ESAB Introduces New Swift Arc Robotic Welding Systems

Press Release
Friday, April 05, 2013

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduces the new Swift Arc series of pre-engineered, robotic welding cells available in 3 models: Swift Arc AL (angle-load), Swift Arc FL (front-load), and Swift Arc SL (side-load) robot cells.
 

Each system is an economic configuration for a complete work cell, and is ideal for job shops introducing robotics to their applications. The complete robotic system is delivered ready-to-weld. Just hook up the input power, gas, and wire to start welding.


The state-of-the-art welding power source and wire feeder are offered as standard components, designed to minimize spatter and burn-through on thin materials. TruArc Voltage is another standard feature offered to provide truly accurate voltage information for critical welding. Other standard features include harmonized motion between the robot and external axes, open architecture Windows HMI, easy teaching with the PC-based controller, constant wrist orientation function, electronic mastering for quick calibration, and much more.


Each Swift Arc system comes with an ESAB Marathon Pac of bulk welding wire and Aristo RT robotic torch. The torches’ universal contact tips can be interchanged between water-cooled and gas-cooled torches.


The Swift Arc AL features a simple cell design with easy-open manual doors for minimum maintenance and two independent working locations for maximum productivity. Tooling can be changed on one side while welding takes place on the other side. At 36 ft. x 42 ft., the large capacity flat table side is approximately twice the size of a 60 in. rotating turntable. The cell features a KUKA KR-5 Arc Robot with PC-based KRC-2 controller with 11-lb payload and 55.5 in. reach. 

The Swift Arc FL robotic cell is for use with small to medium parts with very high production rates.  The cell’s servo table indexes parts to allow welded parts to be unloaded and new parts to be loaded during the welding process.  This continuous “arc on” time improves production by reducing stop and start times.


The Swift Arc SL robotic cell is designed for use with larger parts with very high production rates.  Dual trunions manipulate the parts, which allows welded parts to be unloaded and new parts to be loaded during the welding process.  This continuous “arc on” time improves production by reducing downtime.
