Posted by Melissa Gomez on Jan 21, 2020 10:52:34 AM

IRCO Automation delivers a linear robot for box beam welding.

IRCO’s newly designed linear robot is optimized for pre-programmed multi-pass welding on multiple joints of the box beam. Without stopping, this system can weld each joint from one end of the work piece to the other, repeating its set sequence during the scheduled job until welding is complete. With numerous add-on features integrated into its design, this 3-axis linear robot has a 4th axis for supporting and rotating the workpiece.
