Mobile, Robotic Welding-Training Cart Suitable for the Plant Floor
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 Introduces the World’s First Fiber Laser Cutting System with Locus Beam Control (LBC)
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.
