Robot cells from Blumenbecker

Robot welding cells

Compact. Complete. Flexible.

standard welding cells:
from one-off to series production

Robot welding cells are gaining in popularity. No wonder: welding robots can be deployed in a very small space and quickly reconfigured as needed. This makes robot welding very attractive, even for smaller companies.

Blumenbecker has long been a leading technology provider for arc welding, spot welding and laser welding in the automotive industry. This accumulated experience informs the development of our welding cells for various needs. Our welding cells are highly modular and standardized and so can be quickly adapted to any task. They are excellent choices for welding-intensive businesses of any size since the robots deliver consistent quality at any time of day.

Blumenbecker standard welding cells are plug-and-play for unprecedented mobility and flexibility. Being rugged machines, they can be easily moved to their production station by a forklift or crane and then simply plugged in to the power and supply lines. Setup and teardown takes very little time and results in minimal production downtime. Do you want to reconfigure your machine to produce other components or versions? Not a problem. Our machines are easy to expand thanks to their modular design and uniform platform size.

We supply two lines of standard welding cells:

  • Arc2GO for arc welding
  • Weld2GO for laser welding

We can deliver a standard welding cell perfectly tailored to your needs.

THE COMMISSION

Bratislava-based automotive supplier Martinrea Slovakia Fluid Systems s.r.o. was seeking solutions for welding extremely thinwalled stainless steel tubes for fuel lines. Laser welding seemed to offer the best solution because it produces very high-quality welding joints even when the material is not particularly thick or strong, and it does not generate a lot of heat.

PROJECT SCOPE

The entire installation consisted of two laser welding booths, each dedicated to different tasks and equipped with laser welding heads from different manufacturers. The booths were specifically developed for welding thin metallic materials and were designed with automatic tracking.

Blumenbecker Arc2GO:
for one-off and series production

We supply Arc2GO standard welding cells in three basic configurations:

  • With a manual two-station turntable
  • With an electric two-station turntable
  • With a 3-axis KUKA Posiflex system

We can also ship the welding cells with a safety roller door if you wish. This reduces the overall footprint and is particularly suited for cells with electric turntables.

Blumenbecker's Arc2GO standard welding cells have a compact design that allows a small footprint, greater application versatility and exceptional user friendliness. Thanks to their extreme mobility – they can easily be moved by forklift and crane – they can be readily integrated into existing production environments, and if changes need to be made, can be quickly and flexibly placed wherever they offer the most benefit and efficiency in the production line.

We can also supply other cell-based robot applications for specific purposes such as gluing or handling. Ask us for details!

Blumenbecker Weld2GO:
Premium-quality laser welding

Laser welding stations are used for manifold manufacturing applications – from brazing roofs and tailgates in the automotive industry to welding door skins prior to pressing. However, they can also produce attractive welds that require no finishing in stainless steel, aluminium or copper.

Weld2GO is a complete, mobile, standardized system for robot laser welding and cladding.

  • Weld2GO Laser welding

    The Weld2GO laser welding cell with a turntable can be expanded to up to eight robot axes and makes the best possible use of the available space.

  • Weld2GO Laser cladding

    The Weld2GO laser welding cell is a standardized robot cell with a sliding top. It can be easily relocated with a forklift and expanded to up to eight robot axes.

    Laser cladding deposits virtually any type of material onto the surface of a workpiece. This process works especially well for finishing surfaces and is often used to repair large components such as dies, moulds or drive and turbine parts that are too expensive to simply replace.
