valuable tool in the workshop when welding in your industrial production. Smaller welding companies that deal with low-volume, high mix manufacturing and are wanting to automate their operations should consider a cobot welder. They can help automate your welding processes with consistent quality and return on investment within 12 months.

Collaborative welding offers benefits to manufacturers such as:

  • Quick and easy to teach
  • Safe to be around
  • Easy to relocate
  • Increased capacity and boosted productivity
  • Cost savings and flexibility
  • Welds longer continuous seams

What is an ECO-ARC?

The most economical production robotic arc welding system, the ECO-ARC is a 2-station, 2-table configuration.

While the operator is unloading the finished weldment and reloading the raw components on table A, the robot is welding on table B. The economy (B) version features fencing that anchors to the floor and a sliding gate system at each station.

The standard version (shown) has everything, including the fence, mounted to a common, unitized base for easy repositioning and transport and features pneumatic pop-up doors at each station. The L (large) version features our long-reach robots and larger weld tables.

Ideal for: The ECO-ARC series is ideal for first-time customers of a production welding robot system. With a simple design, easy setup position and operation and high reliability, the system works best for welding small parts and uncomplex jobs.

Models include: ECO-ARC 200B, ECO-ARC 200, ECO-ARC 200LB and ECO-ARC 200L.

What is a PT-ARC and a SERVO-ARC?

These systems incorporate a two-position turntable that is either pneumatically-actuated (PT) or servo motor-actuated (SERVO).

They feature a single operator load/unload point for tending. Available with turntables in either 60” diameter or 72” diameter.

Ideal for: Parts that fit the ECO-ARC series will also fit the PT/SERVO-ARC series. These series have the added advantage of a single load/unload point and overhead clearance for the crane-loading of heavy parts.

Models include: PT-ARC 600, PT-ARC 600B, SERVO-ARC 600, SERVO-ARC 600B, SERVO-ARC 720 and SERVO-ARC 720B


What is an DT-ARC?

At the beginning of our part-positioning robotic welding cells, the DT-ARC is a 2-station cell featuring a set of headstock/tailstock positioners at each station.

These positioners are capable of spinning the parts around their long axis during welding, supporting the most optimal torch position and angle during welding.

Available in either the 180-degree version (shown) or 120-degree or 90-degree, based on what best meets your needs.

Ideal for: Weldments that require repositioning during the welding process in order to reach all joints with the robot torch and to weld them in the most optimum position are well-served by the DT-ARC series. Typical parts are long, slim requiring complete, circumferential welds or many welds accessing the joints through a picture-frame style of weld fixture.

Models include: DT-ARC 500

What is an ROTA-ARC?

ROTA-ARC cells feature an “H-frame” positioner that combines the indexing of a PT/SERVO cell and the headstock/tailstock positioning of the DT-ARC cell.

Operator tending is from a single station, and this cell is available in a variety of part payloads to best meet your application needs.

Ideal for: ROTA-ARC parts are those that could be produced on a DT-ARC, but require the added advantage of keeping the operator stationary with the load and unload being performed from a single point.

Models include: ROTA-ARC 250, ROTA-ARC 500 and ROTA-ARC 1000.


What is an TRI-ARC?

TRI-ARC cells feature a “Ferris wheel” positioner that mimics the functionality of a ROTA-ARC cell but indexes between the A and B stations by pivoting over/under, to reduce the floor space requirement in your shop.

Typically implemented with multiple robots (2-3) to share the welding load for reduced cycle times.

Ideal for: The TRI-ARC system is for speed junkies whose production demands their welding robot(s) mass-produce weldments at the fastest possible TAKT times. Any parts compatible with the DT-ARC or ROTA-ARC series would experience a production boost with the TRI-ARC welding robot cell.

Models include: TRI-ARC 1000

What is an LT-ARC?

LT-ARC is a catch-all name for any type of production robotic welding cell that has the robot mounted to a slider (robot transport unit, RTU), which operates as the 7th axis of the robot.

Supporting all manner of welding stations including tables, headstock-tailstock positioners, tilt-rotate positioners and sky-hook positioners, these are the “swiss army knife” of production robotic welding cells.

Ideal for: LT-ARC systems can replace “tent cities” of manual welding stations while offering the most flexibility of any other robot welding cells. For those fabricators who don’t know what they will be welding next year, let alone next month or next week, the LT-ARC provides the ability to bend to your future welding fabrication needs without breaking.
