Maximizing Your Productive Welding Space

Posted by Chris Anderson on Jul 24, 2018 10:00:00 AM

Designed on the principles of lean manufacturing to reduce waste and improve workflow, robotic arc welding workcells can provide accuracy, reliability, versatility and speed for many industrial applications spanning diverse industries. While some manufacturers would argue the most efficient robotic workcell on the market is the one with the smallest footprint, there are other factors to consider. Which leads us to the question: what is the most efficient use of valuable floorspace?

Weld Inspection for Safety Critical Assemblies

Posted by Chris Anderson on Nov 2, 2017 10:44:27 AM

The stakes are high for manufacturers producing automotive parts. Automobile drivers and passengers rely on weld quality to hold up under the conditions for which it was designed. One uncaught mistake during the fabrication process could leave a business vulnerable or worse, especially when the part in question is “safety critical” to an assembly.

Keep on Truckin’ Lightly with Aluminum Welding

Posted by Chris Anderson on Jan 25, 2017 3:13:24 PM

Manufacturers of over-the-road vehicles (also referred to as OTR or long-haul trucks), and to a lesser degree car manufacturers, are improving fuel economy and reducing the weight of their vehicles with aluminum. Assembling frames, trailers and other components made of aluminum requires welding, and there are important differences between robotically welding steel components versus those made of aluminum.
