Talking about the role of automated technologies towards efficient welding process, Sumon Mitra, Sales Director, Cloos India Welding Technology Private Limited takes OEM Update through their latest technological addition of C-Gate software.
What are the latest automation technologies being used to ensure smooth operations in welding processes?
Although the business has seen irrecoverable loss during the pandemic, it has put a spotlight on the role of automation in business. Industries out there right now are facing supply chain issues, the need for agility, the need for speed, workplace disruption, and more. That’s where CLOOS comes into play with new range of QIROX 290, the entry level Robotic Welding Technology together CloosQineo power source to help companies move through work in the new normal. The main advantage of CLOOS as we are providing complete solution from SINGLE SOURCE. Immediate expert advice for your welding need to manufacturing, supplying, installation and weld quality proving at customer site.
How far 2D and 3D technologies are being adapted in welding sector to ensure precision?
CLOOS RoboPlan QRP professional is the maximum configuration level of the modular Cloos Offline programming software. This requires the 3D design of your product. Due to the application of various software modules you can perfectly match the system to your requirements. Thus, you reach the highest programming efficiency. Below are the few advantages of CloosRobo plan software –
- Integrated auxiliary equipment enables cause of fault to be quickly recognised and removed
- No interruption of the production due to the measurement process
- Production of faulty workpieces is almost completely prevented
- Quality assurance
- Program reproducibility is maintained
Availability of manpower has been one of the challenges amid pandemic. Do you think automation and other technologies can surpass the manpower requirement in future?
Automation will surely fulfil the requirement/shortage of manpower in some sector. But this will ensure high level of accuracy through connectivity and interface. Finally create job in new sector.
CLOOS have developed C Gate software. The new C-Gate CLOOS gateway enables demand-based management of welding and robot data. All information is entered and processed centrally in an integrated information and communication tool. The customised presentation of information enables detailed visualisation, analysis and continued processing of the operating and welding process data collected. The new system consists of the system-related hardware and the software modules production, quality management and service. With the production module you can illustrate the performance and the efficiency of your robot systems, localise shortages and increase the efficiency. The module allows a comprehensive online monitoring of the robot systems with a detailed reporting about availability, capacity and quality. Thus, you early recognise weak points in the production run. Furthermore, you considerably reduce system breakdowns or waiting times due to set-up and other downtimes. The new C-Gate can be integrated into existing Industry 4.0 environments. Via standardised interfaces it is possible to transfer the data to superior IT-based solutions such as MES and cloud applications or other systems. Finally, we have to accommodate with the changes and accept the truth that “Change is the only constant”.
