Experts predict that in North America alone, over 10,000 kilometers of new pipeline will be laid per year by 2020. And most of that will be spiral pipes. Tuberías Procarsa, one of the leading manufacturers of steel pipe in Latin America, is equipped for this trend: the company with headquarters in Monclova (Mexico) has put a spiral pipe plant from Schuler into operation and used it to produce large-diameter pipes.
A great deal of practice and forward-looking technology point FANUC to “Schweißen & Schneiden” [Welding & Cutting] in Düsseldorf 2017 (Hall 13, Stand B31). The selection of robot cells for different welding applications, the presentation of combinations of fibre lasers and robots as well as the introductory package for welding training demonstrate practical relevance and technological expertise.
The global market situation for sheet metal manufacturing has changed significantly in the last few years. Today’s challenges are the constantly changing lot sizes, a higher number of individual assembly requests, the ever increasing quality requirements and a wider range of materials and thicknesses to process. Additionally, in order to stay relevant on the market, these challenges must be faced quickly and at the lowest price possible.
