Welding Manipulator to Support Multiple Welding Processes

Koike Aronson Ransome has announced the Cricket-II, a new welding manipulator that is designed for use with Subarc, TIG and MIG welding applications.

"The Cricket-II from Koike offers the most stability in its class, with the ability to produce consistent welds and maintain joint alignment," said a company spokesperson. It is equipped with a lift speed of 20 IPM, and a variable speed-powered reach option offers adjustable speeds from three to 120 IPM.

With a load capacity of 500 lbs., the Cricket-II can accommodate all welding processes. It also features CAM roller guidance and through-the-boom cable management. With NEMA-12 electrical enclosures, the Cricket-II is designed for safe operation indoors with built-in protection from foreign debris, dust and water infiltration. This new welding manipulator also comes with a mast rotation option, which allows the operator to swing the boom out of the work area or to work efficiently between two stations with one manipulator. Other options include travel cars, cross slides, digital speed controls and self-standing bases.

The Cricket-II is manufactured in the United States, allowing for accessible service, parts and support. "Koike works collaboratively with its customers to find the right solution with customized machines and services and offers in-house maintenance training at its headquarters in Arcade, NY," said the spokesperson.
