Oxyacetylene Welding Robots

Oxy­acety­lene weld­ing, usu­al­ly referred to as gas weld­ing or oxy­fu­el gas weld­ing (OFW), is a ver­sa­tile process that depends on the com­bus­tion of oxy­gen and acety­lene. The chem­i­cal com­bi­na­tion of the oxy­acety­lene flame can be adjust­ed by con­vert­ing the ratio of the vol­ume of oxy­gen to acety­lene. This cre­ates three dis­tinc­tive flame set­tings to be avail­able for use: neu­tral, oxi­diz­ing, and carburizing.

Oxy­fu­el weld­ing is gen­er­al­ly car­ried out using the neu­tral flame set­ting which has equal amounts of oxy­gen and acety­lene. The oxi­diz­ing flame is acquired by increas­ing just the oxy­gen flow rate while the car­bur­iz­ing flame is obtained by increas­ing acety­lene flow in cor­re­la­tion to oxy­gen flow. Steel melts at tem­per­a­tures above 2,732oF, so the com­bi­na­tion of oxy­gen and acety­lene is used because it is the only gas blend with enough heat to weld steel. How­ev­er, oth­er gas­es such as propane, hydro­gen and coal gas can be used for join­ing low­er melt­ing point, non-fer­rous met­als, as well as for braz­ing and sil­ver soldering.

Robots​.com sells a vari­ety of both new and recon­di­tioned oxy­acety­lene weld­ing robots that can be used for many dif­fer­ent appli­ca­tions. Robots​.com pro­vides new and refur­bished robots into oxy­acety­lene weld­ing work cell con­fig­u­ra­tions through­out the U.S., Cana­da, and Mex­i­co. Robots​.com has built a rep­u­ta­tion for excel­lent work­man­ship and cus­tomer ser­vice. Every used sys­tem is con­struct­ed to match client specifications.
