At the Schweisstec in Stuttgart in October, Cloos will present innovative solutions for a quicker, more economic and more flexible welding production.
The innovative solutions for welding production will offer technologies from manual welding machines to automated chained robot systems.
Qineo welding power sources: from entry to premium
During live-demonstrations of manual welding, trade visitors can experience the constantly growing product range of the Qineo welding machines live. The Qineo Start allows an easy start into the world of modern Mig/Mag welding technology. Due to the favourable price-performance ratio, users can weld any workpiece at economic conditions. The Qineo Next Mig/Mag welding power source convinces by excellent arc characteristics for highest welding quality. The modular design allows many utilisation possibilities – from the basic welding machine for manual welding to the multi-process welding machine for automated robot welding. In addition, the new Qineo Quest now complements the portfolio for high-end Tig applications. The new welding power source was specially developed for Tig welding processes and is particularly suitable for the most demanding welding connections and highest quality requirements.
The new Qineo welding power sources are characterized in particular by digital connectivity, maximum energy efficiency and the possibility of integrating new welding processes. Innovative welding processes such as Fine Weld and Motion Weld as well as new combination options of different processes in one weld seam ensure maximum quality and efficiency.
Automation solutions – live connections to the production
“In addition, we make live connections from our exhibition stand to our production site in Haiger,” says Stephan Pittner, technical managing director of Cloos. “This way, visitors can directly find out more about our complex solutions for automated welding and ask questions to the experts on site.”
Cloos offers integrated solutions for automated welding. Due to its modular design, the Qirox system allows scalable solutions which can perfectly match different applications and the individual production requirements. The Qirox system includes the robot technology, positioners, safety technology, software, sensors and the interface to the process technology. It is completed by an extensive range of options and complementary services.
Extensive robot range
“Today we offer more than 20 different types of robots and have thus doubled our range of robots in the last two to three years,” explains Pittner. “It was important for us to offer customers robot mechanics for every conceivable application, from small, thin parts in the automotive sector to special application robots for laser hybrid welding and automated grinding.” This also increases the degree of automation in upstream and downstream processes. Customers often want to combine solutions for automated welding technology with different manufacturing technologies such as grinding applications in one production line.
Digitisation platform for the factory of the future
In addition, Cloos is constantly expanding its range of digital solutions. Increasing digitisation enables optimal control and continuous improvement of manual and automated welding production.
With the C-Gate IoT platform, users can access information from their welding production in real time. All information is entered and processed centrally in an integrated information and communication tool. This allows users to monitor and control their production processes down to the smallest detail. It consists of several modules which users can activate depending on their individual digitalisation strategy – consistently from the manual welding power source to the fully automated production line.
Cloos will be exhibiting at Schweisstec in Hall 7, Stand 7416.
