Stäubli Robotics Redefines Efficiency in Metal Fabrication at FABTECH 2023

Stäubli Robotics, a leading international player in industrial automation, will draw attendees to Booth #B15021 (North Hall) at FABTECH, the biggest event of its kind in North America, for live demos and insights on robot-based automation solutions for overcoming the industry’s most pressing challenges. Metal fabricators from across industries and the world flock to FABTECH, held at Chicago’s McCormick Place on September 11-14, for the latest in metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing.

Stäubli Robotics designs solutions from the standpoint of real-world pain points, and metal fabrication shops and manufacturers have their share: labor shortages, higher material costs due to supply chain issues, and the need for higher output and shorter cycle times pose real obstacles. But these issues are solvable, and the company is at the forefront, tipping the scale toward profitability with robots that keep the workflow moving and consistently turn out quality products.

Meticulous 3D laser cutting

At FABTECH, Stäubli Robotics will feature a laser cutting demo with its TX2-160L HDP (high dynamic precision) robot, a game changer in automotive, metal, and other manufacturing plants tasked with laser cutting of complex parts. The TX2-160L HDP handles elaborate cutting paths with ease, displaying high dynamic performance and impressive path accuracy at various speeds. The TX2-160L HDP’s precision is repeatable across all trajectories and orientations, accommodating different shapes, contours, thicknesses, and other parameters. A versatile tool changer enables it to easily switch from cutting to inspection. This level of flexibility makes it an asset in mass production as well as high-mix, low-volume production. The results: higher output, less material waste, fewer costly errors, and shorter cycle times.

 Programming made simple

There is no need for operators with programming expertise, thanks to Stäubli’s latest generation of easy programming software and user-friendly robotic teach pendant. FABTECH attendees will experience this for themselves at the training cell in Booth #B15021. The training presentation will use a pick-and-place operation with a TX2-60 robot, and visitors will have the opportunity to use the new SP2 plus pendant and learn how to build a basic application. Stäubli offers a complete range of industrial robots for processing metal parts. These compact, enclosed robotic arms with various attachment options are ideal for numerous high-speed applications such as finishing, die trimming, modeling, drilling, tapping, deburring, contouring, and weld bead machining using various materials, e.g., aluminum, stainless steel, or composites.
