A plasma welding robot can increase quality, while saving time and money by automating a more complex welding process.
Robotic plasma arc welding (PAW), closely related to TIG welding, constricts ionized gas through a copper nozzle. This produces higher temperatures and velocities, creating a smaller cross-section of the weld. Plasma welding commonly uses the same non-consumable tungsten, just like in TIG welding.
Plasma welding robots allow more flexibility with easy adjustments to the velocity and temperatures at which the weld is formed.

Plasma Arc Welding Advantages and Limitations
Industrial robots are able to do a variety of welding tasks including plasma arc welding. Plasma arc welding is an extension of gas metal tungsten welding that produces an amazing amount of control and quality product.
Focusing the weld with Plasma Welding
Robotic welding can tackle a wide range of applications such as plasma welding, arc welding, and TIG welding. Plasma welding robots are able to produce precise and highly focused welds. It does this by using a tungsten electrode and focuses the shielding gas with a copper nozzle.
