Motoman welding robots in the woodworking industry

Jul 9, 2013

Wood working industries are realizing the benefits of automation outweigh the manual wood working industries. Motoman welding robots provides wood working industries superior quality welds while also enabling versatility for plate thicknesses and other product needs. The Motoman welder in the wood working industry is also flexible and ready to work with a variety of production needs.


Sev­er­al indus­tries world­wide use Motoman weld­ing robots in for dif­fer­ent weld­ing appli­ca­tions. One indus­try, the wood indus­try, has com­pa­nies that have used Motoman welders for decades.

Schep­pach, a Ger­man-based man­u­fac­tur­er of wood­work­ing machines is one of those com­pa­nies. They have employed robot­ic Motoman welders in their fac­to­ry for over 20 years. Because of their long his­to­ry and suc­cess with these Motoman weld­ing robots, Schep­pach decid­ed to add addi­tion­al welders to their production.

The com­pa­ny was look­ing for a Motoman weld­ing robot that could offer the com­pa­ny supe­ri­or-qual­i­ty welds while also being ver­sa­tile on the var­i­ous plate thick­ness­es it could weld. The Motoman welder also had to be flex­i­ble so it could han­dle assem­bly and the final welds as well.

With all that in mind, the com­pa­ny end­ed up pur­chas­ing a Motoman weld­ing sys­tem using a Motoman MA1900 robot sus­pend­ed from a gantry system.

This Motoman weld­ing robot not only sped up the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of the line, but it also improved the accu­ra­cy of the parts being weld­ed. Anoth­er advan­tage was that the Motoman weld­ing robot did not have to stop to take 15-minute breaks or half hour lunch­es. It runs with­out breaks on a two-shift operation.

The inte­gra­tion of this gantry Motoman weld­ing robot to their pro­duc­tion has over­all saved them on pro­duc­tion and labor costs, as well as improv­ing the qual­i­ty of their over­all end prod­uct. The sys­tem met all of Scheppach’s needs and expec­ta­tions – which has prob­a­bly cement­ed them as a Motoman weld­ing cus­tomer for decades to come.
