3 Tips to Improve your Robotic Welding Systems

There are many welding robots and applications that you can integrate into your industry or workshop for improved productivity and performance.

To make the most out of the robotic welding systems in your machining robotic cell, you should know a few tips. These robotic hacks will improve your operational efficiency and decrease the downtime for mechanical welding machines during industrial applications.

Coordinate the following 3 points in your welding cells for a lucrative return on your investment.

Enhance Communication and Integration

Communication is critical for all businesses, regardless of the department or operation. When deploying an advanced industrial robot in your welding workshop, it is critical to coordinate all the protocols for better communication.

If you’re adding an automated power source to your welding robot, remember to program and align the communication protocols. If you’re establishing an entire milling or machining robotic cell, get in touch with a robotic company to integrate your welding robots with the power sources, syringe dispenser guns, welding pliers, and other welding parts. Putting these components together into an efficient production system is definitely worth all the time, money, and efforts. Welding robot integration will lower your production costs, reduce errors, improve product quality, and minimize time spent on batch production.

Choose the appropriate wire.

Robotic welding systems involve very minute deviations, and even a small deviation in the wire feeding can produce erroneous results. Therefore, your welding robot must have a wire feeder that can feed seamlessly through the liners and drive rolls. Welding wires explicitly designed for robotic applications offer enhanced feeding operations than those engineered for all-purpose applications.

Arc performance of welding a welding wire is another feature critical to robotic applications. A wire offering unstable arc starts can significantly increase the machine downtime, reducing your robotic welding system’s productivity.

Use the right amp torch consumables.

The consumables on the welding MIG guns and amp torch play a vital role in the smooth delivery of electric current to the wire and shielding gases to facilitate gas metal arc welding (GMAW), and other welding processes. Your choice of consumables will determine the stability of current delivery under high temperatures throughout the day. With uninterrupted conductivity and minimal heat buildup, consumables ensure the quality of your weld and reduce the risk of failure.
