A robot’s extreme accuracy and repeatability leads to quicker welding times, this decreases labour costs at the same time as increases productivity. After labour one of the largest costs in any welding department is consumables. Robots are programmed exactly when to stop welding and when to move on, without overusing these materials. Typically a welding robot will save approximately 15% on welding gas and wire consumables.
Perfection is not achievable with an manual welder welding repeated parts, it will always result in some type of inconsistency due to human error. With robotic welding, you will greatly reduce the need for rework as being programmed correctly, there is absolute certainty the welds will be the exact same high-quality weld every time.
By investing in robotics for welding, the repetitive, tedious tasks can be given to the robots, freeing employees to work in other areas of the business with more skilled responsibilities. With a robotic welder at work, the robot operator is more separated from the welding fumes and arc. This results in less exposure to hazardous risks for your employees.
