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?

Welding Torch Diffusors: Copper vs. Brass

Posted by Robin Reips on Feb 19, 2018 11:17:10 AM

We often see different materials used for welding torches and their consumables. Mostly you can see Brass and Copper or Copper alloy - depending on the needs. Since there are various Copper alloys, we focus on the Copper Alloy: CuCr1Zr. Remember also that Brass, which is known as an alloy from Copper and Zinc, has many variations, as well. We will work with an example here.

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.

Cable Assemblies – the Secret to Durable Automation

Posted by Dave Detmer on Sep 8, 2017 2:38:03 PM

When you think of welding automation, cable assemblies are probably not the highest priority when evaluating options. But you may be overlooking a critical part of the torch as you go through all the different robot torch options out there. Without question, the quality of your cable assembly plays a key role in maximizing the efficiency of your automated welding processes.

Robotic Torch Setups: Over-Arm, Through-Arm, and Endless Rotation

Posted by Dave Halliburton on Aug 31, 2017 12:14:40 PM

When choosing a through-arm torch or an over-arm torch, one should know the advantages, disadvantages, and the compatibility of each. And you might be surprised about which orientation is best for you, and what mount might be best for you depending on your process.

Why TH6x's Value Proposition is Truly Unique

Posted by Jason Jamiel on May 17, 2017 3:32:08 PM

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.

Keys to Laser Welding Lap and Edge Joints

Posted by Tom Graham on Apr 26, 2017 8:18:19 AM

As material selections in automotive manufacturing move further into the high-strength realm, along with the more prevalent usage of difficult-to-weld materials such as aluminum, developing robust processes for joining these materials becomes ever more critical. Adaptation of technologies such as real-time seam tracking, gap bridging, beam oscillation, and integrated clamping to laser-related processes allows for them to be used in a more mainstream approach.

Understanding Contact Tips

Posted by Matthew Sciannella on Mar 10, 2017 9:58:05 AM

Contact tips are highly misunderstood components in a welding gun setup. Choosing the correct contact tip for your welding application and understanding how to keep it performing at its best are just as critical as anything else needed to produce a quality weld.

Wire Liner Types & Best Practices

Posted by Paul Pfingston on Feb 27, 2017 1:21:46 PM

In today’s environment it is absolutely critical to minimize downtime and operate in the most efficient manner. Reasons for downtime are many and varied, particularly in the welding fabrication field. Grounding problems, gas leaks, contaminated material, machinery malfunction and worn components represent a few of the many issues confronted. In MIG welding, one of the most frustrating is wire feed problems and wire liner issues in general.
