ESAB Introduces New Robotic Welding System For Education And Training
October 21, 2013
Florence, SC – ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduces Swift Arc™ ML (Mobile Learning) System, a new fully-contained robotic welding system for education and training. Swift Arc ML is part of ESAB's Swift Arc series of pre-engineered robotic welding cells offered as complete ready-to-weld units. The Swift Arc ML robotic education cell is designed to demonstrate, develop and teach proper welding techniques, robot programming and welding skills. Its mobile platform facilitates on-site training and quickly transforms any space into a robotic welding training environment.
The Swift Arc ML robotic cell is comprised of ESAB Aristo® U5000i power source, KUKA KR6 900 robot and controller, touch screen robot pendant, expandable cell walls, and interlock safety system. Its robust construction features a steel tube frame with acrylic windows and heavy-duty casters for easy mobility.
ESAB's state-of-the-art Aristo welding power source and wire feeder offered as standard components are designed to minimize spatter and burn-through on thin materials. TruArc Voltage™ is another standard feature offered to provide truly accurate voltage information for critical welding.
Other features include harmonized motion between the robot and external axes, open architecture Windows HMI, easy teaching with the PC-based controller, constant wrist orientation function, electronic mastering for quick calibration, and much more.
Designed specifically for training environments, Swift Arc ML features an interlock safety system and operator control panel to enable instruction of programming and troubleshooting techniques required in real-life industrial robotic welding applications. An intuitive control pendant facilitates fast adaptation to the robot control.
The Swift Arc ML system comes equipped with an Aristo RT robotic torch. The torch's universal contact tips can be interchanged between water-cooled and gas-cooled torches.
This complete work cell is economically configured for education. It is delivered ready for use; simply hook up the input power, gas, and wire to begin welding.
