Truck elliptical tank
Manipulator for automatic MIG welding of elliptical and polycentric tanks located on rotators integrated inside the CNC work-cycle.
On the boom have been installed a motorized carriage and a transversal motorized slide which are both assisted by an IG system to track the joint.
A metric wheel measures the peripheral speed and the 2 IG LAS probes move back and forth on the carriage in order to keep the torch on the top of the tank.
CNC picks the metric wheel signal up and automatically adjusts the rotator speed.
The plant is equipped with TSV 09 video system.
The manipulator base houses the control panel from which the operator, by means of the video system, can effectively and safely survey the whole process without any need of unstable platforms and/or step ladders.
On the base are also located the power source and the fumes aspirator.
As usually, the wire feeder is housed on the boom in order to have the shortest possible sheath.
On the 10” soft touch screen and via CNC it is possible to enter and recall lots of different programs at any time.
