MARATHON has introduced the Z-Weld dual fixed-table robotic welding cell for manufacturers looking to enhance productivity on small- to medium-sized welded parts.
Shipped assembled and ready for immediate installation and production, the Z-Weld is particularly suited as an alternative to semi-automatic welding. Robotic welding can be three times more productive than a manual welder.
Marathon's Z-Weld is adaptable to all models of robots and welding power supplies and can be pre-programmed to meet specific material and application needs. The cell's 85 by 105-inch footprint minimises floor space usage, and its forklift compatible base allows portability for flexible manufacturing layouts.
Designed to provide versatile automation, Marathon's robotic cell can be used to weld various materials, including aluminum, steel, and stainless. Features include customer specific power supply and robot; two 30 x 40 inch tables mounted on a common machine base; manual or automatic doors at load and unload stations; full perimeter guarding with maintenance access door; air- or water-cooled torch assembly; Watchdawg for welding; torch reamer, exhaust hood, side access doors.
Designed to meet today's safety standards the Z-Weld provides ergonomic placement of operator panels and controls. The cell is delivered with a complete metal surround flash and safety barrier, and requires just power, air, and welding consumables to begin working.
Marathon is part of the Orbitform Group, represented in Australia by Hawker Richardson , and specialises in design, engineering, process development, and manufacture of a wide range of resistance and robotic welding machines and workcells. Marathon also offers comprehensive plant management and data acquisition devices and software.
Production cells range from single torch arc to fully automated multi-robot systems with positioners and custom designed tooling. Resistance welding cells range from single or multi-gun fixed automation to transguns mounted on multi-axis robots.
Watchdawg is the Orbitform Group's line of process monitoring and process control products. Besides welding, Orbitform offers Watchdawg for various other assembly related processes.
