CLEANING STATIONS for welding robotics


CLEANING STATIONS for welding robotics When a company considers to automate a welding application it is a necessity to include and think in a cleaning station for the correct maintenance and working of the complete cell. It automates three important applications: wire cutting to restart welding with the perfect wire distance to piece. nozzle cleaning of spatter stuck during the welding process through a reamering system antispatter spraying of the nozzle to avoid spattering stickness during the welding cycle The cleaning station reduces spare parts changing as it increases their durability. It also avoids welding failures in pieces and the horrible [...]

What is your welding torch power?


What is your welding torch power? Learn how to choose the correct torch power. When choosing a welding torch for our equipment, one of the most important factors is the power of the gun, or what is the same, the maximum intensity of use that it can endure. Most manufacturers use the maximum intensity of use as a reference when selecting the right torch, but this reference should be understood only as that, a reference. The intensity in real circumstances will be notably lower for the following reasons. The intensity reference is always taken with 100% CO2 protection gas: this gas [...]

ARC WELDING WITH COBOTS. It is not collaborative, but it makes sense! Collaborative robots are already a reality for several applications. The word “collaborative” has certainly been misused for some applications with commercial intentions since “collaborative” means that the robot can work side by side with a worker in a safe way as if it were another colleague in the line, but when it comes to arc welding, it is clear that it is not a collaborative application. Every welding cell has to be closed and has to comply with an estipulated number of safety issues to ensure the integrity of [...]

Welding spatter


Welding spatter When we MIG weld, spatter will most likely appear. Spatter are leftovers of welding wire that have not melted with the weld puddle. We will see in this post, what are the main causes, the consequences and how to eliminate it. Causes Spatter are caused by different reasons. The main ones are the following: Mostly, it is caused by the relationship between current and voltage of our welding machine. Normally this occurs when the welding voltage is too low or the current too high for a certain combination of wire and gas. In this situation the arc is too [...]

Keys to choosing robotic welding torches


Keys to choosing the right robotic welding torch Choosing between an optimal or inadequate robotic torch, could mean the difference between reaching your weekly quality and productivity targets, and struggle to meet promised lead time. To help you select the most convenient torch for your welding application and maximize the efficiency of the operating team, quality and profitability, you should consider these 8 key points: 1.Understanding the Tool Center Point (TCP) Tool Center Point, or TCP, is a point in space with a mathematical reference to the flange of a robot. For robotic welding GMAW, this is mainly how the [...]

Joint tracking systems for MIG/MAG Welding Robots


Joint tracking systems for MIG/MAG Welding Robots. Robots don’t make mistakes when welding, but we make them indeed; for instance, placing pieces  and their dispersion make robots lose their welding path, causing serious problems. Currently, when we opt for a robotic welding cell in the hope of both to multiply by 3 production rates and reduce costs, we don’t tend to take into account that robots do not detect our errors: fixture design mistakes, arranging mistakes, dispersion of manufactured pieces and human mistakes when piece-feeding the robot. This translates into frustration for the production responsible when trying to meet with expected [...]

Contact tips for MIG/MAG welding, a key element


Contact tips for MIG/MAG welding, a key element. Contact tips are a key element for our welding torches to work perfectly and on a daily basis its importance is more and more disregarded. We will unveil some myths and legends which manufacturers use to differentiate themselves from competition. Contact tips are manufactured almost entirely out of copper with some alloys which are used to tweak the contact tips characteristics depending on the welding application. Contact tips are responsible for supplying all the electric power to the welding wire and provide arch stability, but the question is: what type of contact [...]
