Robotics / Automated Equipment
Precision through Automation!
Why Use Automation/Robotic Welding?
Automation International Inc. is a leading manufacturer of robotic welding system integrator's for large resistance spot welding applications, parts handling and transfer of products. A good example is the use of automation and robotics in a Wheel Rim Manufacturing line. On average an automated, robotic line will produce about 600 rims per hour for passenger car wheel rims and between 300 and 400 per hour for truck wheel rims, depending upon the size. This process takes a flat piece of material (steel, aluminum, etc.) cuts it and handles it all the way through to the finished product. Although robotics were first used in the U.S. over 50 years ago, it wasn't until the last 20 to 25 years that they started being used for spot welding in the automotive industry and the number of applications is still growing. Just recently Robotic arc welding has begun to grow very quickly and commands a large portion of industrial robot applications. Robotic Welding Systems are a technology that has helped many original equipment manufacturers increase their accuracy, throughput and their ROI. Although the high equipment costs slowed down the initial growth, now that the numbers are in, the ROI is showing major cost savings, production numbers that are off-the-charts and much more.
Our Engineers and Technicians have been schooled and trained and are experts in the field on all major brands of robots. Our Service Technicians also have the same knowledge so they can troubleshoot while in the field or from the plant.
Custom Designed and Built for your Specific Application
WHAT IS ROBOTIC WELDING?
Robotic/Automated Welding is the use of mechanized programmable tools (robots) which completely automate a welding process by both performing the weld and handling the part. Gas metal arc welding, although often automated, are not the same since a human operator may prepare the material to be welded.
Robotic Welding Systems are commonly used for the resistance spot welding and arc welding in high production applications, such as the automotive industry.
The many benefits of robotic resistance welding have proven to help original equipment manufacturers to increase accuracy, repeat-ability, and throughput.
