Welders are able to focus on higher value tasks when repetitive welding jobs are automated.
Robotic welding allows you to maximize capacity. A robot can be welding a part while the previous part is being unloaded and new components reloaded, significantly reducing downtime. It eliminates the challenge of finding skilled welders, reduces labor costs and improves efficiency.
Welders are like artists. They don’t enjoy welding hundreds of small or simple parts each week, they want to work on larger and more complex weldments.
Manual welding is an area with a very high degree of repetitive motion injuries, this can result in staff turnover and associated costs. The recent ‘Wellbeing and Productivity at Work’ research highlights a ROI of around 5:1 for investment in wellbeing and safety. Note 1.
Robotic welding is an investment in safety, as well as productivity and quality.
