When it comes to weld cell issues, oftentimes it is the simple things that are affecting its performance. Being able to know the basics and go through the basics will usually solve the vast majority of your robotic torch performance problems.
This quick guide will show you the correct way to install a water/liquid cooled harness using the iCAT setting bar (part number 980.2153).
This quick guide will show you the correct way to install an air/gas cooled harness using the iCAT setting bar (part number 980.2153).
This quick guide will show you the correct way to install an iCAT harness to a Lincoln Wire Feed Unit to eliminate premature failing of the harness.
The front injector TMS-VI is nearly service-free.
However, it is important to carry out regular cleaning and inspection of the mechanical parts to make sure the equipment is fully functional and has a long life cycle. For correct setup procedure, see the manual provided with each unit.
Robotic welding torches with integrated wire brake are designed for use in robotic welding applications utilizing the weld wire to touch sense weldment parts (i.e. check for part placement and/or fit up).
So what does a robotic torch cost? You probably browse some of the welding equipment supplier websites and never see a price on those sites (ours included!), but then go to a welding distributor website or browse through their catalogs and get the List price from them. How do you know what you're paying for?
When it comes to robotic mig welding you often have to ask the question about whether you should go air-cooled or water-cooled. It's always good to have the right tool in the right place for both optimal performance and cost. Basically, looking at water-cooled versus air cooled, there are obvious cases where you would choose one over the other.
When you think of welding automation, cable assemblies are probably not the highest priority when evaluating options. But you may be overlooking a critical part of the torch as you go through all the different robot torch options out there. Without question, the quality of your cable assembly plays a key role in maximizing the efficiency of your automated welding processes.
