CMT Upgrade for TPS/i Robotics Power Source

Fronius is expanding the TPS/i Robotics power source with a new additional package for the stable Cold Metal Transfer (CMT) welding process.

The newly developed Robacta Drive CMT TPS/i push-pull welding torch features compact dimensions and a low weight.

Fronius has expanded the range of functions of its intelligent TPS/i Robotics power source. This system, which is specially designed for the requirements of robotic welding, can now be equipped with the stable Cold Metal Transfer (CMT) welding process using a new additional package. "Users benefit from the combination of a high and reproducible weld seam quality, maximum welding speeds and countless areas of application," said a company spokesperson.

With TPS/i CMT Robotics, Fronius combines the advantages of its latest MIG/MAG power source platform with a stable arc. The intelligent, modular system consists of interconnected and fully synchronized components and is specially designed to meet the demands of robot-assisted welding. The TPS/i power source has a high-performance processor and a high speed bus, enabling data to be exchanged quickly. This results in control loops that are faster than before. Two synchronized wirefeeders ensure dynamic and precise wirefeeding and thus a high process stability. The newly developed Robacta Drive CMT TPS/i push-pull welding torch enables easy access to the weldments, and low weight for use on robots with high traversing speeds.

TPS/i power sources that already have the Standard and Pulse function packages installed can easily be upgraded for the CMT process. "In comparison with other MIG/MAG welding processes, CMT reduces the heat input and enables continuous regulation from cold to hot. This results in a stable arc and much less spatter even at high welding speeds. It can be used for a wide variety of different applications, including welding light and medium-gauge sheets from 0.5 - 4 mm, root passes, galvanized steel applications and special connections such as copper, zinc, steel-aluminium and titanium. With TPS/i CMT Robotics, robot-assisted welding operations can be performed cost effectively, efficiently and to a high standard," said the spokesperson.
