Kawasaki Robotics to Showcase the BA006L at FABTECH

In the spring of 2017, Kawasaki Robotics introduced the BA006L robot, a compact arc welding model with hollow wrist and increased reach for welding large workpieces, and it will be on display at FABTECH 2018 in Atlanta, GA, November 6-8.


"Built exclusively for arc welding applications, the BA006L uses the latest arc welding technology to rival the quality of a skilled human welder," said a company spokesperson. "The 6 kg payload model has a long reach of 2,036 mm, compared to the BA006N robot's reach of 1,445 mm. The 45 mm inner diameter of the BA006L robot’s hollow wrist structure allows for through-arm cabling, simplifying cable and hose management. The hollow wrist design is compatible with torch manufacturers’ equipment and can be fitted with dress package cabling to minimize potential interference with other processing and manufacturing equipment."


The spokesperson added, "The centers of the upper arm's length and rotation axis have been separated, allowing wire feeders to be placed in the space behind the upper arm. This is an improvement over their former position above the arm because it largely prevents wire feed cables from being bent excessively and minimizes wire feeders' interference with peripheral equipment during welding. This provides more operation flexibility and allows joint 6 to operate at higher speeds, increasing productivity. In addition to preventing in process cable snagging, this speeds up onsite programming and eliminates 'cable positioning variables' to make offline programming more efficient and maintenance faster." 


The BA006L is equipped standard with arc welding specific software to enable quick and easy programming of the process path. Adaptive welding functionality is available to modify robot position, weave pattern and speed during welding to fill variable joints. The built-in intelligence, flexibility and high accuracy of the BA006L robot deliver throughput for a wide range of arc welding applications.
