News & Projects
Three Multi-Head Twin Station Special Purpose Projection Welders were designed for welding M5, M6 and M8 Weld Nuts and M6 & M8 Weld Bolts to pressings. The twin station concept allows simultaneous operator loading and machine welding. Efficiencies are further driven by an auto eject mechanism onto conveyor. Prospot Nut verification systems ensure the correct nut is welded in the correct orientation.
The Fleximan concept of the C-Frame Welder and the Weld Fixture both being mounted to servo-controlled linear axes allows the application of welds to any point within the X-Y fixture “window”. The latest Siemens fail-safe PLC control system, integrated servo drives connected on ProfiNET fieldbus gives a future proof Industry 4.0 capable control system. Specification can be AC or MFDC with a choice of fixed or rotating fixture heads.
Bringing required welding and joining processes into one location is an expertise at Prospot. Two ABB robot welding stations are complimented by a suite of British Federal single and twinhead Dengensha bowl fed pedestal welders. Alongside run SPR and Bolloff joining stations, and dedicated gluing benches. Customer benefits encompass operator efficiency, process consolidation and a flexible footprint to optimise precious manufacturing floor space. Complete concept, design, build and test at our Tamworth facility, with install undertaken by our experienced technical support team.
Improving efficiency and reducing cell run time is a key driver in all of our cells. Here we use Fanuc robots to extract a completed part post weld, whilst the operator loads an empty fixture. Our bespoke location fixturing, fitted with pneumatic clamps and location pins, and fully 3D shimmable with automated sequenced loading of components due to hidden welds.
Maximising the use of robots helps to bring the full welding process into a cell. Here 3 ABB robots are kitted out with a Ivostud Servo Controlled Short Cycle Stud Weld Gun with Auto Feed of the Weld Studs, a Serra Pneumatic AC Spot Welding gun controlled from a Serratron 100C weld timer, and a handling gripper – all operating around a two station rotary indexer.
