If you have been thinking about automation, but have not been able to overcome your fear of having to invest millions in robots and other expenditures, we can put your mind at ease. The automation solutions offered by Lorch will not cost you the world, but will streamline your operation tremendously.
What is the minimum quantity to make automate welding worth it? The general rule: the higher the quantities, the better the return on invest! Next to the net unit costs there are far more aspects that contribute to higher productivity of welding production. Our experts will gladly advice you under which circumstances an automation pays off for you.
High quality welding automation requires complete control over high quality power sources, welding torches and further components and systems such as precision torch and workpiece manipulation. Alongside the aspiration to increase productivity, the central point of welding automation is and will always remain the guarantee of the required level of weld quality. To reach both targets without detours, competences in automation and welding are both necessary. Based on the motto All from one source provides Lorch a direct and safe way into the welding automation.
Higher productivity, better quality and lower costs
Boost the performance of your welding production by combining your Lorch power sources with Lorch’s new welding carriages. The welding carriage takes charge of guiding the torch continuously, allowing the welder to solely focus on setting the welding parameters. This gives a welcome boost to productivity and the quality of the weld seam. The heat input becomes much easier to control and will cause significantly less distortion. The high level of repeatability and reproducibility also decrease stress levels to unprecedented lows. And, a greater distance to the torch improves the work situation for the welder tremendously.
The right solution for every application
Welding carriages are an exceptionally useful tool that helps the welder produce perfect longitudinal and curved seams. Typical applications for this technology are long support structures commonly found in the trailer and rail vehicle construction industry, shipbuilding or during the construction of containers, e.g. of lorry, oil and water tanks. While the basic requirement for precise torch guidance is the same for all areas, each individual application has additional requirements that are highly specific. Lorch’s line of welding carriages comes with an extensive range of accessories that leave nothing to be desired. Your Lorch consultant will be happy to find the solution that is right for you.

Simple automation of circumferential welding seams
Turntables are classified as basic components to start the increase in productivity for welding. Next to the automate welding of circular welds, there is also the possibility to use it for simple positioning of work pieces during manual welding. The turn table series Lorch Turn IC offers you a wide range regarding work piece weights and possibilities of configurations, at an extremely attractive cost-effectiveness.
The turn tables Lorch Turn IC consists out of five series, which were optimized regarding of their fields of application.
Each of the series are equipped with an integrated control, are able to be configured with different gears and can be optional delivered with an automate torch positioning and further accessories.

Pre-engineered roundseam solutions – that’s smart.
Increase the performance of your welding production with the pre-engineered roundseam solutions by Lorch. Our pre-engineered roundseam solutions have a thoughtful configuration and combine with it the cost benefits of standard solutions with customized production of special solutions. That makes automation fun.
For almost every roundseam application the right solution.
Whether small and filigree work pieces or large and heavy components – the intoned program of the pre-engineered roundseam solutions by Lorch covers up a wide range of roundseam applications.
Typical applications are any rotationally symmetrical components such as shafts, flanges, pipes, rods, cylinders, tanks and boilers with a weight lighter than 1 kg up to far over 5000 kg.
The high configuration of the pre-engineered roundseam solutions allow a strong adaption to the particular application. Your Lorch contact person will be gladly to advice the right solution to you.

Model kit beats grab bag
Lorch’s modular system kit makes sure that you will only pay for what you really need when it comes to automating your welding task.
One must set the tone. The LorchControl control unit acts as the conductor of an automation orchestra that plays in perfect harmony. All modules of the system kit work together seamlessly and receive their commands from the control unit via the LorchNet bus system.
Real short changeover times
Automating small batch sizes economically for often changing tasks; that is the challenge and the changeover time is the critical factor. No time must be wasted. The system perfectly supports each step. All settings can be made quickly and precisely. The Tiptronic job memory in the power source and LorchControl is extremely helpful. The welder has prepared the system for the present welding tasks in the shortest time.
Time-consuming pre-tests are no longer necessary. The preparation of the system is a matter of minutes and the handling afterwards is child’s play for every operator: Insert workpiece, press button, and the welding process starts.
