Amada Weld Tech this week announced the availability of the Jupiter series of modular systems for precision joining, available for laser welding, laser marking, resistance welding, micro arc welding and hot bar bonding applications.
The Jupiter modular system platform comes in four sizes and enables connections of high quality and accuracy, according to the company. The modular design is configurable to fit all process components and modules. The Jupiter models feature an ergonomic system designed for continuous production. All models are equipped with a human-machine interface (HMI) with a touchscreen for programming and standard safety features.
Control systems, based upon a programmable logic controller (PLC) or industrial PC, collect process parameters and process data into one control system. The data can be stored in local and remote storage areas, engineered to integrate with an Industry 4.0 factory concept.
Optional features include a combustion suppression unit (CSU) for battery pack welding; a transport system with two belts that can be configured for a range of product carriers, including transfer systems; an automatic cleaning station for electrodes and thermodes; a “Not OK” bin to separate products outside the control limits from those within control limits; and a range of water-cooling options. Also available are upgraded data collection and traceability functionalities, including a barcode reader or a label printer; and interfaces for a variety of robotic systems.
