As Miller embraces the latest technological advances in our manufacturing processes, we are delighted to share that we have recently upgraded our full suite of automated welding robots to further bolster our production capabilities.
This has seen Miller upgrade four of our existing models, as well as add another state-of-the-art machine to the robot suite. As such, we have significantly enhanced our welding accuracy, increased stock production and availability, whilst also improved the safety of staff. Delivering 100% weld consistencies, two of our robots also allow us to handle much larger attachments, boosting our larger sized bucket offering designed to deliver maximum performance in even the harshest environments.
Developed by industry leaders in welding and automation, CLOOS, we have two different model ranges which deliver the following:
Three Robots: QRC 410_2.0 Model
- Capabilities to weld attachments for machines up to 45 tonne;
- With seven robot axes, 100% synchronised, these operate at high speed, allowing for reduced cycle times;
- Multiple tasks can be carried out with the use of a changing tool and a maximum payload of 10kg at the wrist of the machines;
- Set up to deliver MIG welding with high precision and repeatability.
Two Robots: QRC 350 -E_2.0 Model
- Ability to weld attachments for machines up to 100T;
- Can produce buckets with an impressive width of up to 3.2m with the ability to hold up to 4.5T;
- Comprising 12 axis, including the robot arm, the machine is designed to allow for more manipulation of parts, which increases its versatility and ability to reach more difficult areas;
- The tandem and single torch of the machine operate in conjunction with each other with the tandem torch being used for long straight run welds whilst the single torch completes trickier, harder to reach radius parts. areas on a workpiece;
- Reduced weld times due to high deposition rate, as well as lowered heat input decreasing distortion of the workpiece.
With enhanced safety features, including mechanical barriers closing when the robots are in use and a trigger to prompt an emergency stop should the doors open, the robots are fully programmed and operated by a dedicated team at Miller. Consisting of almost 10% of the manufacturing workforce, the team has been fully upskilled in the next generation of welding automation equipment to further compliment their welding capabilities.Go To Next Story
