Auto Path Programming
CAR-W is auto path planning software. CAR-W embed the weld path data in the CAD model and the parameters are automatically pulled from a database based on robot constraints and weld position.
Programs contain all required welding expertise including:
- weld parameters
- torch angles
- weave data
- touch sensing/TAST
SIGNIFICANT TIME SAVINGS
With CAR-W, you can forget about hours of time consuming programming. Now all you have to do is download the part CAD model and CAR-W automatically generates the weld paths It’s that simple.
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 INTEGRATES 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. CAR-W is a great solution for industries with a high mix of parts and low volume.
