Valk Welding puts mega welding robot system for sale at S&S

At the upcoming trade fair Schweissen und Schneiden, the European welding robot integrator Valk Welding will present a large 12-axis welding robot system for the robotic welding of heavy and long products up to 20 tons and a workpiece length of up to 25 m. As a trade fair high-light, Valk Welding offers the welding robot system for sale as of today with the possibility of installing it at the buyer's premises shortly after the trade fair. Valk Welding thus offers a solution for companies with a short-term need for an automation solution for welding very large workpieces in very small series up to single pieces.

High-mix, low volume

"Of course, the large welding robot installation is also intended to show what we can do in terms of welding robotization for companies with high-mix, low volume production. In fact, the cell is equipped with the latest developments in welding seam tracking with Arc-Eye Adaptive that adjusts welding parameters in real time in case of seam deviations, automatic wire change, integrated fume extraction, full offline programming and CE protection," explains CCO Peter Pittomvils. "For all the hick-ups in the process, we have developed innovative solutions so that we can achieve a continuous process. Companies that make bulky parts in small numbers and large variation for offshore, heavy transport, heavy machine building, among others, have mostly already automated the welding production of large numbers, but want to be able to do the same for small numbers. And this is where we distinguish ourselves from traditional welding robot integrators".

Welding robot cell with 2 workstations

That Valk Welding serves both small and large companies, the robot integrator demonstrates on the basis of a compact FRAME-E welding robot cell. With 2 side-by-side workstations of 3100mm on a torsion-free frame, this concept is one of the most widely used systems, with low down-time for workpiece changes."

Offsite Teaching and ARP

At previous edition of Schweissen und Schneiden, visitors could already learn about Offsite Teaching, in which the welder manually programs workpieces using VR glasses. During the trade fair, Valk Welding will demonstrate the latest version Offsite Teaching powered by VRPS. And of course, the new ARP (Automatic Robot Programming) cannot be missed, whereby after clicking on the weld seams, the robot is automatically programmed including searching.

Welding consumables

Because welding consumables largely determine the continuity of the robotized welding process, Valk Welding will show the latest developments in the field of welding wire, wire transport, robotic torches, cable assemblies and custom solutions that Valk Welding can supply of these.
