Lincoln Electric Introduces the Easily Programmable Fab-Pak Cobot Guru Robotic Collaborative System


May 28, 2021

The new Fab-Pak Cobot Guru system from Lincoln Electric automates the highest mix of different products while providing even non-welders with the ability to easily program it for increased productivity in even the smallest of workspaces.

It comes standard with the following components:

  •    –   FANUC CRX 10iA with tablet-based teach pendant
  •    –   Integrated pushbutton torch control
  •    –   AutoDrive 4R100 Wire Feeder
  •    –   Power Wave R450 Welder
  •    –   Fixed welding table
  •    –   Heavy-duty casters
  •    –   Stabilizing kickstand
  •    –   Utility drawer and tablet tray

The Fab-Pak Cobot Guru system’s dual-action, pushbutton interface and intelligent torch system allow operators to reduce cumbersome programming. Users at any level of expertise, including those with zero robotics experience, can record weld points with the push of a button and teach the cobot arm directly at the torch.

Operators can simply move the cobot’s arm with their hand to the start and finish waypoints. The cobot does the rest by calculating weld settings and parameters using the Lincoln Electric Arc Welding plug-in and then fluidly and automatically welds the part.

The system also features a new tablet teaching pendant that uses Icon-Based Timeline Programming. This feature reduces the programming learning curve by making it more relatable to an app-based generation of welders. Available upgrades include integrated fume extraction, a dual-zone, manual turntable system, and flexible tooling kits.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
