VWCO is now an independent mature division of the Valk Welding Group with its own facility in Alblasserdam. Here there is room for a demonstration room and a training centre, among other things. In addition, manufacturer Techman Robot has housed its European office in the same building, which ensures a strong connection between partner and supplier.
The cobots of Techman robot are unique in their kind because of the standard integrated vision system. Cobots are relatively inexpensive, can be used in a plug & produce way, have user-friendly programming and can be used without additional safety features. Cobots are increasingly being integrated in assembly lines, for machine loading and other applications.
With a strong bond with the Valk Welding Group, the integration of cobots with the welding robots of Valk Welding will certainly be strongly pursued. A number of concepts have already been designed for this purpose. This is an extra step in automation within the industrial sector.
