HAIGER/HANNOVER– Intelligent solutions for faster, more economical and more flexible welding production – at the EuroBLECH exhibition, CLOOS presented innovative technologies from entry to premium level and from manual welding machines to chained robot systems. From 25 to 28 October, visitors to the CLOOS exhibition stand in hall 26, stand H52, could experience the wide range of products for manual and automated welding. The focus of the exhibition stand was on the topics of connectivity and digitisation. "The increasing fusion of the physical and virtual worlds enables optimal control and continuous improvement of manual and automated welding production," said CLOOS Managing Director Stephan Pittner (CEO). “Therefore, we are constantly expanding our range of digital solutions.“
Digital solutions for the factory of the future With the C-Gate IoT platform, users can access information from their welding production in real time. All information is entered and processed centrally in an integrated information and communication tool. This allows users to monitor and control their production processes down to the smallest detail. It consists of several modules which users can activate depending on their individual digitalisation strategy – consistently from the manual welding power source to the fully automated production line.
Besides, the CLOOS RoboPlan software enables offline programming of automated robot welding systems. RoboPlan allows the generation of welding and travel paths as well as sensor routines at 3D models and their direct transfer into the robot controller. This increases the system utilisation, optimises the production process and makes welding more flexible.
Modular System for automated welding "We want to close automation gaps and increase the efficiency of the manufacturing processes," Pittner emphasised. "Therefore, we offer solutions for automated welding." The QIROX system includes the robot technology, positioners, safety technology, software, sensors and the interface to the process technology. The modular design allows scalable solutions which can perfectly match different applications and the individual production requirements.
The portfolio comprises simple, compact standard systems as well as complex, chained systems with automated workpiece identification and loading and unloading processes.
