Valk Welding, Netherlands - IFR-Partner

Valk Welding delivers welding robot system to VDL Containersystemen

VDL Containersystemen has developed an Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) that can be used to unmanned sea container transport. The first AGVs were welded entirely manually, but VDL Containersystemen recently installed a welding robot system from Valk Welding. VDL will be programming some of the welding programs for the welding robot itself using Valk Welding's offline programming system.

Consistent use of automation ensures quality and productivity

Even when producing simple parts, the use of robots and automation pays off. Automation allows for short cycle times and highest process reliability which makes for low costs, which in turn leads to a quick return on investment, especially in mass production. This is impressively demonstrated by the German Busch-Jaeger company, which specializes in plastic parts for electrical installations.

Stäubli, France - IFR Partner

Robot instead of special purpose machine

If a company that specializes in manufacturing customized machinery goes for an alternative solution, then it will have a valid reason - in this case, the Stäubli RX170 hsm. This innovative milling robot working away within a cell supplied by plant manufacturer Riexinger ensures abundant flexibility in the complete machining of large plastic parts. The five-axis robot also scores in terms of maximum availability and short cycle times.
