Kat Flexible Track Travel Carriage System

Kat Flexible Track Travel Carriage System

  • Programmable
  • Low Voltage
  • Variable Speed

The Kat Carriage Auto-Weld enables a wide variety of automated welding cycles that can be
repeatedly performed along any plane. The advanced Auto-Weld control monitors, via distance
travelled, and responds to limit switches mounted on the Kat which in turn respond to
adjustable activators mounted at appropriate positions on the Kat Track.
Travel direction/speed and length of travel path are synchronized with precise weld start and
weld stop settings. By combining different control settings and limit switch activator positions,
a wide variety of welding cycles can be repeatedly performed. The Kat Auto-Weld Combination
is ideal for stitch welding and seam welding applications where repeatability and accuracy are
desired. The reliability and precision of this automated welding system reduces cost, adds
efficiency and improves quality.
This unit is designed for operation on curved surfaces as the flexible track can be positioned
to follow the contour of the work piece. The self-aligning wheel system of the carriage grips the
top and bottom of the track, enabling it to travel along any plane. The adjustable wheel
assembly keeps the carriage snug to the track, while allowing it to be easily mounted and
removed from the track at any point. The positive drive of the “KAT” is obtained from a uniquely
designed sprocket that engages with slots in the track, driven by a low voltage permanent
magnet motor and gear-head power unit assembly.
