Quick and easy integration with the robot
The AX MIG Welder is a state-of-the-art automated MIG/MAG welding solution. The complete and balanced package includes a wire feeder, X5 FastMig power source, interconnection cables, and a cooling unit.
The AX MIG Welder can be integrated with any robot. At Ocotec, the integration with the Turin TKB2030 robot went very smoothly and without surprises, according to Lind. Welding parameters were easily found based on previous parameters. The entire stock of consumables and accessories did not need to be replaced, as the consumables and interconnection cables of the A7 MIG Welder already in use were also suitable for the AX MIG Welder. This sped up and simplified the setup process. "The support and aftercare have worked, and after the test welds, we had the robotic cell in production with just a few weeks of installation," says Lind.
The integration for Ocotec was a joint effort between Kemppi and Robomatik representatives. Robomatik is based in Vilppula, Finland, and its products include design, manufacturing, and integrating processing tables for welding jigs and welding robots, as well as programming, training, consulting, and maintenance related to welding robotics.
"Compared to other power sources, the AX MIG Welder is easy and quick to install. This is also essential for the customer so that production interruptions are kept to a minimum," says Jani Matikainen, Managing Director of Robomatik.
Robomatik has a lot of experience with Kemppi equipment and robot integrations. "We always discuss things openly with Kemppi, and as a result, we develop products together. In Finland in particular, Kemppi's domestic presence is a clear advantage, and cooperation with a well-known brand has also expanded our customer base," says Matikainen.
The AX MIG Welder also marks a new step in the long-term relationship between Ocotec and Kemppi.
"The ease and straightforwardness of the integration strengthened our good cooperation. The fact that Kemppi is a Finnish company is also very important to us. Kemppi provides us with a good service network and efficient customer service," says Ocotec's Jouni Lind.
