Robotic Welding Cells Compact. Complete. Flexible.

Standard welding cells From one-off to series production

Robot welding cells are gaining in popularity. No wonder: welding robots can be deployed in a very small space and quickly reconfigured as needed. This makes robot welding very attractive, even for smaller companies.

Blumenbecker has long been a leading technology provider for arc welding, spot welding and laser welding in the automotive industry. This accumulated experience informs the development of our welding cells for various needs. Our welding cells are highly modular and standardized and so can be quickly adapted to any task. They are excellent choices for welding-intensive businesses of any size since the robots deliver consistent quality at any time of day.

Blumenbecker standard welding cells are plug-and-play for unprecedented mobility and flexibility. Being rugged machines, they can be easily moved to their production station by a forklift or crane and then simply plugged in to the power and supply lines. Setup and teardown takes very little time and results in minimal production downtime. Do you want to reconfigure your machine to produce other components or versions? Not a problem. Our machines are easy to expand thanks to their modular design and uniform platform size.

We supply two lines of standard welding cells:

  • Arc2GO for arc welding
  • Weld2GO for laser welding

We can deliver a standard welding cell perfectly tailored to your needs.

Five benefits of standard welding cells

1. Robust

Blumenbecker standard welding cells are extremely rugged. That means they can easily be moved around your production area with a forklift or crane.

2. Inexpensive

Our robot cells are an excellent value because we build them to be modular and are not tied to any one manufacturer.

3. Variable

Choose between Arc2GO robot cells for arc welding and Weld2GO robot cells for laser welding.

4. Plug and play

Standardized supply connections speed up commissioning – fast and easy.

5. Safe

We provide a one-of-a-kind all-round service, from the initial consultation, design and programming to maintenance by our service technicians.

Blumenbecker Arc2GO For one-off and series production

We supply Arc2GO standard welding cells in three basic configurations:

  • With a manual two-station turntable
  • With an electric two-station turntable
  • With a 3-axis KUKA Posiflex system

We can also ship the welding cells with a safety roller door if you wish. This reduces the overall footprint and is particularly suited for cells with electric turntables.

Blumenbecker's Arc2GO standard welding cells have a compact design that allows a small footprint, greater application versatility and exceptional user friendliness. Thanks to their extreme mobility – they can easily be moved by forklift and crane – they can be readily integrated into existing production environments, and if changes need to be made, can be quickly and flexibly placed wherever they offer the most benefit and efficiency in the production line.

We can also supply other cell-based robot applications for specific purposes such as gluing or handling. Ask us for details!

Blumenbecker Weld2GO Premium-quality laser welding

Laser welding stations are used for manifold manufacturing applications – from brazing roofs and tailgates in the automotive industry to welding door skins prior to pressing. However, they can also produce attractive welds that require no finishing in stainless steel, aluminium or copper.

Weld2GO is a complete, mobile, standardized system for robot laser welding and cladding.

Weld2GO Laser cladding

The Weld2GO laser welding cell is a standardized robot cell with a sliding top. It can be easily relocated with a forklift and expanded to up to eight robot axes.

Laser cladding deposits virtually any type of material onto the surface of a workpiece. This process works especially well for finishing surfaces and is often used to repair large components such as dies, moulds or drive and turbine parts that are too expensive to simply replace.

Robotic workplaces & Robotic cells Design Office & Assembly Workshop

In 2008, we founded our own machinery Design Office and Assembly Workshop in order to offer our customers significantly more comprehensive services than it was in the past, when we concentrated mainly on creation of application software. Today's workshop is fully equipped with mechanical appliances (lathe, cutters, shears, circular and band saw, etc.). There are two KUKA robots available for developing and testing of user's robotic applications. Designers make use very powerful 3D software Solid Edge ST2 for 3D modeling both individual parts and final weldments, further for automatic generation of 2D drawings from 3D models directly, etc. For off-line robot programming a special powerful software POWER MILL ROBOT INTERFACE is used, which represents a considerable shortening of the period for the creation and subsequent easy maintenance of user programs. This software also allows off-line optimizing of robot working paths. The concrete result of our Design Bureau.

Our services

Consulting

Blumenbecker offers a wide range of services for its roboter welding cells. Our most important service, though, is probably pre-sales consulting. We work with you to analyse individual requirements and develop the solutions that consider not just your technical needs but your budget as well. Our goal is always to supply the best-possible solution for you.

Programming

We program the control units for our robot welding cells at our factory using in-house experts and state-of-the-art software.

Repairs

We generally keep a stock of the most important wearing parts for the machinery we sell and can ship them out within 24 hours. We can also provide professional engineering and repair services for more complex challenges by working with our other business divisions. Also, thanks to our many service centres, our technicians are never far away and can keep your machinery running smoothly.

Offline programming

Offline simulation lets us design and test welding processes in a dynamic 3D environment, define and validate process sequences with realistic behaviours and optimised cycle times and simulate initial start-up operations.

That way, we can eliminate design flaws early on and verify information flows between PLCs and robots. All these preparations get your system up and running much sooner.

Installation / Dismantling

Our trained installers will professionally install and dismantle your robot welding cells following a modernisation or a similar project.

Training

We offer a variety of training courses on different practical topics at our robotics workshops or our in-house competence centre for welding technology, for example. All courses are taught by highly qualified instructors.

  • Crane training courses: We offer crane operator certification classes for various types of crane. Once the participants have passed the final written and practical exams, they will receive a crane operator certification for the crane type that they trained for.
  • Robot training courses: Participants are introduced to industrial robots and learn how to perform simple maintenance tasks themselves.
  • E-procurement training courses: We teach people how to use the e-procurement software systems that their companies have adopted.

After-sales service

Our skilled technicians perform routine maintenance on robots – whether we supplied and installed them or not. We operate in this capacity as a KUKA System Partner, for example.

Repairs that cannot be completed in the field will be performed at one of our well-equipped repair shops. We keep frequently needed spare parts in stock.

We can also help with any unforeseen problems with your robots. We respond swiftly and use tried-and-tested troubleshooting processes to get your production up and running again quickly.

Products and manufacturing processes change, and your robots need to change with them. When this happens, our engineers can reprogram your robots. They can also make design and functional modifications and address your retooling needs.

 

Engineering / Design

We engineer and design all our products ourselves. With our engineers’ expertise, you can rest assured that your ideas will be realised exactly as you envisioned them from the moment the engineering process begins.

Commissioning

After your roboter welding cells has been shut down temporarily or newly installed, our skilled engineers and technicians will professionally commission your roboter welding cells and monitor the start-up process.
