Welding perfection – the right welding cell for you

Jul 15, 2013

When a customer comes to Robots.com for a welding cell, they will also get amazing customer service and representatives who have had years of service experience in the industry. Customers will need to decide on the type of robot, positioner, and a safety package for their specific welding cell.


As one of the most com­mon auto­mat­ed appli­ca­tion today, robot­ic weld­ing is con­stant­ly in demand. In the last 20 years, com­pa­nies like Robots​.com have begun to inte­grate weld­ing appli­ca­tions, as well as mate­r­i­al han­dling and mate­r­i­al removal appli­ca­tions, for cus­tomers. A robot­ic inte­gra­tor takes robots from oth­er com­pa­nies like Fanuc, Motoman, ABB, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and KUKA and cus­tomizes them specif­i­cal­ly for customers.

Cus­tomers wish­ing to cus­tomize their weld­ing cell are in for a real treat when work­ing with a com­pa­ny like Robots​.com. We have an entire cat­a­log of robot­ic weld­ing robots, as well as sev­er­al posi­tion­ers, safe­ty pack­ages and oth­er fea­tures available.

When a man­u­fac­tur­er comes to Robots​.com for a robot­ic weld cell, they have to decide on what kind of robot they want, what kind of posi­tion­er they want and what kind of safe­ty pack­age they are look­ing for.

There are a pletho­ra of robot­ic arms that can be inte­grat­ed into a cus­tomized weld­ing cell. Cus­tomers can use any­thing from the Fanuc ARC Mate 100iC to the Motoman MA1400 to the KUKA KR 6 Arc. These robots have dif­fer­ent pay­load capac­i­ties and have the abil­i­ty to per­form sev­er­al dif­fer­ent weld­ing appli­ca­tions, depend­ing on the weld­ing pack­age and program.

With posi­tion­ers, it all depends on the manufacturer’s appli­ca­tion and the size of the parts. While small­er pieces might be suit­ed for sta­tion­ary or a 180-degree turntable, larg­er parts need some­thing like a fer­ris wheel posi­tion­er that allows for simul­ta­ne­ous weld­ing by mul­ti­ple robots.

When choos­ing safe­ty pack­ages, man­u­fac­tur­ers need to con­sid­er what humans will be inter­act­ing with the weld­ing cell. They can choose to install inter­lock­ing doors to com­plete­ly close off the cell dur­ing oper­a­tion, or safe­ty light cur­tains and pres­sure mats that use move­ment and weight to momen­tar­i­ly delay an appli­ca­tion if some­thing gets into the work zone dur­ing operation.

With all these options, it is easy to get over­whelmed. Nev­er fear! The team at Robots​.com will help you sort out all the options until you have the per­fect weld­ing cell for your facil­i­ty. For more infor­ma­tion on automa­tion with Robots​.com, con­tact us today online or at 8777626881.
