Cloos welding solutions improve precision in manufacturing
November 2, 2023 11:13 am
Recent technological advancements have revolutionised metal joining processes, leading to a shift in welding technology trends. SumonMitra, COO, Cloos India Welding Technology affirms Cloos is at the forefront of the innovations with comprehensive solutions.
What are the latest solutions in welding technologies developed by Cloos that are revolutionising the manufacturing industry?
Advancements in technology have ushered in substantial transformations in metal joining processes. Consequently, emerging welding technology trends are slowly shifting away from traditional materials and manual methods towards cutting-edge arc welding, automated processes, and the latest metals and alloys. Moreover, there has been a notable enhancement in welding training and welding safety measures, ensuring a secure welding environment and handson practice. In this context, Cloos has already pioneered numerous comprehensive welding technology solutions.
Cold Weld by QineoNexT AC Premium for precise welding with optimum heat input. It achieves
excellent results when welding challenging materials using the directionally stable MIG/MAG AC pulsed arc of Cold Weld. Cold Weld combines a pulsed arc with AC technology. Due to the adjustable AC part you can individually control the heat input into the component. Cold Weld enables higher welding speeds by increasing the deposition rate while maintaining an optimal heat input, which positively impacts the component and material characteristics. The reduced heat input preserves the original material properties, minimising distortion and the need for extensive rework. Additionally, Cold Weld can compensate for material tolerances thanks to its excellent gap-bridging ability.

To advance automation, Cloos has pioneered robotic welding systems with ARC seam tracking technology, tactile sensing, and adaptive capabilities. These technologies automatically detect and rectify any deviations in welding seams or variations in groove preparation. Cloos’ technology eliminates the need for re-teaching. It also boosts productivity and ensures consistent weld quality, even when dealing with variations in pre-weld products.
How does automation technology address the shortage of skilled welders in the industry?
Many companies need more proficient welders and the need for non-repetitive welding tasks. To address this challenge, Cloos introduces the Arcbot as their initial foray into automation solutions.
The QINEO ArcBot includes all the essential components for automated welding, designed to work perfectly together and easy to mount. This compact “Ready to weld” package arrives fully operational, facilitating its smooth integration into current production workflows. The integrated safety components guarantee essential personnel protection. An electrically adjustable protective screen can be added to the optional welding table. This shields the surrounding area from the UV radiation generated during welding.
“It is ready with all types of Mig&Tig welding machine and innovative welding process of Cloos and also with Fume extraction torch with filter unit to maintain the floor environment.”
QiroxRoboscan solution efficiently automates welding for even the most petite batch sizes. In steel and metal construction, creating automated welding programs for small batches can be time-consuming and costly. With the IRPS Instant Robot Programming System, you can generate automated welding programs quickly, making it cost-effective to weld even individual workpieces. That implies that automated welding of workpieces in batch size 1 pays off now.
The IRPS benefits
This system minimises the programming effort, resulting in significant time savings, enhanced system efficiency, and eliminating the need for a CAD workstation. However, recognising the position and tolerances of the workpiece provides excellent weld quality and saves time because re-teaching is optional. Moreover, eliminating clamping devices reduces investment costs and minimises non-productive time.
In these ways, planning times are shortened, allowing for just-in-time production, reduced personnel and resource allocation, and quicker delivery periods. The intuitive operation allows for a flexible use of personnel with minimal training expenditure.
How is welding technology adapting to embrace digitalisation and data-driven processes in the era of Industry 4.0?
Cloos has integrated its Industry 4.0 software, C-gate, to offer the necessary signals for Industry 4.0. The C-Gate IoT platform enables realtime access to welding production data, which is centrally entered and processed within an integrated information and communication tool. This empowers users to oversee and manage their production processes with precision closely. The platform includes multiple modules users can activate based on their unique digitalisation strategies.
