A robot named "Katrin"

The newest colleague at our customer Schachtbau Nordhausen (DE) was baptized "Katrin", the igm welding robot system of the type RTE 478-S, combined with 2 L manipulators RWM2-2000A to increase the productivity and quality of complex component production. Only small modules could be welded fully automatically so far, but now parts up to two meters length and up to two tons can be welded in the 10x10 meter robot cell. That is not the last step in Schachtbau-Nordhausen´s automation concept: solid plans for Industry 4.0 - ideas for a 35-meter robot portal for parts up to 12 meters length with a maximum weight of 15 tons are coming up, so we are looking forward to start the offer preparation!

igm robots weld dumper truck bodies at Bell Equipment Germany

Bell Equipment Germany was founded in 2000 as the third European branch of the South African construction equipment manufacturer Bell Equipment. The Bell dumper truck plant was completely rebuilt on almost 10 hectares of total area, with a production area of around 16,000 m², and it is designed for flexible production of all current vehicle sizes.

The components are dumpers of the articulated dumper trucks with a loading volume of 18 t to 46 t and in the future up to 60 t. The production takes place in two steps: First, the subassemblies (rear and end walls) are manufactured in the smaller igm welding robot cell, then - after manual tacking - the complete dumper is welded in the large igm welding robot station.
