Motoman Robotics Inc. uses the terms thermal and nonthermal to differentiate welding robots from non-welding robots. Thermal in this context refers to heat.
Motoman's numerous thermal robots and thermal robot systems are designed specifically for arc welding (MIG welding and TIG welding) or spot welding jobs. Nonthermal robot applications include material handling, assembly, pick and place, machine tending, etc.
