New robotic welding cell to boost productivity

Leading Australian welding equipment supplier, Kemppi Australia, has launched a new purpose-built Robotic Welding Cell to achieve greater speed, reliability and accuracy.

Kemppi Australia has combined its Kemparc 450 Pulse power source with an ABB 1520ID robot to illustrate its capability.

According to Kemppi Australia's Managing Director David Green, the pace and precision of a robotic welding package is exceptional.

“Robots weld with far greater speed and accuracy when compared to traditional manual welding methods, Mr Green said.

“These benefits can translate into huge productivity gains and improved quality management and control for firms.”

Apart from the dual benefits of increased productivity and quality control, robotic welding is on the rise globally due to two other key factors.

The cost of installing robotic systems has fallen considerably in relative terms, particularly over the last five years.

This has helped to make robotic welding a real and viable option for even small manufacturing operations.

There is also a general lack of highly skilled welding labour in many markets around the world, including Australia, which is helping to drive the demand for robotic welding.

Kemppi Australia's entry into the robotic welding market is no surprise.

Its parent company Kemppi Oy has long supplied robotic power sources to robotic manufacturers worldwide as well as their integrators and customers.

“We recognise that we have top performing robotic power sources with some unique features as well as an international track record in this area, Mr Green said. “This, together with the growing local demand for highly skilled welders that is becoming increasingly difficult to fill, has helped to crystallise our strategy for robotic welding in Australia.”

Kemppi offers a range of premium quality robotic power sources in its Kemparc, (both Synergic and Pulse options) and Tandem systems.

Designed to perform, the systems can be supplemented by “intelligent” software.

By optimising the welding arc, Kemppi’s Robotic Welding Cell helps to deliver increased productivity and better quality management.
