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.

What are the Benefits of Welding Automation

Posted by Melissa Gomez on Jun 30, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Welding has changed over time – technology and the growing demands in the workplace have reshaped the way companies fabricate, weld and manufacture. The introduction of welding automation (including robotic/flexible automation and mechanized/hard/fixed automation) has provided companies with new options and ways to improve their manufacturing and welding processes.  However, transitioning from manual welding to automated welding (or positioning/movement of parts) can be an overwhelming road for companies to navigate. They may find themselves asking: 

 

  • What types of Welding Automation are there? (Learn more)
  • Why should I even bother automating? What are the benefits?

 

In this post, we’re going to address those last two questions:
