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.
While welding automation has been around since almost the beginning of industrial automation itself, the ability for a robot to “see” what it is welding has been around a far shorter period of time. Welding robots use vision, which is a series of cameras attached to the robot, to “see” their work piece of weld path and weld in a more precise, accurate fashion.
Computer-Aided Design and/or Manufacturing, also known as CAD and CAM software, are two important tools when you are building and designing your welding robot system. CAD software allows you to plan out your robot virtually, while CAM software allows you to program your welding robot offline. CAD software for welding robots is necessary in this day and age to keep the price of building a robotic system down.
Friction welding, or friction stir welding as it is commonly called, is a welding process, unlike many on the market today. Unlike welding with consumables that create fumes and use a lot of welding wire, friction welding robots do not require wires, nor do they create fumes. They simply use the heat buildup from friction and pressure to complete their welding process, making it a more environmentally-friendly process.
Robots are some of the best assets to industry today, but they can also be some of the most dangerous pieces of equipment in your shop, if your staff is not properly trained in safety techniques when using them. At the same time, robots like the KUKA flux cored welding robot can also improve the safety level in your shop, by keeping workers away from all of the dangerous fumes, glare and heat of the flux cored welding process. Training is important when integrating any robot into your facility.
Welding is one of the most common robotic applications available in the industry today. The industrial market is fast-paced, and changing every few weeks, days or months, so it is important to have workers trained on the latest additions to your production line as quickly as possible to ensure that your production continues with few interruptions. This is where the Motoman flux cored welding robot comes into play.
FANUC Robotics is one of the top robotics companies on the market today. While FANUC started out with Numerical Control and Computer Numerical Control machines, their welding robots, including their flux cored welding robots, stand out in their industry as some of the best, most productive robots available. When you choose FANUC flux cored welding robots for your flux cored application, you are choosing to ramp up your productivity more than you ever imagined.
So, you have read a lot about welding robots and all of the great benefits they could bring to your company and product line, right? Of course you have! Now, you are in the market to buy a welding robot, but you don’t know the first thing about industrial robots.
ABB Robots have been welding in an industrial setting for many years, and whether it is arc or spot welding, they have always been up for the job. One arc welding application that ABB robots perform is flux cored welding, which uses a consumable, tubular electrode containing flux core and a constant power supply, hence the name, flux cored welding.
One of the biggest trends in the industry today is to learn to work smarter, instead of harder, which is why industrial robot sales have grown exponentially over the years. This is also why versatile robots, and robotic dress packages, are also on the rise. It is nice to have a material handling robot, but what about a material handling robot that can weld? That is where the ABB SpotPack dress package comes into play.
Welding is a robotic application that has been around as long as industrial robots. KUKA, a company that has been producing welders for over 100 years, got into the welding game in the 70s and 80s, and hasn’t looked back. Companies looking for quality arc welding robots should look no further than a KUKA pulsed MIG welding robot. KUKA’s wealth of knowledge in the welding industry has led them to building a durable, strong and reliable pulsed MIG welder.
