The Robotic MIG Welding system contains resistance spot welding, projection welding, drawn arc welding and a sealer application.
The robotic weld system provided accommodations for multiple structural end item assemblies that consisted of resistance spot welding, projection welding, drawn arc welding, as well as a sealer application. The system contained multiple welding cells with a total of 50 robots.
The end item assemblies within this program were Load Beams, Rear Quarter Inner, Rear Closure Inner Assembly, Dash Assembly, Cowl Side, Center Floor Pan Assembly and Sill Outer. Some welding cells utilized dial indexers to improve the efficiency of the robots. Within the process some robots carried weld guns while others were material handling robots that moved the assemblies through pedestal welders (spot, projection and drawn arc) or pedestal sealers.
Fori USA was responsible for Project Management, Engineering, Assembly and Integration. All cells were run off at Fori’s global headquarters in Shelby Township, MI. Fori Mexico was responsible for installation and run off at the customer’s facility.
