Completely new concept for robot weld guns: the galaxy®GUN
True to the motto “Better is the enemy of just good”, at NIMAK we never just rest on our laurels. Rather, we are constantly developing and searching for new solutions in order to better address the requirements placed on modern production. Just like the new NIMAK robot gun, the galaxy®GUN.
The core component of the galaxy®GUN is the Galaxie®-motor gear unit from WITTENSTEIN. This innovative drive system, awarded with the Hermes Award 2015 and winner of the German Business Innovation Award, achieves up to 170 % more maximum torque than other gear classes of a comparable size. That means high performances can be achieved that conventional drives simply cannot reach. Based on this innovative drive technology, with the galaxy®GUN we developed a completely new welding gun system. Basically unsurpassed in simplicity and compactness, it delivers the best welding results in the shortest cycle times.
The gun arms of the galaxy®GUN open and close very quickly and the force generation is faster than with other robot guns which means that significantly reduced cycle times can also be achieved. The low gun weight facilitates dynamic gun handling. The very large gun opening angle is another plus.
High welding quality
The galaxy®GUN achieves very high force precision, ensuring uniformly high welding quality. The integrated force sensor ensures high repeat accuracy; force profiles are implemented. The improved welding results are also supported by the powerful MF transformer (130 or 260 kVA).
The galaxy®GUN especially shows off in the area of demanding joining jobs, for instance in the aluminum environment and everywhere that the shortest-possible cycle times are necessary.
