Flux Cored Welding Robots
Flux Cored Welding, also known as flux cored arc welding (FCAW), is a welding process that requires a continuously-fed consumable electrode containing a flux and a constant-voltage.
Flux cored welding robots were developed as an alternative to shielded metal arc welding and are used on mild and low alloy steels, stainless steels, some high nickel alloys and some wear facing/surfacing alloys.
Automating this welding process is advantageous to consumers because it is user-friendly and has high-speed capabilities. Robots provide more consistent quality welds, making FCAW a great application to automate.
Robots.com carries a variety of both new and refurbished flux cored welding robots made by manufacturers like Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, and ABB. All of our refurbished robots undergo a rigorous reconditioning process.
