LinROB – the use of igm´s linear robot system


The company Moson Acél Kft. in Hungary is both an igm partner as a supplier of steel components for robot systems and a manufacturer of steel structures. In order to make the welding of the parts more efficient, igm's linear robot system has been used since October 2020: igm LinROB

LinROB is welding robot components

This complete 6-axis robot system LinROB welds in the factory of Moson Acél Kft. in Mosonmagyaróvár, Hungary, besides many other components also the track girders and columns for the igm slide systems. It is already the second igm robot in this company. Moson Acél Kft. is an established sub-supplier for many companies in the steel construction, mechanical engineering and earthmoving sectors.

Flexible system layout for a wide variety of components

The installed LinROB system is built on a floor track with a travel length of 10 m. The possible uses are considerably expanded by an L-manipulator with a 2 t load capacity, which can be combined on a rotary table with a 1-axis rotating device, station load 6 t. In this way, even the longest track girders for the 3-axis robot slide systems can be manufactured.

User benefits through the use of robots

The advantages of welding automation are for the user Moson Acél Kft. in increasing and securing manufacturing quality. The costs are reduced and productivity increased. Not to be neglected is the problem of finding suitable specialists for these demanding welding tasks, which is alleviated by the use of robots. In addition, the use of robots gives them an edge over the competition in terms of manufacturing competence and strengthens their market position.
