robotic welding works on the principles of mechanized programmable robots used in factory environment for manufacturing applications. With the revolution in the internet technology, more industries are automating their production in a larger extent. So the market for these programmable tools are gaining momentum in the industrial market. These industrial robots are slowly replacing the manual welding process due to its benefits. But what is a welding robot?
What you must know about Welding Robots
Welding automation are typically used in the weld process, where the requirement is repetitive and the demand for quality and consistency is much higher. With welding robot, you can achieve the goals for smaller and larger manufacturing industries. It improves the efficiency of welding process with best function packages. These programs are run by the controller in a programmed languages and it works based on your specification and the parameter fed to the system. There are several types of robotic welding processes.
• Arc Welding – It is one of the several fusion processes for joining the metals. This type of welding uses an electric arc between the electrode, which produced high energy of heat causing the metal to melt and fuse with another
• Resistance Welding – Resistance welding is a thermo-electric process for joining the metal sheets. It is one of the many methods to fasten two or more metals together
• Spot Welding – In this type of welding, metals are fused together by passing the electric current between the electrodes. Spot welding is the most common welding application found in the manufacturer field.
• MIG Welding – It is more similar to arc welding process. Column and boom welding manipulator is used in MIG welding for long continuous welds
Summing it up
Although there are number of welding processes available, only few are most commonly used and found to be efficient.
