Though robotic welding has been in practice for many years, many manufacturers shied away from welding aluminum parts with robots because of the high failure rate that existed in early attempts. These issues caused problems in the early 2000s for the robotics industry when the automotive industry began using more and more aluminum alloys in the production processes. Thankfully, those issues are now nearly non-existent, as long as the robotic system is maintained correctly.
Manufacturers need to be careful when selecting each part of their aluminum welding robotic system. If the wire drive or the delivery system are off, it could completely ruin the welding process on aluminum work pieces, costing extra money and wasting materials. That is why it is important to work with a robotics integrator like RobotWorx if you are not familiar with these types of systems, or robotics as a whole.
The technicians and engineers at RobotWorx are highly trained and know all of pros and cons that come with trying to weld aluminum with robots. They can make sure that your system has a weld drive is tightly coupled and that the delivery system is free of resistance, two things that are crucial to a successful welding process.
