igm test series: Additive welding (WAAM - Wire-and-Arc-Additive-Manufacturing)

igm Robotersysteme AG successfully carried out welding tests for additive welding.

Example “screw conveyor” for production machines: usually the screw parts are poured and then milled, due to the large number of screw sizes, many different individual molds are required for production, for which a more cost-effective production variant has now been tested: additive welding of the screw parts

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!

Compact igm welding robot systems

The igm compact systems are optimized for arc welding applications in all mechanical aspects as well as the control hardware and software. In this combination of work piece and robot peripherals, the entire system is kept compact, since the robot changes workstations simply by pivoting the rotary arm or - in other configurations - the work station is performed by a rotary table.

Earthmoving with igm welding robots

Our installations for the manufacture of excavating machines consist of stand-alone machines or complete production lines with multiple welding cells and systems for automatic loading and unloading. Welding requirements are often demanding due to extreme material thickness, however, our robots are able to cope with position tolerances, seam displacements and welding distortions by means of laser camera systems which allow extremely accurate welding.

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.
