Autoline specialises in Robotic Welding for the manufacturing industry, bringing world-leading robot brands and the latest welding technologies to New Zealand.
Manual welding is a process that is dull, dirty and has a high degree of repetitive motion injuries. With the technology that is available today, most welding processes that are performed manually can be performed with robotic automation. The investment of robotic welding helps manufacturers to overcome the labour shortage, demands for increased production, and provides consistent high-quality welds.
From industrial robot welding to collaborative robot welding systems, Autoline can offer a solution to meet your welding requirements. Whether it be heavy duty welding or welding small parts, MIG or Aluminium welding, our systems can be customised to suit.

Key Benefits of Robotic Welding by Autoline

Autoline supply everything manufacturers need for robotic welding systems, we are a single-source robot welding solutions provider. Robot manipulators, welding power sources, wire feeders, torches and consumables, plus robot operator training and support are included in complete robot welding solutions to make this advanced manufacturing technology produce for you and your company.

You can count on faster cycle times and consistent quality over manual welding from our welding robot systems. In a typical welding robot application, one robot will do the equivalent output of 3-4 full-time employees, this allows employees to be up-skilled and trained in how to program, operate and maintain the advanced machines.

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.

Industrial Robot Welder Vs Collaborative Robot Welder

Industrial Robot Welder

Industrial robots are high performers, increasing production output of four manual welders, whilst also increasing quality and consistency. They are a valuable investment that will reduce production costs for welding companies that deal with high volume production welding, requiring high speed and accuracy.

Unlike collaborative robots, industrial robots do not have integrated safety and they require safety guarding and measures to stop the robot when employees become at risk.

Key Benefits:

  • Higher automation percentage.
  • Ideal for large batch component production.
  • Operators must stay outside the robot’s safety fencing during operation.
  • Training robot operators are required to programme new work pieces.
  • Set-up and implementation time-consuming.
  • Heavy and stationary position in the workshop.
  • Takes up space owing to safety guard and large fixtures.

Collaborative Robot Welder

A collaborative robot welder is a cost-effective way to get started with welding automation. It is a flexible solution that allows manufacturers to increase their capability quickly and easily when welding low-volume, high mix components.

Collaborative robots can have humans working alongside them in close proximity unlike industrial robots, although they usually have a lighter load capacities. Still, a collaborative robot is fast and provides perfect accuracy on repeat.

Key Benefits

  • Cheaper alternative for companies wanting to automate parts of their production.
  • Improves small batch component production.
  • Operators can work along side robot during operation.
  • Quick and Easy to teach and programme new work pieces.
  • Easy set up, can start welding on the first day of installation.
  • Mobile and flexible, can be relocated to other workstations in your production.
  • Small footprint in workshop.

Robot Software

Offline Robot Programming

By programming robot functions in a virtual, offline environment (on a computer), Offline Robot Programming eliminates the need for robots to be taken off production, greatly improving productivity and the bottom line.
