Technology doesn’t stand still at Stafier

Organize processes better and more efficiently. At Stafier they deal with this on a daily basis. In addition to new spot-welding techniques in their automated process, a new fully automated welding robot will be delivered soon.

Adding the  new welding robot to the machine park is a logical step. With this robot not only the welding capacity in the automated process will be expanded, but it makes it also possible to work more efficiently. A great addition where clients also benefit from.     

The latest addition is not just a machine. The entire system will be approximately 9.5 meters long and 5.5 meters wide. The system is equipped with a torch change system which makes it possible to weld both TIG and MIG. Stafier gets a state-of-the-art industrial automation solution.

MIG/MAG and TIG welding

Marcel Besselink, Sales Director at Stafier, explains why this welding robot is a good addition to their machine park. “At Stafier we supply various components, which can consist of many types of material. All these different products can also be welded in various ways. The new welding robot installation offers the possibility to weld both MIG/MAG and TIG, with or without cold wire feed. It is now even possible to apply both processes to one product using the automatic torch change system, which allows people to change without intervention between a MIG/MAG and TIG torch, including changing the (welding) parameters associated with the selected welding process.”

More efficiency and quality

“With this new sophisticated welding robot system, we are able to work more efficiently, but also to deliver better quality. Due to the great shortage of workers and especially professional welders, it is increasingly difficult to deliver enough production with good quality. This welding robot installation offers the solution. The quality and production speed are increasing. Partly because of this, our staff can invest more time to tackle other steps in the production process.

The robot does not serve as a replacement for employees, but above all offers a valuable addition. After all, much of our welding work remains manual craftsmanship.”

Can’t wait

It is obvious. Stafier is very happy with this new addition to the machine park. The welding robot will arrive in September 2023. At Stafier they are looking forward to it.
