The final acceptance of robotic welding stations at HSW S.A. was completed. Thus, the company completed the assembly of advanced automation lines producing the highest quality industrial production. It puts HSW S.A. among the leading manufacturers of armored vehicles in the scope of executive capabilities of this type of construction for the Polish army and the world.
In April current year Huta Stalowa Wola S.A. has started implementing the most modern technologies currently available in the world of automatic welding of bodies and chassis for combat vehicles.
Implementation of a universal robotic station for welding tower systems for Krab, Rak, ZSSW, as well as chassis systems M120G, WD, BWP, will allow to obtain maximum quality and repeatability and to increase the efficiency of welding work. All armored plate assemblies were previously welded using the traditional method (manually) and modern welding equipment. The use of an intelligent system in robotic welding applications will guarantee the improvement of quality standards, as well as ensure the maintenance of high quality products. It will also affect the timely implementation of programs implemented as part of the process of technical modernization of the Polish Armed Forces. The company’s management expects that the new investment will increase the potential export opportunities and will develop the company. The value of this investment was over 6.6 million PLN.
The technological line is an investment project that builds the competitive advantage of HSW. Producers who are unable to meet the quality expectations of customers are systematically disappearing from the market. One of the most effective and increasingly popular ways to improve the quality of processes is their automation. Such a modern approach to production guarantees improvement of above all quality standards and measurable benefits resulting from this – emphasizes Bartłomiej Zając, p.o. President of the Board, General Director HSW S.A.
We cordially invite you to watch a movie showing the construction of a new hall, where the most modern welding robots are located:
