CNC welding, interpolated 

In today’s world of mass production, it is not possible to avoid robotic automation in welding processes.

To this end, bbs-robotic GmbH now offers robot welding systems that are even economical for small batch production and lot size 1.

Our new concept and our competent partner make this possible. Merkle welding technology offers everything needed for demanding welding tasks, from high-performance power sources to high-precision welding torches, wire feeders and network-based peripherals.

The robot cell is available in various versions. The standard version has 2 processing cabins. The turntables are optional. The high-speed doors have an integrated safety light barrier.

We presented probably the most difficult task for robot-guided welding processes at the exclusive in-house exhibition of Merkle GmbH in Meckenbeuren.

Visitors were fascinated to see how the V-seam was welded in the work envelope by a rotating arm using the inter-pulse welding process with mixed gas (82% argon / 18% carbon dioxide) and a welding wire G4 Si1 (01mm).

With our bbs-16-1-T-Z3 robot welding cell, we showed international experts how this task could be programmed externally in just a few minutes and made available on the system as a welding program within seconds.

This, the world’s first automated CNC welding robot with highly accurate trajectory planning of a processing machine will also amaze you.

Whether MIG/MAG and PulseARC, TIG (WIG) or plasma, our system solutions enable a leap in your productivity for basically any process.
