In the key area of robotized welding, the capacity was expanded further with another Valk Welding robot installation. This robotic installation constructed in a Ferris wheel concept was purchased for both single piece production and series production.
Ralf Diekmann says, “We decided on this design because the space required at the installation site was important. Also, due to the flexible adjustment of the table width, we were able to adopt our existing template construction. With Valk Welding’s off-line programming, we can create new products while the robot is welding. And we weld large products on the large Valk Welding installation anyway. With approximately 15 manual welders and 3 welding robots, the welding assemblies are manufactured in a 2-shift operation.
