SnapWeld Collaborative Robot Welding Package < Back to overview
What is it?

The new Collaborative Robot Welding Package developed by ARC Specialties Inc. and Universal Robots is a cobot-assisted, interactive welding system that can be deployed easily and flexibly in existing, manual welding booths, eliminating the need for costly new robotic cells.

The welding system integrated with the UR robot is comprised of a Profax wire feeder and water cooled torch enabling welds up to 600 amps, with torch bracket, all cables and hose packages included. The simplified programming is enabled through direct software integration into Universal Robots own programming environment through the , that will allow users to program advanced settings directly on the teach pendant that comes with the UR robot. Settings include features such as wire feed speed and burn back time, gas flow time, and crater fill time with instant feedback on welding volts and amps.

 


Features

Process Features
While other welding solutions require programming of the start and stop point of each welding stitch, SnapWeld lets you teach the UR robot the start and stop points by moving the robot arm through way points. You simply enter the number and length of each stitch weld and the robot will move along the start and stop path, welding only during the specified stitch areas, significantly reducing the programming time. Upcoming features include: Weaving, height control, seam tracking, and touch sensing.
