ESAB and Robovent Partner to Deliver High-Performance Robotic Welding Solutions

ESAB recently announced a partnership with RoboVent for the development of high-performance robotic welding solutions. 

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products (Florence, SC) announced a partnership with RoboVent Product Group, Inc. for the development of high-performance robotic welding solutions. RoboVent fume extraction equipment will be featured as part of ESAB’s robotic welding systems, including the new Swift Arc Series of pre-engineered robotic welding cells offered as complete ready-to-weld units. The Swift Arc ML will be the first ESAB welding automation system equipped with RoboVent fume exhaust technology.

RoboVent is a leading provider of ventilation systems for manufacturing applications, including welding, cutting and metalworking; dust and lubricant mist collection; and general ventilation. Its air filtration products are designed to improve production quality and employee safety, and are proven reliable and cost efficient in installations throughout North America.

ESAB will apply RoboVent’s expertise in collecting, filtering and recycling contaminated air to engineer a safer, more efficient welding automation system that ensures protection for both the machine operator and the welding equipment, and reduces production disturbances to improve machine capacity and productivity.

ESAB Swift Arc Transfer (SAT™) is a high productivity MAG process that utilises AristoRod™ non-copper coated wires at travel speeds well beyond the limits of normal spray arc welding.

“RoboVent has built a solid reputation as a manufacturer of high quality fume exhaust equipment offering comprehensive product support. These key factors were pivotal in our decision to partner with RoboVent to further enhance ESAB’s welding automation systems,” said George Learmonth, ESAB’s vice president of automation for North America. “As we expand our efforts in the robotic welding market, RoboVent helps us offer customers better overall automation solutions.”
