Welding with a robotic arm is an example of robotic welding. A programmable mechanical arm automates the welding process by heating metal wire with an integrated torch tool.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER ADVANCED ROBOTIC WELDING?

Regardless of the amount, an advanced robotic welding system lowers costs and improves quality. It also enhances worker safety and aids engineers in developing more creative product designs.

NO MINIMUM ORDER SIZE

Robots are adaptable devices that may be readily reprogrammed and require little tooling. That means there’s minimal setup, making robotic welding systems suitable for small volumes of production. Robotic welding also saves money on complicated one-offs, since the programming costs are offset by faster welding and a reduced risk of scrap. There is more space for production because fewer components are required to set up the automated welding machine.

BENEFITS

Welders are not required to work at high speeds or in a fast and consistent manner. They can reach difficult-to-reach places, never grow weary, and never make mistakes. These factors together indicate robotic welding systems:

It can weld any type of metal without the need for special equipment. It is also capable of welding stainless steel, aluminium, mild steel, and others.

Avoiding blunders can help you improve your yields. This eliminates waste and sacrificial or test pieces while also saving money and lowering costs — especially on complex, high-value projects.

Increase customer satisfaction by improving delivery schedule adherence since there are no shortages, which ensures that every order is fully completed and delivered on time.

Lower per-piece consumption of consumables like gas and wire because it moves faster while depositing only the minimum amount of metal needed.

Weld quality may be improved, and downstream inspection time reduced by increasing confidence in weld quality.

Provides a human welder with the ability to create more inventive items because of restricted access or orientation.

Reduce human exposure to fumes, weld splatter, and flash by eliminating these three hazards. (Another cost-cutting measure is the reduction in need for personal protective equipment.)

Custom – Robotic positioner weld cells

Allow a positioning robot to handle the monotonous work of loading and unloading so you may reallocate human employees to quality-related responsibilities. This change lowers manufacturing costs, improves repeatability in quality, and reduces the risk of injury. It’s a safer, more efficient approach to store items, including big, hefty components

  1. The time required to manually load/unload was reduced substantially.
  2. There is no need for an overhead helper.
  3. For every part, the gripper might be changed automatically
  4. Typically, lower cost for large weldment
  5. Material can be readily transferred between production lines, minimizing material handling in both up and downstream processes.

Custom – Fixtureless weld cells

Combine handling robots with welding machines to eliminate the need for an operator to load and unload specific fixtures used in traditional weld cells.

Simpler, more cost-effective solutions are available. Use a lower-maintenance design that uses fewer materials and takes up less space. Switching to all-plastic construction will save money in the long run by minimizing inventory and processing expenses.

ARC WELDING ROBOTIC APPLICATIONS

WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU’RE A ROBOTIC WELDER?

With an articulated mechanical arm outfitted with a torch tool, a robotic welder quickly and securely completes welding operations using a movable arm. Robotic welders increase safety and speed while adding precision by keeping operators nearby but away from the high-heat location of the weld. They also produce better welding jobs than humans.

WHAT ARE ARC WELDING MACHINES?

Arc welding robots are often equipped with a programmable, articulated arm that may provide up to six-axis motion and a torch tool, allowing the device to execute a variety of arc welding operations quickly and safely for various components and assemblies. Welding automation includes integrated wire feeders and a small-footprint design to increase your available area while also introducing
