Arc Welding Applications

High accuracy and repeatability for ultimate arc welding results

For the most efficient arc welding solution, you need high accuracy paired with high repeatability. Robots need to be able to access the narrowest spaces, which means combining features like a small footprint with a long reach. Industrial robots are ideal for industries in which arc welding applications play a major role. Their generous payload capacities allow you to mount a wide range of equipment. Cables and motors are fully enclosed to allow the robot complete freedom of movement.

Even better than a human hand

Robots combine excellent freedom of movement with extremely high repeatability. Slim wrists and arms are not only capable of accessing narrow spaces, but are also strong enough to carry heavy torches and welding utilities.
The benefits of a hollow wrist

Hollow wrist design routes services through the robot arm to reduce wear and tear on the expensive welding cables. Through-arm cabling also allows cable interference to be simulated offline.
A narrow space specialist

Slim wrist robots are well suited for arc welding processes involving hard-to-access spaces. They are used extensively in TIER 1 manufacturing for car axle, bracket, seat and exhaust welding, as well as to produce goods such as beams and cranes and base business goods such as tanks, tubes and pipes, etc.
Just plug and weld

FANUC robots can seamlessly integrate with almost all weld packages, allowing quick torch, wire feeder and dresspack installations as well as plug-and-play detection of welding power sources thanks to in-built libraries. Users can simply select and weld.
Arc welding with vision

Integrated vision allows robots to recognise and locate objects, weld seams and part features, as well as performing post-weld checks or inspections. This easy-to-use plug-and-play technology helps improve productivity whatever the welding application.
Automatic TCP alignment

Our smart arc welding system can automatically adjust Tool Center Point (TCP) during torch maintenance to maximise system uptime and increase productivity by maintaining consistent weld seams.
