Robot welding is the use of mechanized programmable tools (robots), which completely automate a welding process by both performing the weld and handling the part.
Robotic welding for scaffoldings offers the following advantages to ADTO who need to change production tasks repeatedly:
- Robotic welding allows ADTO to use an available labor pool for a minimal price
Manual welding personnel are expensive and difficult to find, train, and retain. With a robotic welder you can optimize your staff by having one great welder supervising the work of several automated cells instead having to find and train a lot of welders for the job. Currently, ADTO has 8 robots for the scaffold welding.
- Higher yields and throughput
Automation can routinely place the same quality welds in the same spots, over and over again, with minimal human error, eliminating the repetitive boring jobs which could be a factor in welder turnover.
- Less post-weld cleanup
Robotic welding can be very precise allowing for less weld spattering and neater seams.
- Lower the cost of consumable materials
Filler material and weld wire are used more economically, and less wastefully, with robotic welding thereby reducing the overall cost of the scaffolds.
- Reduction in total time to market
Scaffold parts move through the system more quickly with repeatable part placement and routines set for the robotic welder, allowing for potentially increased production
