The FW (Ferris Wheel) from Arcrite Automation features two single-axis positioners (supporting custom tooling bridles) separated by a 180 degree servo driven indexing wall, to protect the operator from potentially harmful sparks and UV radiation during welding.  The cell is designed with light curtains at least 4 feet away from the indexing wall at all times, ensuring that the operator cannot stand in its path and that the cell is RIA safety compliant.  The cell is designed to be highly modular; it is capable of welding virtually any part size with any pair of the major brands of six-axis robotic arms.  Additionally, each of the tooling bridles can be reconfigured to be larger, or feature small single-axis positioners in the event of complex weld path geometry.  There is a door in the back of the cell for easy entry, primarily for maintenance purposes.  The skid and trailer for each of the individual robot systems is one solid body, featuring fork lift pockets in the side for easy installation and relocation.  The combined trailers at the back corners of the cell have sheet metal protection, adequate space and built-in wiring paths for most major/standard robot controllers, power/wire supply units, and water coolers necessary making this cell a fully integrated, automated welding solution.
