SERIES: Where does Weld Production Monitoring Fit into Recovery and Reinvention?
Where does Weld Production Monitoring Fit into Recovery and Reinvention?
[Part 1 of a 5 part series: Introduction to Series]
A couple months ago, we posted Automated Welding : Myth vs Reality, an article exploring some common misconceptions about Welding Automation. As a follow-up to that post, and by special request, Matt has added to this series and provided us with a narrower look at Robotic Welding Automation: Myth vs Reality. Continue reading below to learn more about some of the misconceptions and facts about Robotic welding automation!
Did you ever watch that show on the Discovery channel or Science Channel called How It's Made? They would take some of the most random items, such as aluminum foil, contact lenses, glasses, pistons, etc., and in a quick episode breakdown how the basics of how it was manufactured. A lot of the products were made with some sort of automated system.....But did you ever wonder while watching, "How on Earth does that system work?" Maybe you'd wondered that same question about automated welding systems...."How on Earth does that work?" In this post, our guest writer, Steve, breaks down the 4 key components of an Automated Welding System. Read further to learn more!

Ready to "level up" your knowledge about Welding Automation? When choosing which type of system to go with, clarity to determine the best fit can come from knowing and understanding your goals and ROI. But when you have the choice between Hard or Robotic automation - a lot of questions might come up. Which is better for you? Is one type safer? Is one more expensive?
The choice of whether or not to include a weld camera in the design of an automated welding system is one of the quickest and easiest decisions for some of our customers. But do you have any idea why?
In this post, we’ll explore 4 of the key benefits of using weld cameras and why you should consider integrating them onto your automated welding system.
