Genesis Welding Cells

Genesis Welding Cell Overview

Genesis Systems is consider one of the largest U.S. based robotic welding work cell manufacturer with over 5,000 successful welding cell installations to date. With so many successful work cell installations it is not surprising that they are experts when it comes to designing, building, and installing robotic weld cells. Genesis offers customized or pre-engineered work cells that can be used for a variety of welding applications including: spot welding, laser welding, plasma welding, GMAW, and GTAW. Their pre-engineered weld cells are designed to be paired with either a FANUC robot, such as the Arc Mate 120ic or a Panasonic robot. Genesis also works with other robot manufacturers including Motoman, ABB, and KUKA for more customized options. Genesis pre-engineered weld cells also feature a choice of either a Miller Electric power source, like the Miller Auto-Axcess 450, or a Lincoln Electric power source, such as the Miller Powerwave i400. Genesis offers a wide variety of pre-engineered welding cells with three different lines to choose models from.

Versa Systems

Genesis’ Versa Systems line features their low cost, high performance arc welding cells. The models comprising this line feature a center mounted robot design that allows for full advantage of the robot’s work envelope. Another advantage of a centrally located industrial robot is greater weld access as it is closer to the workpiece being welded. Versa System models have a weight capacity range from 340 kg to 2,267 kg and utilize robots such as the FANUC ArcMate 100ic. These work cells allow for multiple robot configurations for higher productivity. Versa work cells include a welding torch and safety features such as light curtains, gate interlocks, and barriers for complete worker protection.

GenS Systems

Genesis’ GenS Systems are their servo driven welding work cells designed to help manufacturers achieve high productivity. GenS systems are designed to handle medium to high volume productions. These work cells also feature a compact design, making them a perfect welding solution for those with limited floorspace. Despite being compact in size they can still accommodate larger tooling and heavier weight with a range between 225 kg to 1,500 kg. Robots integrated with the GenS Systems can be center, rear, or overhead mounted to allow for greater flexibility and workpiece access. Like the Versa Systems, GenS Systems also come with a safety package and welding torch as standard options.

CRZ Systems

Genesis’ CRZ Systems stands for compact robot zone, and as the name implies, they feature a compact footprint with a narrow profile. Work cells in the CRZ Systems line are designed to help manufacturers simplify their welding process. These work cells can be configured with a single or dual station setup. With these weld cells manufacturers have a choice between either a flat table or trunnion for part positioning. Their weight capacity features a range from 272 kg to 748 kg, which varies based upon part positioner selected. What makes these weld cells so advantageous is their compact design since it allows for multiple cells to be configured next to each other. With multiple welding cells in operation productivity will significantly increase, while also making operations more efficient.
