A provisioning manipulator passes these to the gripper electrode which is able to take up bolts of diameter of up to 8 mm and fix these using its jawelec trode. It then positions the bolton the work piece completely automatically. This guarantees that the bolt is applied to the work piece in the required position and ready for welding.

A fixing pin inside the gripper electrode ensures that the bolt is pressed on correctly. The length of this pin can be adjusted, thus making it possible to handle a wide variety of bolt types without having to change the gripper electrode. The has a power rating of 3 kVA.With a positioning speed of 24 m/min and a cycle frequency of approximately 7s the stud welding machine ensures fast, accurate results.
