Cowl Crossbar Assembly Line

Metal Forming Machines and Robotic Welding Jigs & Fixtures

The Cowl Crossbar Assembly Line performs sub-assembly processes, piercing operations on the main pipe, and welding of the sub-assembled parts to the main pipe.

Main Pipe CO2 Welding

This station welds two main pipes together using a rotating CO2 welding torch.

Radius Welding of Main Pipes

Sub-Assembly Forming

Depending on the cowl shapes and welding sections, the line is divided into sub-assembly stations for further processing.

Radius Welding of Main Pipes

Main Assembly Welding

This station welds sub-assembled parts together to make a complete cowl. Based on the cowl shape, welding segment and cycle time, it can be further divided into different processes.

Welding Inspection

After the main assembly welding process, an operator checks the welding quality and fixes any areas that require manual welding.

Robotic Welding Station | Compact Design

The welding booth comes with jigs, robots, safety curtains, safety sensors and a cat walk. It is designed to minimize the floor space used. The robot, welding controller and electric panels are mounted on top of the frame and can be accessed using a cat walk. The welding wire box is located at the bottom of the welding booth for safety and to minimize floor space.
