Automated welding

Modular system circular weld seam

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.

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.
