New gantry system for welding automation

ESAB Group : 10 May, 2002  (New Product)
Increasing requirements for automation of the submerged arc welding process has led ESAB to introduce the MechTrac motor driven gantry system. The gantry unit provides an extension to the range of automation systems already available for SAW applications, which includes powered roller beds and a variety of welding tractor units such as A2 Multitrac, A2 Weldtrac and A6 Mastertrac.
Increasing requirements for automation of the submerged arc welding process has led ESAB to introduce the MechTrac motor driven gantry system. The gantry unit provides an extension to the range of automation systems already available for SAW applications, which includes powered roller beds and a variety of welding tractor units such as A2 Multitrac, A2 Weldtrac and A6 Mastertrac.

MechTrac is designed specifically for use with ESAB's proven A2 submerged arc welding system under the control of the A2-A6 process controller. In addition the system can be configured for gas metal arc welding.

The system has the capability to offer linear welding speeds from 0.2 m/min to 2.0 m/min. It comprises a steel gantry available in widths of 1500 mm and 2000 mm, and a floor mounted rail available in three metre sections. Mountings for the welding head, flux container and wire bobbin are provided on the cross-rail as semi-permanent fixtures which may be altered in accordance with operational requirements. Maximum allowable weight on the gantry is 220 kg.

MechTrac thus provides an economic means of developing a highly repeatable semi-automatic facility for laying down flat, linear submerged arc welds. The system offers full compatibility with existing ESAB equipment and is fully compliant with relevant European safety legislation.
