Over the years, robotic welding has been utilized in various industries to increase productivity by automating production and ensuring consistent quality. Traditionally, robotic welders required large investments in equipment and in personnel training.
Why Robotic Welding?
Some of the reasons for using robotic welding are as follows:
- Production automation
- Cost reduction
- Quality improvement (consistency and repeatability)
- Improved health and safety (personnel are not exposed to hazardous fumes or radiation)
- Address shortage of skilled welders (an operator is required—not a welder)
- Increased flexibility (versus hard automation)
- Efficiency improvements
- Reduce repetitive strain injuries
In the midst of the current global pandemic, massive challenges to public health and safety have impacted the global economy resulting in significant levels of unemployment in many countries. While small businesses are scaling down or declaring bankruptcy, critical industries like manufacturing are stepping up to meet the challenges of the pandemic. Rapidly deployed, innovative solutions are helping provide much-needed medical devices, services, and supplies.
