Robotic welding improves productivity and machining efficiency

Benefits of robotic welding for machining

Therobotic welding has been a revolution for the machining industry, offering a series of benefits ranging from efficiency until the precision. The most important thing for a company or workshop that is dedicated to manufacturing of parts, is to deliver high quality parts, improve production processes and stay at the forefront.

What is robotic welding?

The welding It is an essential machine tool in any machining workshop. Basically, it is used to join parts and/or repair them. Although the TIG machines and MIG are the most common, they are not the only ones. The most advanced are the robotic welding, sometimes called robotic. What are they? These are mechanized programmable tools, that is, robots.

With these it is possible to make a welding process automatically. The great advantage of this equipment is that not only is it possible to do the welding work itself, but the robots are also capable of hold the piece that is going to be mechanized. In Metal Transformed Toral We are experts in welding and one of the most advanced equipment that is part of our stock is the FANUC ARC Mate 120iB/10L welding robot.

Robotic welding has great benefits for machining

The advantages of robotic welding

The welding robot that you can find in Toral, it's perfect for him machined by soldier in narrow spaces. It has a transmission which allows you to reach the highest speeds and, thanks to its high rigidity, has a repeatability of ± 0.02 mm. What does this mean? What is possible to obtain maximum flexibility during machining, as well as great performance. All this improves the productivity, while operating costs are reduced. The best? That its installation is quite simple. We see the benefits of robotic welding.

Precision in machining

Robotic welding stands out for its ability to perform welds with millimeter precision. This is because the robots are programmed to follow exact patterns, which guarantees the consistency in each weld made. This quality is especially important in mechanized where the dimensional accuracy It is crucial for the proper functioning of the parts. In this sense, robotic welding guarantees that the tolerances are respected and that the assembled parts comply with the Specifications demanded.

Greater efficiency and speed

The welding robots They can work uninterrupted, that is, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without fatigue or mistakes. This means that the manufacturing times are reduced considerably, leading to greater production in less time. On the other hand, robots have the ability to switch between different types of welding quickly and without interruptions. This undoubtedly further improves efficiency and optimizes overall performance.

Cost reduction

Any machine tool that operates automatic supposes a reduction in production costs. Robotic welding is no exception. Implementing this type of robots in the workshop represents a considerable reduction in operating costs, as well as labor. Furthermore, depending on the machine, the same operator can work multiple teams simultaneously. On the other hand, the precision of robotic welding minimizes material waste.

Improves operator safety

The robotic welding It also involves a series of benefits when it comes to operator safety. And it is that, when they automate tasks that can be dangerous, robots contribute to reduce operator exposure to risky conditions; This minimizes the possibility of accidents in the workplace.

Flexibility and adaptability of robotic welding

Despite its high automation, robotic welding is very flexible and adaptable. Robots can be programmed in such a way that they adapt to a wide variety of shapes and sizes of the pieces. This allows a wide range of parts to be machined without the need to constantly change equipment or reprogram robots.

Improve product quality

The robotic welding guarantees constant quality in each machining that is carried out. By eliminating the variability associated with operator skills and minimize human errors, defects in machined parts are reduced. This results in higher quality and reliable products, which improves customer satisfaction.
