PANASONIC ANNOUNCES NEW PA-55 PRE-ENGINEERED WELDING CELL
December 2007 - Buffalo Grove, IL -
Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America (PFSA) has expanded its line of
pre-engineered PerformArc welding cells with the addition of the highly productive PA-55.
The PA-55 system has an extremely high output to investment ratio, making it suitable
for first time automation users as well as large companies automating low-volume projects.
In fact, it can pay for itself even if used only two days a week. The PA-55, like other
PerformArc systems, typically produces as much as 3 manual welders while delivering
consistent weld quality.
Its small footprint allows easy placement in tight spaces. The system can accept a
payload of up to 250 lbs per side and welds typical part sizes that include 12" x 53",
18" x 45", and 24" x 30". A platen design provides repeatable fixture locating when multiple
fixtures are to be exchanged on the same work-cell. The PA-55 comes standard with a Panasonic
6-axis robot, a Panasonic inverter welder with artificially intelligent waveform control, and a
Like the rest of the PerformArc family, the PA-55 comes pre-wired and pre-assembled for
fast installation and relocation. Full system controls, diagnostics, and programming
capabilities are managed by the color teach pendant, running Windows CE to flatten the
learning curve. Best of all, the whole system is supported by one vendor: Panasonic.
PerformArc systems, along with TAWERS robots, are part of Panasonic's constantly
evolving product line built on a core foundation of Panasonic robots, servo positioners
and arc welding technology.
Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America, a North American source for electronic assembly equipment (SMT), software and technical support, provides total business systems solutions for electronic semiconductor and packaging companies in the global marketplace through one provider. PFSA is also a premier source for robotic and manual arc welding equipment to distributors, system integrators and end users.
