Most of us are aware of industrial welding robots—those large, fast machines found on big assembly lines. But what about collaborative robots, also known as cobots? These compact machines can work safely alongside humans, but don’t let their size fool you; they’re the next big thing in welding automation.
Let’s explore how Red-D-Arc’s welding cobot can support your operation.
Setup is a breeze
If you can operate a smartphone, you can set up and operate the BotX welding cobot. Traditional industrial robots can take weeks to install and program. This same app offers a real-time cloud connection, which allows for 24/7 performance monitoring and troubleshooting support.
The Impact of Collaborative Robotics
Collaborative robots like the BotX Welder are shaping the future of manufacturing. Rob Goldiez of Hirebotics joins robotics investor Marc Cuban and Enrico Krog Iverson of OnRobot to discuss the impact of collaborative automation technology.

‘Manufacturing: The Next Generation — through collaborative automation’
This virtual event will see the robotics thought leaders discuss their powerful visions of the future of manufacturing. The expert panel will share insights on how collaborative automation helps future-proof manufacturing companies, helping to build resilience and reduce risk as the world navigates unprecedented COVID-19 challenges where uncertainty is now the only constant.
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.
Red-D-Arc Innovates with Robotic Welding
Since systems are at full capacity, custom metal fabrication and welding equipment industries are also in high demand to support production for medical devices and diagnostic equipment. Throughput is the most critical key performance indicator (KPI) for manufacturers, and an efficient rate of production requires consistency and high-quality output.

An Industry In Distress
The manufacturing industry is in distress. There is a shortage of skilled talent and this gap is only widening. While manufacturing companies are able to make goods faster and cheaper than ever, there is a growing lack of skilled manufacturing employees to ensure that production continues. Industry projections from Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, among other industry analysts, predict that over the next decade, more than 2 million manufacturing jobs will go unfilled across the U.S.
