Manufacturing window frames with robotic welding

Apr 21, 2013

Window frame manufacturing can create very consistent and precise products when converted to automated welding production lines. Manufacturing window frames with an automated solution will create a high quality product and increase your overall throughput.


Robot­ic weld­ing has many uses in indus­try, and it seems that the win­dow frame man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try has start­ed to take notice over the last few years.

In 2006, Wid­ney LTD. in the Unit­ed King­dom start­ed man­u­fac­tur­ing alu­minum win­dow frames for off-road vehi­cles in one of their fac­to­ries. With the instal­la­tion of the Motoman Arc­Sys­tem 6000 weld­ing cell, the frames were weld­ed faster and had more uni­for­mi­ty. The cell was faster than oth­er cells, and up to six times more pro­duc­tive than man­u­al welders, giv­ing weld­ing robot­ics the edge in the facility.

Fast for­ward six years, and the Ger­man com­pa­ny, Metex, is also using robot­ic weld cells to auto­mate their win­dow and door weld­ing appli­ca­tions. The com­pa­ny decid­ed to switch to weld­ing robot­ics because man­u­al weld­ing was high­ly depen­dent on the lev­el of skill each indi­vid­ual welder had, and not all welders in the facil­i­ty were at the same skill lev­el, which caused qual­i­ty differences.

By choos­ing robot­ic weld­ing cells, pro­duc­tiv­i­ty got a boost, and win­dow frames became more uni­form, with accu­rate robot­ic weld beads, cre­at­ing a supe­ri­or-qual­i­ty product.

With the push to become auto­mat­ed, many com­pa­nies are not sure where to go to get their weld­ing robot­ic ques­tions answered. For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact Robots​.com at 8777626881.
