Product Portfolio
  • Robot & Welding System Solutions

      • Industrial Robots

      • Panasonic provides industrial welding and handling robots with a wide range of robotic application. All robots are available as G3 Version with full digital communication to our Panasonic power sources or as WG3 Version with TAWERS technology. One advantage of TAWERS systems is the fusion of power source, controller, wire feeder servo motor and robot which share one CPU and are able to communicate very quickly
          • TM Series

          • Panasonic presents the TM Welding Robot Series, this being the all new and unique generation of robots. Customers have the possibility to decide freely whether to use an externally or internally mounted torch cable to match requirements of their applications. Additionally the robot series benefit from a highly rigid arm structure and an improved and efficient servo motor, which provides an enhanced harmonious movement for the positioning of the welding torch. With an all new high resolution encoder working in combination with the highly rigid arm, the TM robots provide improved path accuracy. Through this the TM robot fits optimally the requirements of a flexible and efficient welding process.
          • TL Series

          • The new developed TL Robot series by Panasonic has the opportunity to work in a 2 meter working area for wide and maximum reachable welding procedures. With the efficient and rapid mechanical system this robot is the fastest robot on the market. Compared to former products the speed of the major axis is adjusted to its maximum. An integrated wire feeder and an optional usable wire guiding are only two outstanding advantages of the new Panasonic robot model. The new torch design allows an optimal adjustment of the welding torch according to the installed TCP-properties. Through this an improved path accuracy and therefore an optimal welding result can be achieved.
          • Handling Robots

          • The Panasonic YS- & HS-G3 series provides an additional field of application capabilities within the existing robot product range.

                                          As in acquiring a solar system you are making a long-term and high value investment, the quality of the modules is of great impact. You should therefore choose a brand that will give you a reliable guarantee and which you can trust.
                                          Panasonic is one of the most established companies in solar technology. Our solar experience dates back almost four decades, when HIT® modules were developed and sold under the SANYO brand. Since then, more than 3,3 million modules were sold and installed in Europe alone (as of March. 2014).
