There are many different welding processes used across a range of industries and with various metals, alloys, and even non-metal materials. Regardless of the specific process used, welding uses heat to cause melting of the material, intermixing of the melt and cooling to create a fused joint that is strong, durable and complete.
Today, thanks to advances in technology robotic welding services are available. This highly precise welding option allows for the fast production of even complicated welding requirements. There are several benefits and advantages to robotic welding to make this a great choice for many different parts and components.
Extremely Low Waste
With robotics, every weld is identical. This can be achieved similar to how CNC machining provides exact replicas of the original CAD/CAM drawing, eliminating any variations occurring through manual machining.
In any robotic welding services, the robotic arm movement, the part positioning and even the precision time for the weld are always exactly the same. This is simply not possible with manual welding, where various factors can cause slight differences.
Exact replication of the welding process with each part results in no waste, helping to reduce costs and increase production efficiency.
Better Weld Quality
It may be surprising to find out that robotic welding services produce better weld quality over manual welding. The perfect precision and absolute control over the welding cycle ensures a quality weld with each part or component that goes through the process.
It is also possible to complete multiple welds on a part quickly, efficiently and with the precision required even for the most demanding tolerances and standards. Once the equipment is set up, the program can be stored in memory and recalled to provide the next production run.
While robotic welding is not the right solution for every welding job, it is well worth considering where precision welds and high production volume is a factor.
