Background of the development
The automotive industry, which include major users of robots, have been working on the weight trimming of auto bodies and parts for developing and commercialize automobiles in pursuit of safety, economic efficiency, environmental friendliness, etc. To that end, they have not only been using high-tensile steel, aluminum, titanium, etc. as materials of bodies and parts but also modified vehicle structures, which has made the challenges in welding operation more advanced and difficult. In such situations, concerns at the point of production involving welding processes have been diversified to include unsatisfactory productivity, unstable welding quality, requirements for frequent adjustment in welding and troublesome maintenance of production equipment.
To address such diverse and complicated concerns of customers, Daihen has pursued to the maximum possible extent the quality required of production equipment used in welding processes and committed itself to the development of robots optimized for arc welding.
Regarding robots, new arc welding robot models "AII-B4L" and "AII-V6L" have been developed, which are equipped with a manipulator with enhanced motion performance and a new feature to decrease interruptions that occur during welding for improving productivity and welding performance.
1. Significant enhancement in the manipulator motion performance improving productivity and welding performance
2. Controller with higher reliability in global use environment
3. Enhanced functions leading to the improvement of productivity
4. Welding peripheral equipment achieving stable wire feeding performance
