Fixtures, Tooling, and Quality Assurance

Many of our customers, particularly those in the automotive industry, must meet stringent quality and statistical process control (SPC) requirements. Motoman Application Engineers will analyze individual component tolerances to determine whether the total assembly can meet specified tolerances. They will also make suggestions that will help customers simplify their parts to make robotic processing possible or easier to accomplish.

Motoman welding robots have Com-Arc, Touch-Sense and Seam-Tracking options available that can help solve most part variability issues. Motoman also offers application-specific welding robots that are specifically designed for welding in tight spaces that could not be reached by traditional welding robots.
