Robotic Welding

Robotic Welding

Robots are flexible machines that can be easily reprogrammed and need minimal hard tooling

Regardless of order size, robotic welding systems allow our customers to lower production cost while improving quality of product. Robotic welding saves money on complex one-off assemblies, where the programming effort is repaid in faster welding and less risk of scrap. With fewer parts needed for setup, there’s more capacity for production. Robotic welding promotes better safety thus creating more innovative designs with tightly focused and minimized heat input.

Advantages of robotic welding:

Precise control of the laser beam offers users several benefits over TIG, MIG and spot-welding. Here are a few reasons why robotic welding is a better alternative:

  • Weld strength: Higher strength and narrow laser weld with an excellent depth-to-width ratio.
  • Heat affected zone: Heat affected zones are limited. With rapid cooling, the surrounding material is not annealed.
  • Metals: Lasers are able to weld carbon steel, high strength steel, stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, and precious metals as well as dissimilar materials.
  • Precision work: The small, tightly controlled laser beam permits accurate micro-welding of miniature components.
  • Deformation: Minimal deformity or shrink of parts.
  • No contact: No physical contact between material and laser head.
  • One sided welding: Laser welding can replace spot welding requiring access from one side only.
  • Scrap: Laser welding is controllable and generates low volumes of scrap.
