Smoother Spot Welding With Robot Automation

May 13, 2014

Industrial robots knew that they could help improve efficiency on spot welding lines. Industrial spot welding robots help to increase the application speeds and smooth the process out. Spot welding robots produce incredibly accurate, precise and consistent welds each and every time.

Spot weld­ing is one of the old­est forms of robot­ic weld­ing. It was designed in the 1960s for use in the auto­mo­tive indus­try, and this form of weld­ing has been going strong ever since. The need for spot weld­ing robots in the indus­tri­al indus­try is dri­ven because of the weight and awk­ward nature of the man­u­al spot weld­ing gun. By using a robot, instead of a human welder, the appli­ca­tion is much faster and smoother than ever before.

Robot­ic spot welders are very com­mon in the auto­mo­tive and oth­er trans­porta­tion indus­tries. How­ev­er, the process of spot weld­ing is tedious. Man­u­al work­ers have to check their posi­tion after every weld to make sure they are in the right spot. Robot spot welders do not have this issue. They move down their seam weld­ing in a per­fect­ly straight line, with­out need­ing to waste the extra time to check after every weld. This speeds up the weld­ing process, as well as mak­ing it more accurate.

Because of the size of the weld­ing gun, a man­u­al spot welder can also be sub­ject­ed to injuries caused by years of bend­ing over dur­ing the weld­ing process. Once again, this not an issue for a spot weld­ing robot. While a spot weld­ing robot­ic sys­tem will need to be main­tained, man­u­fac­tur­ers do not run the risk of injuries that could slow down or stop the pro­duc­tion line, which can be the case with man­u­al weld­ing processes.

All in all, spot weld­ing is a job that should be left up to robots. This tedious form of weld­ing is best served by these fast and high­ly accu­rate machines that improve the qual­i­ty of work pieces and products. 

There are plen­ty of robot brands and mod­els capa­ble of spot weld­ing appli­ca­tions. Robots​.com has a wide selec­tion of both new and refur­bished robots that can be com­plete­ly inte­grat­ed into a spot weld­ing posi­tion in a pro­duc­tion line.
