Rosio™ Friction Stir Welding Robot Robot for Welding Challenging Joints FSW
Features The ESAB Friction Stir Welding robot system enables flexible joining of complex structures, ideally aluminum. The ability to perform welds in an arbitrary direction of a 3-dimensional workspace increases the possibilities of usage for new challenging FSW applications. The cell consists of an ABB IRB 7600 robot, modified for the purpose of FSW. The welding equipment is integrated in the mechanical structure of the robot without limiting the robot's standard working envelope. The robot's reachable workspace spans over 2.5 meters (8.2 ft.), in which a down force of up to 13 kN may be applied during welding. Running on the state-of-the-art control system IRC5, an embedded force control solution allows in-contact motions with high accuracy. An extension to the standard motion programming language is included - this extension includes instructions for welding linear in arbitrary directions, circular and square shaped paths, as well as functionalities to support custom made path programming and spindle operations. To provide valuable feedback to the operator, a manmachine- interface is included extending the IRC5's own interface on the Flex Pendant, based on WinCE.
