Flexible or Hard Automation? Why?

Posted by Brandon Kunze on Jan 7, 2019 10:18:20 AM

When considering an automated welding process, fully or semi-automated, it is important to consider and compare the advantages and disadvantages of both for your operation, and how well each may (or may not) integrate into your established welding process. Sometimes, deciding one way or the other is very clear based on the kinds of welds being performed, and other times it’s a matter of how much productivity you need to meet your goals.

How Much Does a Robotic Torch Cost?

Posted by Jim DiLeo on Mar 20, 2018 1:26:00 PM

So what does a robotic torch cost? You probably browse some of the welding equipment supplier websites and never see a price on those sites (ours included!), but then go to a welding distributor website or browse through their catalogs and get the List price from them. How do you know what you're paying for?

Air-cooled vs. Water-cooled: Robotics Edition

Posted by Etienne Blouin on Sep 18, 2017 9:30:36 AM

When it comes to robotic mig welding you often have to ask the question about whether you should go air-cooled or water-cooled. It's always good to have the right tool in the right place for both optimal performance and cost. Basically, looking at water-cooled versus air cooled, there are obvious cases where you would choose one over the other.
