To help manufacturers adopt new robotic welding capabilities quickly and inexpensively, Acieta has developed FastArc standard weld cells. The new cells are pre-engineered with integrated utilities and a one-piece platform for faster delivery and startup.

“Labor and capacity are both major concerns for manufacturers of all sizes right now. Automated welding is a great way to address those, but finding the time and budget for complex, robotic solutions has been a real challenge,” says Pete Rogers, vice president of operations. “The FastArc standard cells eliminate these barriers, so nearly any company can get started with automation and see a return on investment in less than two years.”

Four standard cells are available with attachments and upgrade options. FastArc cells come standard with Lincoln Electric or Miller weld equipment, though other options are available. The Single Zone cell offers a large workzone and automated steel pop-up door for flash protection and operator safety. The Dual Zone cell enables loading and unloading while the robot is welding as well as the ability to weld different parts simultaneously. The Dual Zone Fixed Table cell includes two workzones and automated steel pop-up doors for flash protection. The Dual Zone Turn Table cell features a servo-driven turntable with steel divider guard for fast, accurate and safe rotation between cycles.
