The ArcSafe™ and the NEW ArcSafe-SW manufactured by AMERICAN WELDQUIP provides the maximum collision protection in robotic applications.
The ArcSafe utilizes an integrated switch designed to prevent damage to the robotic end of arm equipment and/or tooling. In the event of a “crash” situation with the end of arm equipment the switch activates the E-Stop circuit, thus stopping the robot movement.
The NEW ArcSafe-SW is specifically designed for use in robotic applications where the crash protection is integrated into the robotic software package. Most integrated robotic collision detection software systems take time to come to a complete stop – especially with high speed movements. This is where the ArcSafe-SW offers additional protection over solid mount type devices.
The built-in spring deflection feature allows the ArcSafe-SW to deflect the end of arm equipment in the event of a crash. This additional safe guard provides the extra protection required to reduce or eliminate bent goosenecks, cracked insulating disks, and damaged tooling.
The ArcSafe and ArcSafe-SW models are an inexpensive investment to protect equipment, tooling, reduce or eliminate expensive downtime and maintenance issues.
