WOLFCELL CONTROL

Wolf Robotics WolfCell™ Control is a easy-to-use graphical user interface. The intuitive, straightforward interface displays provides operator control of normal production functions, robotic arc welding cell operation, and the welding process.

Product Highlights

  • System diagnostics
  • Reporting
  • Custom graphics for each system layout
  • Cell status indicator
  • Cycle time tracking & part counter
  • Solid state hardware & ethernet communications
  • Configurable user profiles & password protected user traceability

Comprehensive System Diagnostics

A graphical view of all cell components provides quick and easy reference to problem areas. The system status page allows visual identification of critical components and support drill-down access to assembly drawings, spare parts, electrical schematics, and B.O.M.’s for diagnostics and service.

  • Access to system documentation
  • IO listing with real-time status
  • Simplified troubleshooting
  • Recommended spare parts list

Easy Access to Real-Time Reporting

The WolfCell Controller reports are now compatible with laptop and mobile phones with full access to:

  • OEE, Downtime, and TPM reports
  • “4-UP” (monthly OEE, daily downtime, last week’s biggest losses, last month’s biggest losses)
  • Part Report (individual parts, process, non-process, etc.)
  • Advanced Part Report (by part model)

The WolfCell Control is available in multilingual displays(English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.)

COMPUTER AIDED ROBOTIC – WELDING (CAR-W)

Computer Aided Robotic Welding (CAR–W™) is the latest in automated robotic path planning software from Wolf Robotics. Following the same principles as CAD/CAM software for CNC machining, robotic welding programs are automatically generated from CAD models. This CAD/CAR exchange virtually eliminates manual and off-line programming, and vastly reduces required training.

CAR-W BENEFITS

SIGNIFICANT TIME SAVINGS

Now, you can forget about hours of time consuming programming. With CAR-W, weld programs are automatically generated allowing you to download and start welding.

TRULY FLEXIBLE, COLLISION FREE AUTOMATION

New design or product configuration? No problem. Other robotic welding solutions for shipbuilding can only handle a set of manually pre-defined part configurations. This limits the product categories that can be welded and drives costly programming and “software updates.”

CAR-W knows your part geometry, your weld call-outs, and your weld procedures. As long as the part allows access, CAR-W automatically plans the robot motion for each weld while navigating obstacles, pushing into tight corners, avoiding cable wrap-up, and maintaining proper weld gun angles.

QUALIFIED WELD PROCEDURES

CAR-W puts you in control. A weld procedure database secures your process information and makes qualified procedures available for use in automatic CAR-W program generation. Simple, intuitive tools allow you to easily upgrade your manual welding procedures to an all-digital, robot-class format, capturing the process knowledge from your workforce and preserving it for the future.

AMERICAN INGENUITY & U.S. BASED SUPPORT

Your investment is 100% designed, manufactured and backed by a team of experts with over a century of welding and automation experience, based right here in the U.S.A.

FULLY INTEGATES WITH EXISTING PRODUCTION

CAR-W enables welding automation for applications previously thought to be too complex. Adding a CAR-W enabled system can automate challenging welding tasks including mid-to-late stages of panel production, and intricate sub-assemblies.

WOLFARC

WolfArc™ enables users to activate different weld modes and configure the welds for use with a robot. This system also provides feedback on weld quality, thereby increasing the overall quality of production. Weld configurations are made even easier with mobile device usability.

WolfArc increases efficiency and makes for faster programming with seamless integration between the robot and welder.

Product Highlights

  • Weld parameter visual explanations
  • Graphical data editor
  • Weld library with weld templates
  • System diagnostics
  • Programmer friendly user interface
  • Peripheral equipment control
  • Service functions

CALCULATIVE ADAPTIVE

Wolf Robotics has developed software solution that gives the robot the ability to detect any deviation in a cross-section  of a welded groove joint. The robot takes the deviation information and adapts the weld process (both travel speed and weave amplitude) to maintain constant volume matrix fill.
