Robotic welding facilities can now meet air quality regulations without losing too much floor space. RoboVent, the leading manufacturer of clean air technologies, created RoboVent Spire® to address the needs of robotic welding operations where space is at a premium.
Spire was specifically designed to complement the most common robotic welding applications used in the automotive industry, though it can be applied to many other industries as well. “For our automotive parts suppliers, floor space costs money,” explains RoboVent General Manager Jim Reid. “Reducing the footprint of the dust collector allows them to maximize the productivity of their factory lines. We created Spire to deliver powerful dust collection in the smallest footprint possible.”
Spire is a flexible, cost-effective alternative to centralized ducted systems. Each Spire unit provides filtration for an individual welding cell. It’s a powerful system that can keep up with the heavy demands of robotic welding in a high-production factory.
ï‚· Small footprint: The floor-saving design takes up about the same amount of space as a wire barrel.
ï‚· Built-in spark arrestance: RoboVent’s propriety Delta3® spark arrestance system comes standard with every unit for superior fire safety.
ï‚· Very low maintenance: Everything is easily accessible for fast filter changes and maintenance-no special tools required. The proprietary RoboVent eTell® control system makes maintenance headache-free.
ï‚· Flexible: Since the Spire units have a very small footprint, it’s easy to find space for them. And when the floor configuration needs to be changed, Spire is easy to move right along with the welding cell.
