November 16, 2017 – Rolling Meadows, IL – Panasonic welding technologies generated great interest among fabricators attending the company’s Fabtech exhibition at McCormick Place in Chicago on November 6–9, 2017.
The booth theme One Source, One Responsibility™, underlining the fact that all the components that comprise the total solutions exhibited are Panasonic products resonated with fabricators attending the show. According to Ken Dobashi, Group Manager, Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America, “Customers were delighted to see that full integration is built into our solutions and that there’s only one number they need to call for support. Being the single point of contact differentiates Panasonic in this industry where it is typical to have numerous vendors and integrators involved in a system, a circumstance that often inhibits quick and effective resolution of customers’ welding challenges.”
The exhibit featured LAPRISS™ (Laser Processing Robot Integrated System Solution), a new laser welding solution, evolutionary TAWERS™ (The Arc Welding Robot System) processes including SP-MAG™, HD-Pulse™, ACTIVE™, and Zi-ACTIVE™. A new, small, TS-series robot also made its debut in North America.
Mr. Dobashi continued, “Manufacturers were impressed with the very low spatter generated by our technologies because they create efficiencies in production and labor while increasing their profit per piece.” The nimble, 4.5kg laser trepanning head of the LAPRISS solution impressed attendees as well the new small robot that delivers industry-leading 540° per second speed and 8kg payload. Panasonic robots were also highlighted in several other booths at Fabtech including exhibits fielded by Miller, Praxair, Airgas, and ALM.
