Augmentus' Welding Robotic System is a solution suited for different types of welding such as Arc Welding and many more.

Existing Challenges in Welding Automation 

Manufacturers dealing with welding processes often encounter several limitations and struggles with conventional robot programming:

  • Complex Geometry

    Welding is a common method for joining components with intricate shapes and edges, leading to the complexity and time-consuming nature of traditional robot programming. Developing and fine-tuning the code to address variations in edges and shapes poses a considerable challenge, demanding specialized skills and significant man-hours. Additionally, conventional automation faces hurdles in adapting to changes and grapples with precision issues, which can impede its effectiveness in such welding applications.

  • Difficulty in Handling Variability/Deviations 

    Deviations in manufacturing hinder accuracy, and inaccurate welds may lead to weakened joints, structural inconsistencies, increased cracking susceptibility, and reduced load-bearing capacity, compromising overall integrity and performance; conventional programming struggles to address variations effectively, resulting in inconsistent outcomes.

  • High Mix Automation 

    Companies often look for ways to do High Mix or small run batches, and they require frequent and new configurations and programming. Whenever a change in the welding process is required, robots need to be taken offline for reprogramming. This can impact production efficiency and increase overall lead times.

  • 5 days 

    Is the average downtime needed for robot programming 

  • >70%  

    Of lifetime cost of using robots is software and programming-related
