Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) is a common and reliable manual welding process. SMAW robots produce high quality welds at a lower cost.
Sometimes referred to as stick welding or manual metal arc (MMA), SMAW creates an arc between a consumable electrode covered in flux and the material being welded. The weld is shielded from contamination by the flux. The protective shielding gives this arc welding method greater resistance to varying conditions such as wind.
RobotWorx sells a variety of both new and reconditioned Shielded Metal Arc Welding and Stick Welding robots. Every used system is constructed to match client specifications and comes with the RobotWorx Value Package.
We have over 25 years of experiencing as a robotic integrator and are certified to integrate SMAW robots made by FANUC, Motoman, ABB, and KUKA. With successful installations throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico, RobotWorx has built a reputation for excellent workmanship and customer service.
