Motoman Robots Arc Welding

Dual Motoman SK16 robots, each equipped with dual torches weld parts in staged fixturesOil Field Equipment

Robotic process welds two parts at a time, doubling productivity. Cycle time achieved based on part size: 28-74 seconds (12-42% faster than guaranteed cycle time estimate). Met or exceeded cycle time estimate based on 100% efficiency.

Fixtures/Tooling Details

Custom pneumatic fixturing for 13 part models was provided through Motoman's Tooling Partner Program. These flexible fixtures can be configured to accommodate more than 30 different parts. Motoman Robotics provided 32 large tooling templates for the top and bottom fixtures, and 72 smaller tooling plates for the backs, for a total of 104 templates. Motoman Robotics provided a Master Fixture Set-up Chart that operators reference regarding selection of the proper top, bottom and two back tooling templates, as well as clamp blocks, screw length, spacers, and other fixture details. Manual change over between the various part models requires 15 minutes to two hours, depending on the complexity of the changeover.
