Inrotech announced it has received an order of several welding robots developed for vertical multipass welds by the Danish wind tower manufacturer Welcon. The Inrotech-Vertigo will be used during construction of floating foundations for offshore wind turbines.
Inrotech’s automated robot welding solution is specifically designed according to Welcons’ requirements in order to efficiently handle complex welding’s on floating foundations, designed by Stiesdal.
“The design of the Stiesdal floating foundations allow us to use welding robot technologies during the manufacturing process. This will help us making floating foundations ready for serial production which will support the green transition. Our first welding robots from Inrotech was deployed in 2016, and their technology has proven its worth in our production line: without any programming involved, the system works fully automatic and providing welding of high quality,” said Rune Holm, Project Manager, Welcon.
Contrary to seam-tracking or offline programmed solutions, the Inrotech-Vertigo features a fully automated solution for multipass welding of joints in heavy material. Based on a scan of the weldgroove, the weldplanner (WeldLogic) automatically calculates number of passes, location of each pass and welding parameters adjusted according to position and tolerances. Thereby one operator can operate several Inrotech-Vertigo systems at the same time.
“We are honored to continue our strategic cooperation with Welcon,” said Thomas Bøgner, Sales Director of Inrotech. “To enhance robotic welding solutions with Welcon, that supports the development of the renewable industry, is an important step for both parties.”
The Inrotech-Vertigos will be delivered to Welcon autumn 2022.
