The Benefits of Switching from Manual Welding to MIG Welding Robots

May 13, 2014

Switching from manual welding to automation with MIG Welding robots will not be a disappointment. MIG welding robots increase a production lines versatility as it can weld different pieces depending on its EOAT. Manufacturers can save money on equipment and help to streamline their production processes by automating with robotic MIG welders.


Met­al Inert Gas Weld­ing, also known as MIG weld­ing, is a form of weld­ing that pro­duces an elec­tric arc that trav­els from a con­sum­able wire elec­trode to two work pieces, and the heat from the arc caus­es the work pieces to melt togeth­er. Over the last 20+ years, man­u­fac­tur­ers have been mak­ing the switch from man­u­al MIG weld­ing to robot­ic MIG weld­ing because of all of the ben­e­fits that it provides.

One of the rea­sons that MIG weld­ing robots have become so pop­u­lar is because of how easy they are to inte­grate into an exist­ing pro­duc­tion line. Unlike some appli­ca­tions that have to be com­plete­ly redesigned for a robot, the MIG weld­ing process allows man­u­fac­tur­ers to switch from a human welder to a robot­ic welder with rel­a­tive ease and min­i­mal line interruption.

Robot­ic MIG welders are also attrac­tive to man­u­fac­tur­ers because of their ver­sa­til­i­ty, some­thing that isn’t often found in man­u­al sys­tems. A MIG robot welder, with the right dress pack­age, can weld work pieces, or it can be repur­posed to per­form mate­r­i­al han­dling and mate­r­i­al removal appli­ca­tions. This type of ver­sa­til­i­ty means that man­u­fac­tur­ers can save mon­ey on equip­ment, as well as stream­line their pro­duc­tion process.
