Full-service sheet metal manufacturer, Malton Laser, has increased its welding capacity by 30% following its investment in an advanced robotic welder.

Malton Laser invested in the two station Panasonic Tawers MAG 1600WG Welding Robot System in response to increased demand for precision welding projects.

The innovative robotic welder will undertake jobs for a number of high-profile clients, initially completing projects for one of the UK’s leading boiler manufacturers.  

The machine has the ability to weld four times faster than current methods, speeding up and streamlining production, while reducing lead times for the client. The automated nature of the new equipment also means that engineers in Malton Laser’s fabrication department will have the capacity to focus their expertise on other areas of the business.

Charles Corner, managing director of Malton Laser, said: “The introduction of the two station Panasonic Tawers MAG 1600WG Welding Robot System is an incredibly exciting opportunity for Malton Laser, and with the ability to increase capacity by up to 30%, the investment is sure to assist us in continuing to grow to become one of the leadin sheet metal manufacturers in the industry. Members of the Malton Laser team have been selected for specialist training to ensure the welder is in capable hands and performing to the best of its ability, producing high-quality weld finishes for our customers’ products.

“As we strive to consistently provide first-class results for our clientele, we are dedicated to keeping up with the latest developments in automation technology, and utilising it to become leaders in our field.”

Malton Laser specialises in providing a full sheet metalwork service, from laser cutting and pressing to fabricating, powder coating and assembly.
