Robot WELDING

Macrobotics offers advanced manufacturing technologies to help customers save time and money. Combining years of experience and world leading technology, we can supply robotic welding packages to offer increased efficiency and quality of welding tasks and improve working environment. 

We can offer welding solutions to fit the most demanding automation criteria and suit materials including steel, aluminium and stainless steel.

Welding types

  • MIG/MAG - Standard, Pulse and PMC welding

  • CMT Welding (Cold Metal Transfer) can be used for 3D printing / WAAM

  • Twin welding wire (higher deposition rates)

  • Laserhybrid welding

  • TIG welding

  • Plasma TIG Welding

Seam finding 

Seam finding is used to verify part joint locations, this can be achieved using the wire as the sensor or a laser camera system. This process reduces the required component setup tolerances and manufacturing inaccuracies by detecting the plate edge height and positions, this can result in time and cost savings.  

Seam TRACKING

Seam tracking sensors are used to monitor joint positions in relation to the TCP (Tool Center point) during the welding process, which reduces rework and component rejects. Most commonly used sensors are TAST (Through Arc Seam Tracking) and laser cameras. These sensors communicate with the controller and path deviations are made autonomously. Both systems have their pros and cons for various application, so contact us for more information.
