Operating the Inrotech-Classic is very simple.
The welding robot on the rails must be positioned in approximate distance to the welding job.
The operator is only required to give two simple instructions to the robot in order to start up the welding process: Which direction (right or left) and how many jobs.
Once the system has been given this information, it starts a short sensing sequence, where the object is identified by means of a laser sensor.
Once the object has been recognized, the welding process is commencing automatically. This continues until the entire panel is welded.
At our customers up to 6 Inrotech-Classic robots are operated by one operator only.
The user panel consist of an intuitive, icon-based windows touch panel. Here the operator will find all commands in clear language, no codes and no programming are involved.
No special education is required. The operator, who do not need to have any robot experience, is ready to operate the system after a short introduction.
