Why Robotic Welding?
Our investments in robotic welding reflect our belief that robotic welding systems:
Robotic welders increase productivity through decreased production time, increased weld consistency / decreased rework and increased weld versatility. Manual welding requires managing the welder’s workload in order to manage fatigue and maintain consistent quality. This means that welders should have the necessary breaks between physically taxing projects. Unlike traditional welders, robotic welders do not require any downtime. They can continuously perform 24/7 while maintaining the same quality welds. Traditional welding utilizes multiple jigs to access certain welding locations. Robotic welders can be programmed to perform a wide variety of welding configurations eliminating the use of multiple jigs and saving precious production time.
The largest expense in producing welded products is labor. Traditional welders require training, breaks, and occasionally produce welds that require rework. Robotic welders can perform through all hours of the night while consistently producing quality products without errors. Robotic welding minimizes these costs while freeing skilled labor to be productive on projects that are more conducive to manual welding.
Robotic welders can be programmed to repeatedly perform precise welding angles, speeds, and distances. This consistency results in higher quality weld joint in any application.
Robotic welders perform more efficiently than traditional welders. This capability results in fewer expended resources. Robotic welders regulate all aspects of the welding process. This consists of power usage, filler wire and gases. By performing fast and efficiently, robotic welders minimize the excessive use of these costly materials.
Robotic welders also limit the amount of parts which need to be scrapped. With increased precision and consistency, robotic welding eradicates human error which contributes to scrapped parts.
Welders are exposed to various health risks such as exposure to toxic fumes, burns, weld flash, which results in permanent eye damage, electrical shocks, and possible other injuries. Robotic welding is conducted through remote supervision, allowing the operator to be a safe distance away from these hazards.
Advance Welding is excited to invest in equipment that increases productivity and improves quality on behalf of our aerospace and mil-spec welding customers.
