Federal Mogul Laser Welder
 

Federal Mogul South Africa approached MSG Systems with a requirement to change their production method from conventional spot welding of multilayered metal gaskets to robotic laser welding. We developed a robotic system to replace the old conventional production method.

The Old Spot Welding method had a cycle time of 55 seconds , utilising the high speed ABB IRB 140 robot system combined with a laser welder the cycle time was reduced to 12 seconds. A Turntable was utilised to ensure the operator is never exposed to the laser beam. The System was designed manufactured commissioned and installed in South Africa
