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.Read More
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.Listen to the Full Episode
I’ve heard from several users that are curious about the global arc welding market. Globalization of manufacturing is here to stay, but does it affect robotic arc welding which is all about Amps, volts and travel speed?
There are regional differences between continents that affect the development of welding power source technology:Read More
