MACSTUD3D

The MACStud3d (MESH Automation Cell for stud welding) is a professional-grade, pre-engineered, robotics-based flexible automation cell.   The MACStud3d is designed for robotic stud welding allowing for studs to be welded onto three-dimensional surfaces or multiple planes.   The pre-engineered features and options make for a great value with quick deliveries, while also allowing for easy size and layout customization.

This third generation of design has been fine-tuned to provide a service life greater than 15 years,  unparalleled fit and finish,  modern globally available hardware,  precision designs for product repeatability and low process variability and features like our available parametric programming that allow for push-button changeovers and batch size of one processing.

MESH has partnered with a variety of well-known industry leaders to outfit the MACStud3d with the following top of the line Stud Welding specific components and features:

Stud Welding Power Supplies and stud guns for capacitor discharge and drawn arc HBS and Nelson
