5 Tools Every Robotic Welding Torch Should Have

Posted by Dustin Gordon on Mar 27, 2018 10:08:00 AM

Robotic welding torches can streamline the welding process and make it a more reliable and faster production. But robotic welding cells and the torch itself is only as good as what you surround it with. Beyond talented personnel, there are tools every welding robot and robotic torch could use to make automated welding a more effective and efficient process. We're going to cover 5 tools that I feel from all my years' experience seeing automated welding operations big and small that many could use to great effect on their robotic welding torch.

Optical Seam Tracking & Hard Automation

Posted by Scott Huber on May 18, 2017 11:23:00 AM

Hard automation in the past has always been about joystick controllers and a birdsnest operator controlling the movement of the gantry or positioning system to guide the welding arc through the weld piece. And incoporating seam tracking into this solution? Leave that to the robots.

Today, however, optical seam tracking is finding itself now more than ever a real solution and added value to those hard automation processes, and leading old-school, analog welding operations to look at seam tracking technology in a different light.

Why TH6x's Value Proposition is Truly Unique

When you're looking at the things to value in an optical seam tracking system there's a lot to consider. What joints do I need to track, can the sensor track it, how much time can it save me off my cycle time, how reliable does it track? Lots of question, sure, and maybe there are some others that you've considered as you've look around at optical seam tracking solutions out there.

But with seam tracking you have to get the most in terms of value, convenience, and effectiveness, and that's something TH6x can provide to the automated process in abundance.
