Use of welding robots
To ensure a particularly high and consistent quality, the smoke tubes of most of our boilers are welded fully automatically by five robot systems. The special robot used in industrial boiler manufacturing at Bosch has many advantages compared to welding robots used in conventional applications. No positioning errors occur due to the fully automatic individual tube scanning operation which requires no tool changes. The robot can be used flexibly in combination with a crane and transported quickly and easily to every boiler. The quality of these weld seams is crucial for the long-term durability of the boiler as the smoke tube weld seams are exposed to high stresses.
