Big equipment may mean big risks, but is there an opening for fabricators to invest in their own large-capacity machines?
If you can measure it, track it, and display it, you can improve the performance of your welding operations.
Choosing the right contact tip can make all the difference for pulsed MIG applications in the automotive world
NASA’s primary center for atmospheric flight research is also home to a hardworking FAB shop.
The Netherlands was once home to many bike manufacturers, but labor costs drove them to offshore. A new startup looks to automate the process and bring production home.
Improvements to the welding process are often felt beyond the welding cell in upstream or downstream operations such as tooling, forming, weld prep, rework, inspection and post-weld cleaning. Measuring the effects of new welding processes or equipment may require input from other areas of the operation due to the potential wide-reaching impacts on the whole manufacturing process.
The lead VERA-enabled robot has a disc in its gripper. It shares this information with the secondary VERA robot, which has selected one of the correct nuts for this part and is positioning it onto the welder to be welded onto the disc. . Photo – Tim Jacobs
System automatically tracks critical welding parameters and makes the necessary adjustments for quality welds.
As automotive use of high-strength steels grows, so does the understanding of welding them. Welding thin sheet and production welding of galvanized steel are key challenges.
