Quick Guide: Automated Beam Welding Systems

Posted by Melissa Gomez on Jul 29, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Our team at IRCO Automation has had the opportunity to work with some of the most experienced beam manufacturing companies in the nation and one thing we've noticed is that all of them share similar key pain-points that they're looking to welding automation to help solve:  

  • needing to maintain a consistent weld profile
  • needing consistent welding process parameters
  • minimizing beam deflection due to heat
  • overcoming beam deflection during welding
As talk of infrastructure renewal is fresh on everyone's minds, we thought we'd take a moment to talk about Automated Beam Welding systems and share a few examples.
