Because of its low cost and ease of use, laser touch sense is quickly growing in popularity to locate weld joints and parts that are moving in location relative from one part to the next.
The speed you really need to weld is all about how fast in seconds per year you can weld the parts. That is the first step in properly selecting which high speed welding process you want to use. Here are some other considerations.
Though many might argue that the progression of robotic welding technology has always focused on profit, Heath Suraba of Lincoln Electric explains why you must have quality before you can realize profit.
This examination of Tandem MIG shows how it extends the welding productivity range beyond that possible with conventional single-wire processes.
Heath Suraba of Lincoln Electric explains what should be considered when choosing.
Though this simple tool does some serious grunt work, most robot users do not put enough thought or care into selecting what welding torch they will use for the rest of their robot’s life.
The traditional ROI focused on robots as a direct replacement for people. But many fabricators now investing in automation with welding robots eventually hire more people too. What is going on?
Many welders are still not aware that it is now possible to combine and capture all the information associated with their welding operation into one simple interface – their power source. This is the most advanced way to approach data acquisition and production monitoring in the welding industry.
Heath Suraba of Lincoln Electric shares some tips on how to see the best return from your vision investment.
Weld fixtures not repeatable? Inconsistent weld joints? Robots can now automatically adapt to solve these issues and more.
