How exactly does one orchestrate the movements of a welding robot arm, welding torch, and positioner? What about adjusting wire feeders, power sources and inputting multiple welding commands? With RobotWorx' free customer training, welding robot programming doesn't have to remain a mystery. We offer one-on-one training to all our robotic welding system customers.

When people think about welding, KUKA may be one of the first names they think of because it has been around so long. KUKA has been in the welding business for over 100 years, so it makes sense that they would eventually transfer that knowledge to the robotics industry. The history of KUKA welding robots is one that is over 40 years old, but it is a rich history indeed. In 1971, KUKA became the first company to incorporate robots into a welding system.

In the 1960s, the Unimate robot introduced robotic welding to the world. By the 1970s, several companies, including Motoman Robotics, were beginning to develop their own version of the welding robot. The history of Motoman welding robots is rich and filled with several models and innovations that have continued to improve over these last 30+ years. The first Motoman robotic welder was introduced to the world in 1977. This robot was called the Motoman-L10.

Welding small parts has always been a challenge for manufacturers, whether they are using human welders or robotic welders. FANUC has taken on the task of building a great pulsed MIG welding robot that will be able to not only weld small parts, but also be able to do it cleaner than other robots on the market today, by having an application that is almost spatter-free.

KUKA Robotics has been producing high quality robotic systems for decades. While KUKA robots are well known for their welding capabilities, they have robots that perform several different functions, including material handling, material removal, and even bonding. KUKA bonding robots improve the overall functionality of the line, especially when a conversion is necessary.

ABB Robotics has a forty year history in the industrial welding robot business. That history has shown the market some of the most durable, high-quality and reliable robotic welders – welders that are able to stand the test of time. But, the history of ABB welding robots did not start out that way.  The beginnings of the welding line for ABB were actually very humble.

Welding has been around for more than a century. As soon as humans started to realize they could use pressure and electric to force work pieces together, welding was born. And, in the 1960s, welding robots became a reality with the first spot welding robot – the Unimate. The Unimate was a simple spherical robot that had only three axes, but opened up the way for all of the six-axis welding robots that would come a decade or so later.

Sick of having to constantly replace cables and wiring? Are you looking for a spot welding robot that increases the life of the cables, while also being fast and accurate? Then you should take a look at the Motoman “Expert Spot” welding robot series. These robots have many of the same benefits as other spot welding robots, while also being kind on your budget. Over the lifetime of a robot, wiring and cables can become worn, and need to be replaced on a regular basis.

Collaboration has always been an important part of the industrial manufacturing process – One person hands of something to another person, or they work together to assemble a product. This kind of collaboration still exists today with in manufacturing, but now, many times the collaboration is robot and human or even robot and robot, especially when it comes to welding robots. There are many ways that two robots can collaborate on a welding project.
