TAL Manufacturing Solutions, a subsidiary of Tata Motors, today announced the launch of its indigenously developed, TAL BRABO Welding Robot. Exhibited for the first time at the Automation Expo from 09 – 12 August 2017 in Mumbai, the TAL BRABO Welding Robot has been developed for welding operations with highly reliable features and ensures utmost safety as it is equipped to seamlessly perform all dangerous actions associated with welding.
Priced at approximately Rs. 8.5 Lakh Welding Robot is cost-effective offering easy-to-use robotic technology that caters to Tier 3 and 4 suppliers. With a reach of 850 mm and payload capacity of 6 kilograms.
Conceptualized to automate welding not only for OEMs but also MSME players, the TAL BRABO Welding Robot has been developed from an industrial user perspective. A complex and dangerous task, welding is associated with many health hazards such as damage to physical heath, serious medical complications due to exposure to fumes and high decibel noise that can potentially destroy the hearing ability of the welder. The design and in-house style of the TAL BRABO Welding Robot addresses all these concerns and performs welding functions consistently and precisely.
Speaking at the launch, Mr. R S Thakur, Non-Executive Director & Chairman – TAL Manufacturing Solutions Ltd., said, "India is a growing market for technology and innovation with a conducive atmosphere for development of automation. Robotics and Automation can revolutionize the industrial scenario and change the way various functions are performed across industries. We take pride in introducing the new TAL BRABO Welding Robot which will offer cost effective and integrated manufacturing solutions in multi discipline capabilities. This innovative product will automate the tedious welding process. Robotic technology is in the nascent stage in India and we aim to create awareness through such innovative product offerings."
Produced in Pune, at the TAL facility, the BRABO Welding robots is backed by a trained and well-equipped System Integrator Network. The plant has an annual capacity of 3000 units, per year The demand for these robots is bound to increase with boost in sectors like Automotive, Light Engineering, Precision Machining, Electronics, Software Testing, Plastics, Logistics, Education, Aerospace and Engineering among others, simplifying industrial manufacturing, improving quality and productivity.
Earlier this year, TAL Manufacturing Solutions launched first Indian conceptualized, designed, and manufactured articulated industrial robot used for varied applications for tasks like pick and placement of materials, assembly of parts etc.
