There are many types of welding, but arc welding robots are one of the most popular. Arc welding is a fusion welding process using an electric arc to produce the necessary heat for joining metals between the electrode and workpiece. Robotic arms provide an effective manufacturing solution for assembly applications.
We can find many types of manufacturing applications, but welding robots are popular in car manufacturing for welding the parts and components of the interior and exterior of the automobile in a simpler way.
Moreover, robotic arms are programmable machines and can be used for any type of welding application. Also, integrating sensors and controllers allows robots to perform a more steady and uniform weld.
Basic Steps for Arc Welding
- Prepare the workpiece by removing any rust or paint
- Choose the right filler material based on the part to be weld
- Ensure to select the proper welding process
- Follow all welding safety standards
- Protect the molten puddle from any air contaminations
- Inspect the weld.
Robots Reduce Health Hazards
Welding robots are robust and reliable for arc welding processes with minimum or no errors leaving the workpiece in optimal and impeccable condition.
Usually, the welder creates an electric arc that melts the base metals and the consumable filler metal together so that they all fuse into one solid piece of metal. Also, this process creates an intense heat not very healthy for the welder. However, welding robots are capable of resisting extreme heat without any future consequences.
Arc Welding Process
Robot welding provides very consistent weld and high-end quality welds while reducing the risk of health hazards.
Welding Robots enhance efficiency in the welding process. For this reason, arc welding robots are used extensively in the automotive industry, steel structures, metal fabrication, and industrial fabrication. For example, pipelines, cars, and buses assemblies’ lines, steel towers to mention some of them.
