TRUMPF unveils TruLaser Weld 1000, an entry-level solution from TRUMPF which offers smaller companies the benefits of automated laser welding, boosting the productivity of their production processes to provide a real competitive edge. The new system is particularly suitable for job shops that weld products such as electrical cabinets, sheet metal boxes and covers.
The TruLaser Weld 1000 makes programming quick and easy. The information needed to run the TruLaser Weld 1000 can be obtained through e-learning. The system incorporates a robot whose operation is based on the concept of a collaborative robot, or cobot. However, its six-axis articulated arm enables it to move much faster and more precisely, resulting in higher-quality weld seams and less non-productive time.
Efficiency is a key advantage of the TruLaser Weld 1000. The work area is divided into two sections with a partition. While the robot welds a part on one side of the partition, the operator can load and unload on the other. Once the welding process is finished, the robot automatically switches to the other side along a linear axis and starts work on the next part. This design saves time and boosts productivity.
