We can now measure, store and analyze up to 7.5 million weld sessions per day. By automating functions that were once done manually, a shop can save countless hours and provide real transparency into their drivers of productivity, quality and cost control.
By providing archived data that can be used to lower costs, a welding information management system helps improve the productivity and quality gains offered by automation. This technology helps shops make the most out of their investment in welding automation, increase their competitiveness in the marketplace, and improve their profitability.
Pipe shops now use electronic dashboards to replace pieces of paper that once traveled with spool joints across the floor and through the weld testing process.
To increase their capacity and meet regulatory and customer demands, Senesco Marine uses a PEMA flexible hi-tech twin robot welding gantry automation system for welding double bottoms and subassemblies.
The robot programmers at Groupe Gravel drastically reduce weld programming time and effort with Robotmaster software that generates robot control code directly from CAD/CAM.
In recognition of National Robotics Week, students toured their facility to learn about industrial robotics and many related career path opportunities.
As their new chief executive officer, Jaakko Heikonen leads their business growth strategy.
Partnerships are developing dedicated curricula and tools to deliver real-world industrial experiences in a classroom environment.
Increased speed. Higher quality welds. Reduced errors. These are only a few of the many reasons why more shops want to automate work throughout the welding process. Here are some of the latest systems they should consider.
ABB Robotics introduces the flexible, compact and modular IRBT 2005 medium track motion platform for automated robotic welding, and the IRB 2600ID integrated dress pack robot with an extended reach and heavy payload that is ideal for arc welding.
The ArcWorld C-30 system from Yaskawa Motoman includes a six-axis MA1440 arc welding robot, DX200 controller with menu-driven arc welding application software, and integrated welding package.
