The manufacturing industry is under constant demand to improve efficiency and reduce costs. ARO has risen to the challenge and produced the first modular system, the 3G robotic welding gun. The revolutionary 3G modular system allows four gun variations to be created from 9 shared modules, 7 specific modules and 2 plug and play arms.
Using ARO’s unequalled modular and servo gun expertise, the family of 3G guns has up to 60% fewer parts than conventional gun designs and there is a high degree of component commonality between all of the 3G gun types.
The 3G gun bodies:
The revolutionary 3G modular system allows four gun variations to be created from nine shared modules, seven specific modules and 2 plug and play arms. These four variations are called the 3G-C, 3G-X (copper arms), the 3G-Z and the 3G-CZ (aluminium arms) guns which have different welding force versus arm length performance.
Rapid and easy assembly:
Assembly of the four types uses the 3G modular design. A fully functioning gun can be assembled quickly from a small number of standardised components. Once assembled the arms simply plug in and the whole assembly is ready for inspection:
MTTR is less than 10 minutes.
Delivery times are dramatically reduced.
3G Robotic Welding Guns Features
Capital investment incentives:
Reduced investment in spare guns required – 3G built in simplicity, leads to reduced MTTR
Reduced costs for spare parts due to standardisation of parts
The full cover defines the 3G model precisely for offline programming – No surprises when installing the gun on the line.
