Technology

The arc series combines the technically mature and proven arc-welding method with the CAD drawings of the product designers and engineers in a completely new production system.

Either 3 or 5 motion axes offer maximum flexibility in terms of the component volume and enable the additive production of high-quality metal parts.

The integration of an optional milling system into the arc machines ensures the immediate finishing of the parts. The fact that all of the machines include a SIEMENS control unit that has been specifically developed for machine tools is a synonym for easy handling by the operator.

During the design and development phase of the arc series, special emphasis was placed on the following points:

  • easy implementation into the customer’s production process
  • easy operation of the machines

Innovative series features that inspire

  • Process monitoring by camera
  • Access to the machine at the ground level without a threshold through a roll-up door with a working table that can be moved out of the machine for easy loading and unloading by way of a crane
  • Base plate with active cooling
  • Soundproof housing
  • Integrated case ventilation and welding fume extraction system
  • Operator-friendly user interface
  • High-end components of well-known manufacturers

Modular optional equipment

  • Temperature monitoring by an integrated Sensortherm pyrometer
  • arc cooling system for localised cooling with cooling gas
  • Automatic torch cleaning system
  • Water-cooled inert gas cover for oxygen-sensitive materials
