    Every industrial application is necessary in its own right. Material handling, painting, assembly, you name it – each application has a purpose on the production line. 

    Out of all applications, however, welding might be the most important. 

    Why is that? Learn more about welding and how to purchase a weld controller for your facility below.

    What is welding? 

    industrial-robot-weldingWelding is a vital part of manufacturing and the economy as a whole. In fact, over 50 percent of the gross national U.S. product is produced using welding at one point. 

    The welding process uses high heat to melt metal, wood, or thermoplastics, which are then used to form a joint. 

    This creates a strong and stable product which is why it is one of the most widely used applications in the manufacturing industry. Everything from cars to aerospace vehicles to consumer electronics uses welding. 

    Welding processes

    There are many kinds of welding processes, such as: 

    • Plasma arc welding 
    • Laser beam welding 
    • Gas metal arc welding 
    • Electroslag 
    • Atomic hydrogen welding (recently replaced by metal inert gas, or MIG, welding) 
    • Fluxed-core arc welding 

    Most industries use welding at some point during production. If you are a small- to mid-sized manufacturer looking to automate your welding processes, you’ve come to the right place. A welding system and controller will help you achieve your production goals. 


    Why do you need a welding controller? 

    Welding controllers do exactly as their name implies: they control welding operations. Similar to a robot controller, they manage the timing and motion control of the welding machine. 

    If you want to start automating welding in your facility, then you need the entire system for it to work. For some jobs, a spot welder or pedestal welder would be suitable. Other jobs may require a larger system like a robotic weld cell. 

    Benefits of robotic welding 

    Robotic welding can transform your production process. By utilizing a robotic welding system, be it a spot welding machine or a robotic weld cell, you can experience the following benefits: 

    • Increase product quality: Consistent, clean, and precise welds will not only improve product quality, but also reduce the cost of defective products caused by faulty welds. 
    • Increase productivity: Robotic welding machines have a higher output since they can work day and night, increasing your throughput and capacity. 
    • Reduce lead time: An increase in productivity means your product is placed in the hands of your customer sooner. 
    • Improve workplace safety: Welding is among the highest-risk occupations in the construction and manufacturing industries. A robotic welder can easily handle the job without putting a human life at risk. 
    • Reduce labor turnover: The skills gap that plagues the manufacturing industry makes it difficult to find the right person for the job. Automating your welding processes will eliminate this problem, allowing you to focus on improving output and capacity. 

    As you can see, having welding systems on your production line is well worth the investment.
