Self-Integrating a Robotic Welding System

To stay competitive, many shops must choose between building a robotic workcell or buying a turnkey system. DIY robotic integration is possible, but certain critical factors should be considered because the end user assumes greater responsibility and acquires more project risk. There is much to know and manage, from process welding requirements and robotic cell design to tooling requirements and system documentation.

Don’t Spec a Welding System Until You’ve Done This

While increasing throughput, improving product quality, dealing with labor shortage and right-sizing a robotic cell are valid factors to consider when pricing out a system, the best designed system can still miss the mark. You should really pay more attention to these two factors before diving too deep into cell design and component specifications.
