The rotation / tilting device of the RP2 series is used to manipulate the workpieces in two independent axes of rotation. In this version with a load capacity of 25 t, the turning center height is 2,300 mm. This enables a fixture to be accommodated for cylindrical workpieces with an inner diameter of 1,000 mm to 4,400 mm and tilting them from 0 to 90 °. The centering is done on the inside with 8 bolts, the fixation on the outside manually.
The drive is axis-controlled by 2 AC servo motors with special gears and built-in digital position sensors. The rotating device is designed for use as an external robot axis. The workpiece movement is fully integrated into the robot control and thus enables synchronous workpiece movement during the welding process.
Particular attention was paid to operator safety. In order to clamp the workpiece in a horizontal faceplate position, you have to climb onto a platform with a height of 3.5 m. Radar monitoring of the platform ensures that the system does not move as long as there is a person in the danger area.
