In this application, a portal robot was successfully combined with a plasma cutter. Plasma, an electrically conductive gas, burns at about 30,000 degrees and processes workpieces with the resulting arc. Despite these challenging conditions, the portal robot guides the cutter smoothly over the workpiece and shapes it precisely as desired.
The igus portal robot, the largest model of the manufacturer with dimensions of 2000x2000x1000 mm, offers a variety of customization options. It can be equipped with various end effectors, camera systems, and accessories. It is available in a basic version without control as well as in three other variants with control.
