Pro-Pak® FW

Ferris Wheel System

The Pro-Pak® FW system is designed to keep automotive production lines moving at optimum speed while executing the highest quality welds in the industry. This pre-engineered automated robotic welding cell can handle greater payload capacities and high-speed indexing times to optimize production efficiencies.

The Ferris Wheel system also limits problems associated with downtime and frequent maintenance requirements so you can improve worker safety and increase productivity overall.

  • Greater payload capacities and high-speed indexing times.
  • Offered in 2.0 – 4.0 meter tool bed lengths, with custom lengths available
  • Optional precision wedge lock is recommended for high offset tools or parts
  • Easy integration with most major robot manufacturers
  • Solid panel safety enclosure allows for more efficient fume extraction
  • Modular platform base minimizes installation time
  • Weld ground isolation reduces risk of electrical damage to the positioner or robot controller
  • Robotic positioners are designed for maximum static and dynamic stiffness, reducing air-cut speeds
  • Engineered for high-duty use cycles
  • More consistent weld quality
  • Simplified cable management
  • Weld controller integration
  • Multiple supplier options
  • Ease of installation
  • Seamless re-deployment
  • Compact footprint
  • ANSI/RIA compliant
