Automation/Robotics

Automation is the individual use or integrated configuration of computer software, machines or other technologies ranging from fully mechanical systems to fully virtual networks, very simple to intensely complex in functionality, to carry out a task that would typically be done by a human worker. Robotics is a segment of automation involving a machine (robot) capable of making independent movements programmed to perform complex tasks ranging from simple handling of parts to full machine tending, welding, grinding and other operations typically performed by a human worker.

Three Ways to Cut Field Welding Costs

Wireless Interface Control from Miller Electric Mfg.

Walking back and forth to a vehicle to tweak an engine-driven welder/generator’s control panel takes time. Remote control devices increase productivity by putting the ability to make changes in the palm of the operator’s hand.

Four Tools for Even Better Robotic Welding

Fronius WireSense

Fronius increases seam quality without slowing cycle time with robotic assistance systems by making the wire electrode a sensor as well as filler metal. This eliminates the time and expense of maintaining sensor hardware and doesn’t restrict component accessibility.
