May 5, 2021

The new Fab-Pak OmniClean all-in-one robotic grinding cell from Lincoln Electric and 3M simplifies pre- and post-weld grinding for small- and medium-size parts without the added time and expense of building and installing a custom cell.

Ideal for general metal fabrication in low-mix, high-volume job-shop industries, this turnkey system is backed by Lincoln Electric Automation’s robotic integration expertise and 3M’s world-class abrasives and application engineering support.

The Fab-Pak OmniClean grinding cell, available with a 3HP or 5HP 3M™ Active Compliant Tool, comes packaged with everything needed to deliver consistent weld removal by grinding parts robotically. The single station Headstock/Tailstock system includes a FANUC® robot equipped with a 3M Servo Rotary Tool that ensures consistent speed at varying force loads and built-in, tool-changing functionality.

The 3M Active Compliant Tool applies the right amount of force for optimal grinding performance for specific applications and required finishes. Both of these features are designed to optimize performance of included 3M abrasives for productivity and part consistency. Each cell comes with an abrasives starter pack with the choice of 3M Cubitron™ II Fibre or Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning discs. Both are designed to quickly remove and clean welds.

The Fab-Pak OmniClean grinding cell requires minimal assembly, installation and setup, thanks to its single system base design. The cell also features a fully integrated software package to adjust parameters and maintain safety features of the active compliance device.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
