Yaskawa Motoman industrial robots and robotics automation systems

Automated Welding Applications

25 Years of innovative welding automation

Contact Sales

Arc welding is the core of our company. Over the years we have developed more application-specific robots than any other company. Our welding process knowledge and path control has led the industry for the last 25 years.

With our comprehensive line of arc welding robots, integrated power sources, torches and peripherals, and our extensive family of fully integrated ArcWorld welding cells, we provide reliable, low-risk building block solutions that deliver enhanced quality, productivity and ROI.

Yaskawa Motoman's team of Automation Engineers or a Motoman Strategic Partner (MSP) can incorporate turnkey systems to suit production requirements of varied industries.

Integrated with leading arc welding power sources

Don't give up the power to use your own source. While other robot brands limit your power supply options, Yaskawa Motoman provides high-level digital interfaces for the widest range of power source brands including Fronius, Miller, Lincoln Electric and SKS. With our digital interface, the power source weld parameters can be monitored and adjusted directly from our programming pendant.

Automated welding for your biggest challenges

Projects often require modifications to our standard product offering of robots, positioners, platforms and peripherals. Standard or modified positioners and robots can be combined in customized configurations to reduce costs and lead time.

Add flexibility with pre-engineered weld stations

We understand complex part welding, from exhaust systems and ATV systems to vehicle frames. We employ more welding professionals than any other robot company. We have the expertise to help you navigate a project on the front end through delivery and support your production needs over the years.
