This paper describes the TAURO System, a universal system devised to carry a wide range of different types of robots. The name TAURO stands for the Italian equivalent of Robotised Universal Automatic Transfer. The system is up to 40 meters long and is supplied in two versions: portal and linear. The main components are: 1 or 2 tracks below floor level; 1 or more mobile robot carriers; 1 or more welding gun magazines on the carriers; and 1 or more automatic gun change systems (one on each robot). Options include appropriately programmed longitudinal and transverse overhead runways for the automatic handling of workpieces. The TAURO system is an extremely important innovation in the solution of all spot welding problems involving very large pieces and low and very diversified production volumes.
