Whether for manual or automated welding , thin or thick-walled materials , use in a production hall or on a construction site ; the configuration options of QINEO welding power sources from CLOOS are as flexible as the areas of application for welding . The consistently modular platform concept enables individual solutions that can be adapted to user-specific production conditions and objectives .
“ From the power level and operating module to the special equipment , each QINEO is a customised product tailored to the customer ’ s needs ,” explained Björn Fey , who heads product management for welding products at CLOOS . “ Since we manufacture our welding power sources exclusively in Germany and Europe , we can guarantee a maximum quality standard for robust and durable devices .”
CLOOS currently offers three welding power source types . The QINEO StarT MIG / MAG welding power source offers easy entry into the world of modern welding technology . The multi-process welding power source , QINEO NexT , offers strong arc characteristics and the QINEO QuesT now completes the portfolio for high-end TIG applications .
“ The modular design of the QINEO welding power sources enables versatile applications from the basic welding unit for manual welding to the high-tech welding unit for automated robot welding . The three welding power sources are each available in Eco , Master and Premium variants . The Premium variant is suitable for automated and manual highend applications , the Master variant is mainly used for manual applications and the Eco variant was developed especially for manual applications and offers a limited range of functions and welding processes .
The modular system runs through the entire QINEO product portfolio with all main components ( operating modules ; welding torches ; wire drives ; water coolers and carriages ). Users can select individual components , tailored to their respective requirements , and combine them within the product lines .
“ Our customers also benefit from a more controllable spare parts supply due to many common parts in our different welding power sources ,” explained Fey . “ This allows us to ensure ideal part supply and minimise downtimes in production .”
QINEO welding power sources can be equipped with common industrial interfaces , such as OPC-UA , and other optional functions . With Weld-Process-Monitoring ( WPM ), users can also control the quality of their welding production .
“ The C-Gate IoT platform digitisation platform enables comprehensive online monitoring of welding power sources . All welding power sources in the QINEO NexT , StarT and QuesT series can be networked to record manufacturing and production data ,” concluded CLOOS . n
