Benefits of the FastARC Port Welder

The many benefits of a the FastARC Port Welder robotic cell gives hydraulic cylinder manufacturers and fabricators an instant competitive advantage.

Higher throughput & labor savings

The load/unload process is internal to the welding process. Get more part numbers and parts per shift with the FastARC PW than your current process.

Correct port location

Locating ports on a hydraulic cylinder tube is critical. The FastARC PW puts all port location and welding within robot control. This reduces scrap and rework.

Quick changeover

Utilizing quick change tooling, the FastARC PW can be changed from one part number to another in 2-3 minutes.

Simple part programming/repeatability

The FastARC PW requires NO teach pendant programming. Operators provide part print dimensions to PW's software and the next part is ready to go.


The operator unloads finished weldments and loads raw tubes, port handling is done by the FastARC PW, eliminating exposure to the welding process.

Competitive edge

Higher production in less time means you can keep costs globally competitive.

When Our Customers Succeed, We Succeed
