The Situation: A tooling company was awarded a project to build a robotic welding machine. The end customer, a Tier 1 automotive supplier, supplied a used control panel and 3 used Nachi Robots which they requested to reuse.

The Challenge: With a 12 week timeline the project delivery was extremely tight. The control panel and Robot were originally designed for a different system and were outdated.

The Task: Recondition the Robots and create a new design reusing as much equipment as possible. Create new Robot, PLC and HMI programs to ensure the final system would be user friendly robust.

The Results: The old control panel and robots were seamlessly integrated into the new tooling. The system exceeded the target cycle time and was delivered in time to meet production needs.

Braves Unique Value: Brave has extensive experience with respect to welding systems. All Brave employees are cross trained - our controls engineers, program the PLC, HMI, Robots and Weld Timers. This large skill set allows Brave to complete projects quicker and more cost effective, as the engineers can focus on any piece of the cell that requires attention regardless of the technology.
