Product Portfolio
  • Robot and Welding System Solutions

  • TAWERS from Panasonic: The integrated robot & welding solution, all from one manufacturer using a common CPU.
      • TAWERS - The Arc Welding Robot System

      • Robot and controller combined with welding power source and servo wire feeder in one unit. All from one manufacturer.

        Robot and controller fused with welding power source and servo wire feeder to one unit. Faster, better and worldwide unique. All from one manufacturer that pays off. 

        TAWERS offers all these welding processes:

        • SP-MAG
        • Hyper DIP Puls (HD-Puls)
        • Active Wire Process (AWP)
        • Hot Active and Active Aluminum Process
        • MAG-Heat
        • MTS-CO2
        • MIG Synchron Puls
        • PULL AC-MIG and DC-TIG
        • ZI-Tech Process
          • TAWERS WG3 Arc welding system

          • The TAWERS-WG3 Arc Welding System with integrated 350 ampere inverter pulse power source is suitable for MAG, MIG and TIG welding applications.

            Optimum welding processes are achieved by utilising an integrated inverter power source within the robot controller, ensuring complete synergy within the common control system.

            This ensures that the established benefits and advantages of the existing TAWERS Fusion Technology are also now available for use for the range of MIG, MAG and DC TIG welding process.

             

          • TAWERS WGH3 Arc welding system

          • The TAWERS WGH3 Arc Welding System with integrated 450 ampere inverter pulse power source is suitable for both MAG and MIG Welding applications.

            Optimum welding processes are achieved by utilising an integrated inverter power source within the robot controller, ensuring complete synergy within the common control system.

            This ensures that the established benefits and advantages of the existing TAWERS Fusion Technology are also now available for use with WGH3.

          • TAWERS Software

          • The “Weld Navigation” feature can be compared to a navigation system in the car. It guides the user in the parameter choice utilising a range of “on screen” information data pages ensuring the required welding target is realised. To find the best welding parameter for the application you need only to select joint type and material thickness. The remaining parameter will be automatically calculated by the configured synergy curve and welding speed. Additionally it’s possible to influence the design of throat thickness or joint length to adjust the joint design to specialised requirements. “Weld Navigation”, will automatically re-calculate the new parameter instantly. 

            New opportunities are now created allowing less experienced programmers with limited welding knowledge to seek and achieve perfect welding results within a short time. It will also allow the welding “expert” to reduce routine remedial work enabling them to concentrate their skill and know-how on product optimization.

        • LAPRISS (Laser Processing Robot Integrated System Solution)

        • Laser trepanning head mounted on a Panasonic robot with seamless interfacing between process and automation components.

              • Industrial robots: TS series

              • Panasonic provides complete system solutions according to the concept ‘All from one manufacturer’ with the new development of laser welding: LAPRISS!

                LAPRISS (Laser Processing Robot Integrated System Solution) uses the Panasonic servo control technology for controlling the laser trepanning head to generate several welding pattern and beam functions. This technological advantage makes the laser head extremely compact and light weight with a payload weight of only 4kg.
                An advantage of this low weight is to allow the laser head to be mounted to the high speed compact Panasonic TM series of robots.
                The result is a complete system with unique compactness and a seamless interface between the process and automation components.
                Because of its unique solution, LAPRISS has the potential to replace existing large foot print welding systems with a solution providing high speed that is immensely flexible and dramatically reduces floor space requirements.
