QINEO welding power sources: Modular platform concept

HAIGER – Whether manual or automated welding, thin or thick-walled materials, use in a production hall or on a construction site – the configuration options of the 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 to the operating module to the special equipment, each QINEO is a customised product tailored to the customer's needs," explains Björn Fey, who heads product management 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 MIG/MAG welding power source QINEO StarT offers an easy entry into the world of modern welding technology with an optimal price-performance ratio. The multiprocess welding power source QINEO NexT convinces with excellent arc characteristics for highest welding quality. The new QINEO QuesT completes the portfolio as a new benchmark 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 the Eco, Master and Premium variants. The Premium variant is optimally suited for automated and manual high-end 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 the individual components individually, tailored to their respective requirements and combine them within the product lines.

"In addition to the application-specific configuration, our customers benefit from a more controllable spare parts supply due to many common parts in our different welding power sources," explains Fey. "This allows us to ensure an ideal parts supply and minimise downtimes in production."

In addition, the QINEO welding power sources can be equipped with common industrial interfaces such as OPC-UA and other optional functions. With the welding data monitoring Weld-Process-Monitoring (WPM), users can optimally control the quality of their welding production. In addition, the digitisation platform C-Gate IoT platform enables comprehensive online monitoring of the welding power sources. All welding power sources of the QINEO series NexT, StarT and QuesT can be networked to record manufacturing and production data.
