- Design anywhere and build anywhere; common workcell and positioner designs sourced regionally.
Arc welding is the core of our company. Over the years we have developed more application-specific robots than any other company. Our welding process knowledge and path control has led the industry for the last 20 years.
With our comprehensive line of arc welding robots, integrated power sources, torches and peripherals, and our extensive family of fully integrated ArcWorld and FabWorld solutions, we provide reliable, low-risk building block solutions that deliver enhanced quality, productivity and ROI. Yaskawa Motoman's Automation Group or a Motoman Strategic Partner (MSP) can incorporate turnkey systems to suit production requirements of varied industries.
Seam finding is critical for a successful automated welding operation. Variation in parts and loosely fixtured parts need to be precisely located to ensure an optimal weld seam. We have several options available for seam finding, including Touch Sense, AccuFast Laser Sensor (non-contact) and laser or gray scale cameras (non-contact).Seam tracking is necessary when the robot must follow a complex path as it applies the weld. This allows the automated welding system to weld parts faster while maintaining consistent, high-quality welds.
Coordinated Motion and Adaptive Controls
We were the first robot company to develop coordinated motion of multiple robots from one controller. Coordinated motion enables multiple robots to work within the same space without the risk of interference of one robot with the other. With this feature, our robots can manipulate larger parts using two robots. Coordinated motion also extends to external servo axes in our positioners, simplifying complex welding operations. Multiple robot control provides more arc time and reduces integration costs.We continue to refine our software capabilities around coordinated motion maintaining our #1 position in the industry. Our systems are the easiest to program and deliver the best application flexibility. For example, by combining material handling robots with arc welding robots we can provide "jigless" processing, resulting in more flexibility and reduced tooling costs.
Complex Part Welding
We understand complex part welding, from exhaust systems and ATV systems to vehicle frames. We employ more welding professionals than any other robot company. We have the expertise to help you navigate a project on the front end through delivery and support your production needs over the years.
Heavy Deposition Welding
We offer a vast array of robotic welding solutions for manufacturers of large weldments. Our extensive line of welding robots, robot transporters, part positioners and welding options are well suited for production of mining, rail, agriculture and construction equipment. We provide customized, low-risk configurations that deliver enhanced quality, productivity and ROI.
Customizations and Modifications
Projects often require modifications to our standard product offering of robots, positioners, platforms and peripherals. Standard or modified positioners and robots can be combined in customized configurations to reduce costs and lead time. Customizations and modifications may include:
Work Holding and Positioners
We offer an extensive line of standard robotic positioners for work holding. Our patented MotoMount system makes installation easier, improves operation, reduces bearing stress and extends the life of the positioner. All of our positioners can be customized to meet the needs of your application.
We also offer transporters for light and heavy payload robots. MotoSweep is a rotational robotic transporter, and MotoRail is a linear robotic transporter.
Welding Power Sources & Peripherals
We provide high level digital interfaces for the widest range of power source brands including Fronius, Miller, Lincoln Electric and SKS. With our digital interface, the power source weld parameters can be monitored and adjusted directly from our programming pendant.
