Since spring 2016 Thoclatec has been using two new QIROX QR-CC-4.1 compact cells from CLOOS to weld small components. The robot cells have a 2-station workpiece positioner each with vertical change and vertical rotation. Whilst the robot welds at one station, the other station can be loaded again. This accelerates the entire process enormously. All robot and positioner axes are fully synchronised. With a clamping length of up to 1,200 mm and a maximum load of 250 kg per side a wide range of components can be processed in both systems. In addition to a faster process, the robots now achieve exactly reproducible welding results, which was previously not possible with manual welding. Furthermore, the compact cells are characterised by maximum production flexibility.
