Welding automation in manufacturing continues to expand due to introduction of improved and accurate robots at a lower cost. Also manufacturers have discovered placing more than one welding robot in an a production line compared to using one reduces overall cost because the part can be welded on all sides without moving the part using multi-axis positioning systems.
The LazerArc Multi-Axis Welding Positioner provides a superior accuracy, index time, and flexibility to meet the demands of modern automation systems. These complete 3, 4 or 5 Multi-Axis Welding Positioner machines are designed and engineered to provide superior performance in demanding industrial automation environments.
The Dual Trunnion position system utilizes our high capacity "zero backlash" TMF rotary turntable for the 180° exchange which creates accuracies of 9 arc seconds and repeatability of 2-3 arc seconds. The DR-TR Series utilizes our TR Series servo gear heads for the dual trunnion headstocks, which allows for a 2 second, 180-degree rotation on a load of up to 4000 lbs. per side.
As each system is built for our customer's needs, all dimensions can be adjusted to fit the application requirement. Motion Index Drives offers nine standard models with custom central guarding and custom frame width available.
