are uncertain times. COVID-19 (coronavirus) is impacting every aspect
of our daily lives, especially in manufacturing. This webinar
will discuss how metal forming and fabricating executives are leading
during this crisis, managing their supply chains, overseeing cash flow
The new ABB Mobile Robotic Welding Training Cart, a portable, pre-engineered robotic cell designed specifically for robotic welding training, was highlighted in ABB’s 2019 FABTECH booth. Equipment includes a welding robot, controller, power supply and a welding torch.
AMADA’s LBC Technology creates infinite locus patterns—ensuring the optimum beam shape for each specific cutting application. This results in the highest quality cuts in both stainless and mild steel and the best edge quality in aluminum with virtually no dross. The VENTIS 3015 AJ leverages a high-brightness fiber laser oscillator to maintain optimum quality of the high-energy density laser beam. Unique cutting capabilities and exceptional speed enable the 4kW VENTIS to easily rival fiber lasers utilizing much higher wattage at a considerably lower operating cost.
Hardox Corp. has introdued Duroxite 200 Wire, a flux-cored welding
wire, like other Duroxite products, made of abrasion-resistant material
deposited on top of mild steel or Hardox wear plate to create a
wear-resistant compound material.
FABTECH, Bystronic Inc. demonstrated its ByStar Fiber 12-kW fiber
laser, offering speed and cut-quality capabilities that enable an
expanded spectrum of cutting applications from thin sheet to thick
plate, according to company officials. The system features the new
BySort, which fully automates part sorting.
FABTECH, LVD Strippit demonstrated its compact Dyna-Cell robotic
bending cell, with a footprint of 16 by 16 ft. and now available with
the Easy-Form Laser in-process adaptive-bending system, which ensures
the desired angle from the first bending operation, according to company
A/S debuted at FABTECH a unified mechanical and electrical interface
for any OnRobot end-of-arm tooling (EoAT), designed to simplify
automation. This new one-system solution speeds deployment to
manufacturers, enabling them to save time and money, and quickly realize
the benefits of automation, according to company officials. Watch video
Machinery Systems introduced its new ball-screw press brake, the BB306,
at FABTECH. The fully electric machine features a smaller footprint to
fit any facility and form smaller parts. Other standard features:
integrated all-axis pulse handle; thickness detection; five-axis
backgauge; front and back LED lighting; and large, user-friendly
control. Watch video
The LAS 200.1 laser fume extractor, the latest addition to ULT AG’s ULT 200.1 series, features a filtration concept that reportedly significantly increases pollutant-separation efficiency. The newly designed prefilter package includes a filter mat and panel filter for longer filter life and long-term cost savings.
The Twincut, an automatic CNC tube-sawing machine from BLM Group USA, can cut parts simultaneously in two different lengths. The machine’s automatic feeder loads bars for cutting, with finished parts automatically unloaded, thus providing for continuous, high-productivity operations.
