The ArcBot -Cobot welding package is a recent game changer, a testament to Cloos’ innovation. This package minimizes programming complexities, making it user-friendly and adaptable to various products. The market’s enthusiastic response underlines the package’s potential to revolutionize the automation arena.

The company’s exceptional German engineering heritage, spanning over a century, assures qualityand reliability that few can match. Numerous instances of Cloos robotic welding systems functioning perfectly in India for over 30 years stand as a testament to their commitment.

Quality extends beyond products to service and support. Cloos India boasts a robust stock of spares and consumables in Pune, ensuring swift nationwide deliveries within 48 hours. The service team is strategically placed across customer locations, working diligently to provide seamless assistance. The company’s commitment to growth is evident in the doubled service engineer workforce and comprehensive training programs.

Case Study

In early 2021, Cloos India received an inquiry from a renowned global manufacturer of construction and mining equipment based in Chennai. The inquiry pertained to welding a substantial complete mainframe weighing approximately 17 tons. Notably, the customer had previously employed a robotic system for the same product, but expressed dissatisfaction with its performance.

Cloos’ technical sales team meticulously analyzed the issue and made a commitment to rectify it through a fully customised system design and adaptive welding technology. Presently, Cloos India takes pride in sharing that within just two years, they successfully delivered three similar systems to the customer, underscoring the trust they have garnered in the Indian industry.

Driven by current market demand, several customers opted for integrated systems from local suppliers. However, it became evident that these systems fell short of delivering the promised outcomes, lacking a sense of final accountability. In response, Cloos India took on special projects to transform such systems into productive ones. Adding to their accomplishments, Cloos India recently secured the contract for the first welding robotic system designed for shipyards. They were the sole entity to meet the stringent technical requirements, a testament to their expertise. With over a century of experience, Cloos India takes pride in being a comprehensive solution provider that supports the industry effectively.

A message for the industry

To industry leaders contemplating entry into automated welding production, Cloos India offers a resounding invitation. Reach out to their technical sales team with product details and welding requirements, and rest assured of a partnership dedicated to welding quality, training, and unwavering support. Cloos’ reputation as a reliable single-source supplier remains steadfast. It is poised to drive the industry into a future of automated excellence.
