ESAB introduced its first cobot for MIG and pulsed MIG welding applications on steel, stainless steel and aluminum alloys. The cobot enables operators to teach welding paths using a software app that runs on a standard smartphone or tablet and a “Smart Puck” to hand-guide the torch and record its position with the push of a button. The cobot features a Universal Robots UR10e industrial robot arm. Welding components include ESAB’s Aristo 500ix pulse power source, RobustFeed U82 wire feeder, air- or water-cooled torch, and accessories. A Siegmund 32-in.- by-48-in. welding table organizes components and enables moving the cobot around a shop.
