Using the test laboratory – driving innovations
ABICOR BINZEL is one of the quality and innovation leaders for welding torches and has made a decisive contribution to shaping the world of welding over many years. ABICOR BINZEL is particularly concerned with continuously improving products, relieving the strain on welders, researching into new processes and supporting automated welding with the objective of developing efficiency-enhancing joining technology solutions. For this reason, developers in the ARClab test laboratory work daily on optimizing product solutions and testing new products thoroughly.
Developing manual welding and automated robot welding further
Welding will forever be perform both by hand and automation. For this reason, ABICOR BINZEL tests and develops its products further to adapt them even more closely to manufacturing requirements of today. In addition, ABICOR BINZEL develops customized solutions to individual specifications - putting manufacturers' unique needs first. ABICOR BINZEL vigorously researches the long-term resilience of all products and possibilities for further optimization in the ARClab – the only test laboratory of its kind in the world - at our global headquarters in Germany.
ARClab test laboratory
With the ARClab, ABICOR BINZEL's developers have a state-of-the-art test laboratory available in which extremely different materials, products and processes can be tested. Its equipment includes among other things an internally developed twin test stand for long-term load tests and an oxygen analysis test stand that enables optimization of the oxygen concentration during product development. Apart from this, the ARClab has several state-of-the-art and fully networked industrial robots for application tests in the field of robot welding. High-performance simulation software is used to calculate temperature curves at the torches and cooling circuits realistically and development cycles are reduced considerably.
