Pole position in welding technology: welding chassis components for motorcycles

WELDING CHALLENGEA great deal of dexterity is required in motorcycle frame and exhaust system welding. Manual welding is unavoidable in areas with tube intersections on the frame that the robot just cannot get to. It is important to achieve reliable, constant penetration and with no spatter. On the exhaust system, one millimetre thick stainless steel, structural steel or titanium sheets must be accurately welded. Even the most advanced MIG/MAG power sources cannot stand up to these requirements.
“The TPS/i from Fronius enables us to maintain and extend our leading position in welding technology.” Josef Baier, Performance Systems GmbH
