Railway Industry with igm welding robots

When igm robots weld, precision comes into play: Our robot systems weld many parts for rail vehicles all over the world. Engines, frames, bogies, side walls, roofs, front walls for freight or passenger cars, locomotives, high-speed trains, suburban trains, subway and tram cars are products igm robots are working on.

Especially for the more and more frequently used aluminum construction igm can score with specially equipped robot systems: precise wire guidance by the "Torch Drive" feed motor in the hand axis, the self-developed iCAM laser camera for high-precision guiding of the welding torches along the seam, even with positional tolerances, and if required preheating devices, temperature sensors, pressing and cleaning devices.
Examples for endproducts: Locomotives (main frame, buffer, motor cases, bogie), passenger cars (sidewalls, floor panels, roofs, bogie),
