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!
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?
This month’s featured product is IRCO Automations P3X 3 Axis Positioner. A product that allows us to explore and illustrate how traditional weld equipment can evolve to fit into a world of welding automation, robotic welding systems, and industry 4.0. Read more below!
Sections in this Post:
- The Problem: You want something "more"
- The Solution: "Smart" Weld Positioning Equipment and P3X example
- Ready for the Future: Data Monitoring
- Recap: Benefits
- Conclusion: The Future of Standard Product
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.
Read further to learn about ways to help reduce the risks associated with welding automation. We break it down into two sections or "rules" :
Automated reamers, or nozzle cleaning stations, help maximize the productivity of robotic welding systems. In this video and blog post we will talk about the importance of reaming the torch head on your system and a solution we’ve integrated into one of our linear welding robots to help maximize efficiency.
Weld Production Monitoring in a time of Recovery and Reinvention
Where and how does weld production monitoring fit into recovery and reinvention? Recently our team explore this topic in a feature article for WELD: Canadian Welding & Lifestyle Magazine's Fall 2020 issue.
