By sending power over optical fiber, YAG laser welding enables the flexible welding and cutting of workpieces in a wide variety of forms. In particular, automobile bodies can be welded together utilizing the benefits of line junctions, i.e., greater strength and rigidity of the junctions and thinner plates.
This is a jig-less arc welding system that uses two robots in combination to weld huge workpieces. In automobile manufacture lines, it can be used to perform the final welding of brackets temporarily welded to rear axles.

These robots allow the automated arc welding of auger housings, which are extremely large workpieces. They weld and reinforce the wings and cutting rings in the manufacture of ribbon-screw augers, which form the central parts of snowplows.
After the reflectors of automobile headlamps are processed with metal plating, they are sprayed with ultraviolet curing paint using an HVLP air spray gun. When the workpiece is set at the end of one of the shuttles and the button is pressed, the shuttle moves to the painting position. While painting is in progress, another workpiece for painting is set at the other shuttle. When the painting program is terminated, the next workpiece moves to the painting stage automatically with no time lack.
Robotic Accessories
BL-Autotec products are No. 1 robotic accessories in Japan. The Accessories for robotic applications ranging from Quick change tools, RCC Compliances, Centering & Locking device for end effectors, Rotary joints with pneumatic & electrical supply, Robotic Deburring tools with compliance, overload protection safety joints.
This is a deburring system that, in order to utilize space efficiently, uses Kawasaki's compact FS06. The FS06 uses an electric tool to eliminate the casting burrs on intricate knuckle steering units, which are held by a jig, from above, diagonally, or in any other direction.
This system uses an endless belt grinder and a reciprocal file called "super hand" to perform deburring for con-rods.
This robot enables clutch assembly, something that had been considered impossible in the past. Until now, the experience of skilled workers had been irreplaceable in the assembly of clutches as parts for automobile drive transmission; these workers can now be replaced by robots. This technology is attracting the attention of automobile manufacturers from around the world. Kawasaki's robot removes workpieces from the molding machine, and performs all the work in the process, such as the gate cut, assembly, and output. All the work is performed precisely and speedily under full robot control with no sequencers.
