Trumpf Inc. released the TruArc Weld 1000 automated arc welding system. It comes with a cobot that assists in the creation of the weld program, rather than relying on values from an offline source or entering positioning data into a control. After the operator manually guides the cobot over a part, it automatically creates the program. Furthermore, the cobot control system includes templates for weld programs and parameters that cover scenarios such as different sheet thicknesses. Combined with the operating unit on the welding torch, this simplifies the task of programming the cobot.
