1. General Description of Transformer Tank robot welding manipulator
1). The base frame is made from steel construction. 2). The hydraulic expanding head can easily be adjusted for different tank sizes and the clamps for top frame and tank bottom are included. A small hydraulic power pack is mounted at the rear. 3).The clamp arms for the different tank sizes are exchangeable and clamped hydraulically. 4sets are included to cover the complete tank range 4). The four front clamping arms form the fixed datum point, whilst the rear ones are adjusted according to the tank height by means of a measuring tape.
2. Tank Inside Dimensions
Min (W) 285mm to 900 mm
Max (L) 600mm to1500mm.
3. Operation of Transformer Tank robot welding manipulator
1). In order to move the tank into the desired working position, the manipulator can be rotated around the axis by 360 degree by means of a rotary gear electric motor and can be locked in the desired position.
2). Operator push buttons are conveniently mounted in a small box connected by flexible cable. 3). The Tank can be tack welded using MIG welding torch. It is recommended having tack welded the tank to finish weld all seams while the tank is still on the manipulator. 4). The Setting up of frame, bottom and corrugated panels are carried out using a pillar crane and the factory crane is used to remove the finished welded tank. 5). Removal of the finished welded tank is done by the factory crane; setting up of frame, bottom and corrugated walls is done via jib crane.
