Reaching Faster Speeds with FANUC MIG Welders


Arc_Welding_Table_Legs.jpg#asset:868

MIG welding is one of the most common arc welding applications on the market today. MIG welding is used in many different industries, and one of the best ways to speed up the process and make it more efficient is to make the switch to robotic MIG welders, like those offered by FANUC Robotics – a switch that many companies have already made.

Why is a FANUC MIG welding robot so much faster than a manual application? It has a lot to do with the necessary steps that human workers must take when they are performing the MIG welding application. A manual MIG welding process includes stopping every so often, raising the welding helmet, and ensuring the welding torch is in the proper place. Then, the worker must lower their helmet again and continue welding. This process cuts into the productivity level of the welding application significantly, causing production to slow.

With a FANUC robotic MIG welder, there is no stopping to check placement. The MIG welding robot is able to keep a continuous weld on the part, and the robotic welder can perform these tasks as much as 4 times faster than a manual welder. That means that if a welder can get 16 parts done in one shift, a robotic MIG welder from FANUC could get 64 parts welded in one shift. This can dramatically increase a company’s ability to take on more orders and more clients, keeping them competitive in their marketplace.
