The integration of welding processes into digitised production flows offers the opportunity to boost the transparency and efficiency of production even further. Jonas Kappel, Director of Product Management and responsible for the Industry 4.0 division at Lorch Schweißtechnik GmbH, spells out how even companies of small and medium size can easily benefit from this vital technological step forward without the need for any major investments.
Yaskawa, technology supplier with a global operation specialising in robotics and control technology, is teaming up with Lorch Schweißtechnik, one of the technology leaders in the field of MIG-MAG welding. Their future cooperation will make new and innovative welding solutions available to industrial businesses across Europe. Both partners see enormous potential for mid-size businesses to use the next couple of years to automate their production processes and update their existing structures to the latest developments in digital production.
On the heels of their tremendously successful launch of Cobot MIG-MAG Welding Packages, Lorch Schweißtechnik is now launching a Cobot solution for TIG welding. This new TIG version of the welding Cobot allows companies to weld even smaller batches of particularly challenging components with the utmost speed, reliability and TIG quality. This solution offers businesses enormous economic potential, especially in the TIG segment, where finding skilled labour has become especially difficult.
Never before has it been this easy to make welding production fully transparent. Lorch Connect now enables companies to track every detail of their productivity and their processes in welding production. The focus linked to the key performance indicators (KPIs) and features of Lorch Connect is placed on the welding times, the cost incurred for each weld seam and the documentation of relevant parameters. All that without the need for an extensive IT installation or large investment sums.
Collaborative robots, so-called Cobots, are easy to use, allow for quick and flexible use and represent an exceptional option for small and medium-size companies thanks to their outstanding price-performance ratio. The brand-new “Lorch Cobot Welding Package” now lets companies tap entirely new potentials when it comes to the efficiency and quality of their welding operations. Aside from giving a sizeable boost to the productivity of every existing team of welders, digitisation and automation also fortifies the company against any future challenges by offsetting the impact of the constantly growing shortage of skilled welders.
Lorch offers new, innovative flux-cored wire packages for the SpeedArc, SpeedArc XT and SpeedUp processes that accelerate welding with rutile and metal-cored wire and significantly improve efficiency. As a result the customer can weld up to 30 per cent more quickly in combination with a Lorch system.
Lorch’s inception of their cutting-edge Speed welding processes has already made a significant contribution with the reduction of welding fume. However, a certain amount of fume cannot be avoided during welding. Realising this fact, Lorch Schweißtechnik is now unveiling their latest line of fume extractor torches. It enables the health of welders to be protected and offers companies a solution to the increasingly stringent limits for alveolar dust (A dust). The new torches set themselves apart with their compact design, highly efficient fume extraction and excellent welding performance.
Lorch Schweißtechnik is expanding the capacity of their operations at the Auenwald headquarters in Germany. Attended by Auenwald mayor Karl Ostfalk, the official ground-breaking ceremony was held recently to kick off the construction of a new hall. The goal behind this enlargement is to both streamline the logistics process of the company and to establish a more direct link to the service centre next door, which the company moved into only a short while ago.
The portable TIG welding inverter MicorTIG 200 engineered by Lorch Schweißtechnik has repeatedly demonstrated its impressive performance capabilities in the real world. Users of the new mobile TIG power package appreciate not only its incomparable versatility during industrial use and use at the construction site but also its intuitive control as well as its excellent ignition and welding characteristics.
