Robots & Robotic Welding Torches | ABB Robotics x ABICOR BINZEL

Posted by Scott Huber on Mar 31, 2022 11:18:00 AM

As technology advances, your workplace must adapt to keep up with the need. That period of adapting will look different for everyone, as some operations needs are on a much smaller scale than others. For those in larger manufacturing plants, the push to automate has become a more prevalent move. Productivity is the name of the game and to keep up, operations must be able to repeat their tasks quickly and efficiently.

Keys to Wire Feeding In Automated Robotic Welding Applications

Posted by Scott Huber on Jan 19, 2021 3:08:22 PM

Wire feeding is a critical part to your automated welding process. Without functioning wire, this multi-layered, complex process would not deliver optimal performance. This could lead to complete failure of your process. Challenges can arise due to wire feed speed, wire feed distance, and friction within the system causing a host of problems throughout your process. As you continue to understand your robotic welding cell, it is important to evaluate your wire feed practices.

Why Electronic Gas Management is Poised to Improve the Cost of Welding Gas

Posted by Scott Huber on May 7, 2018 3:00:00 PM

Gas delivery and gas management is inefficient and in need of some innovation. Looking at the landscape of gas delivery and gas management optimization, there’s very little invested or innovated in the actual deliverance of gas from supply tank through the control device and out the welding nozzle.

Gas Management System EWR 2: Frequently Asked Questions

Posted by Scott Huber on May 1, 2018 10:28:53 AM

When version one of the Electronic Welding Regulator EWR was released, we received a lot of questions about it's performance and how exactly it works to control the flow of shielding gas.

Now with version 2.0 of the EWR out - the EWR 2 / EWR 2 Net - we wanted to answer some of the frequently asked questions we received on the original EWR and update it for the next generation of gas management:

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 birds nest operator controlling the movement of the gantry or positioning system to guide the welding arc through the weld piece. And incorporating 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.
