There are several types of robotic welding processes in the machining industry. Here are some of them listed below.
-Laser Welding: Laser welding uses a laser generator that has a robotic cutting head. These are best used for hard to reach welding areas or high-volume operations.
-Plasma Welding: This type of welding is when ionized gas passes through a nozzle made of copper which produces very high temperatures.
-Arc Welding: Arc Welding is when there is an electric arc between the metal base and electrode causing an intense heat to be produced. The two pieces of material are then melted together. Robotic arc welding is an application of robotics that has been growing and now is around 20% of industrial robot applications
-Spot Welding: Spot welding is a type of resistance welding where metals are joined together.
-MIG Welding (also goes by Gas Metal Arc Welding): MIG welding is a high deposition rate process where a wire is continuously fed toward the heated weld tip.
-Resistance Welding: This type of welding is when a current is passed between two pieces of material (metal), heats up, and a pool is formed where the two pieces are joined.
-TIG Welding (also goes by Gas Tungsten Arc Welding): This is a high-quality process in which the arc is formed between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the material (metal).
Below are some tips for owning a robotic welding machine.
