Currently, one of the most highly-requested applications is robotic welding, which is customised according to the client’s requirements. What welding cells do is make each weld solid, while allowing the robotic system and welding system to interact with each other and change how they operate automatically. In this way, they increase both the quality of the welding tasks and security, which makes it possible to also increase performance and speed, with lower costs for labour and materials and greater employee safety.
The integration of robotic cells has been applied in industrial sectors such as: car manufacturing, arc welding, plasma welding, MIG welding, TIC welding, steel piping, industrial welding and the construction area.
When integrating a robotic welding cell, its components must be taken into account. In general, we find :
Robot: traditionally with 6 axes, controller and a teaching console, useful load capacity and the power to perform several applications with the respective software. Today it is very easy to know how to programme a robot in order to have them perform precise yet safe welding, thus reducing waste and improving production times.
Welder: this component includes several elements such as the portable gun and robotic systems, MIG feeder, power supply and flashlight, which offer efficiency and effectiveness.
Power supply: This must be selected depending on whether the type of industrial sector is light or heavy, as well as the welding process: if it’s MIG/MAG welding, arc welding, spot welding, plasma welding, etc. There are some welding processes that are more demanding or heavy, for which there are multi-process packages or powered servomotors.
Being sure of what you want will save you time and money when integrating the cell into your robotic welding system and production line.
There are factors that are important when it comes to the robotic cell process, and which we must be aware of us, such as the infrastructure that allows for the robotic application, maintenance, knowledge of the manual process in combination with robotics, and the determination of the problem.
Taking into account the above, what is the benefit of integrating a welding cell into our production line?
- Certified welding
- High quality control in welded products
- Higher welding production
- Quality assurance against competitors
- Repetitive welding process
- Minimum waste of material
- Minimum risk of workplace injuries
If you are planning on integrating a robotic welding cell system, keep in mind that the longer amount of time a robot is welding for, the faster your investment will be liquidated. There are companies like Usedrobotstrade that offer these types of affordable and guaranteed robotic welding cell systems. With us can receive advice from professionals who will offer you the best solution based on your budget and your production line.
