What is welding automation? 


Simply put, automated welding uses a robotic arm to weld – creating a repetitive movement to increase speed, accuracy, safety and quality. The process is the same as a regular welding process, but instead of human labor, technology does the majority of the job. This has become vastly popular amongst welders for many reasons. Here are some of the greatest benefits that our team has noticed: 


Benefits of Incorporating Automation Technology 


  • Consistent and top-notch product quality
  • Decreased workload
  • Decreased operating costs
  • Increased productivity
  • Enhanced work safety
  • Lowers environmental footprint
  • Employee retention


How is the industry changing? 


As the industry starts to incorporate more technology and automated tools, there will still be a need for human welders. While these tools may make the job easier or more efficient, knowledgeable welders will need to be on the other end putting in information and making sure the process is running smoothly.
