The personal safety and abrasive systems divisions of 3M are joining forces to showcase a range of products that work in synergy to maximise results when used in a welding environment. Whether an abrasive wheel or a welding helmet, the overall theme will be to focus on three key shared benefits of the 3M solution: results, speed and safety. The abrasive systems division wil

present products never before seen at MACH including its advanced Cubitron II Range which utilises a precision shaped ceramic abrasive technology as well Scotch-Brite Non-Woven Abrasives. These will be accompanied by Speedglas Welding helmets and the recently launched next generation Adflo Powered Air Respirator from the 3M personal safety division. Visitors to the 3M stand will have a

chance to win the The Welder’s Dream Prize worth more than £2,000. This essential kit comprises premium abrasive products including Cubitron II Fibre Discs and Cut Off Wheels and Speedglas Welding Helmet 9100FX with Adflo Powered Air Respirator.

OPEN MIND has developed a new data format for hyperCAD-S; hyperMILL CAD Template (hmct) allows users to create, save and re-use templates in a meaningful manner. This CAD for CAM users solution will be introduced with demonstrations available from the OPEN MIND UK technical team. The new hyperCAD-S will show how it can improve

processing speeds and user workflow. In hyperCAD-S OPEN MIND has developed its own CAD system that is ideally matched to the CAM system hyperMILL. This CAD solution is specifically designed to address the requirements of NC programmers. Tool and mould making in particular is always associated with

geometries from a variety of sources. To import these reliably, hyperCAD-S incorporates a series of first rate interfaces. The interfaces have now been enhanced for the import of 2D entities, 3D meshes and dimensions as vector graphics by adding a DXF/DWG interface.

ABB will showcase its latest developments in robotic automation with an integrated demonstration cell featuring the IRB 6700, IRB 2600 and IRB 140 robots. The large ABB IRB 6700 features improvements including increased accuracy and speed and the ability to handle heavier payloads up to 235kg which will be increased to 300kg as new variants are added over the next 18 months. It delivers improved energy efficiency with a 15% reduction in power consumption. A dual act between ABB’s IRB 2600

robot and IRB 140 will feature ABB’s MultiMove through a demonstration of coordinated motion control between two robots around a common work object. MultiMove can control up to four robots from one IRC5 controller with a compact drive module added for each additional robot. A welding cell demonstration will incorporate ABB’s IRB 1600 robot with positioner; the built-in second generation of TrueMove and QuickMove substantially improves the path accuracy and cycle time of the robot.
