Robotic Welding

Robotic welding is an automated welding technique that relies on the use of robots to undertake the welding process. In addition, the robot also handles the material, removing the need for human involvement and increasing both speed and safety.

Commonly, robotic welders use an arc welding technique, producing precise, narrow weld bonds in a range of materials including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, brass, copper and cast iron. Robotic welding is a common fixture within the automotive industry and ensures uniform welds, a high level of accuracy and less material waste. It also means that the welding process can be performed very quickly, making it well-suited to high-volume production.

However, due to the automated nature of robotic welding, there is little room for flexibility, meaning that any requirement that differs from the robot's programming may be difficult to accomplish. Robotic welding is very much suited to repetitive work - variety within the production process may be more difficult to accommodate.

Quick Post: Project Details

To help you to get the best possible response, prices and right type of suppliers in contact with you, please be as specific as you can. For example by letting the potential supplier know if there could be future work available might produce better quotes.
You can add up to 5 parts in this section. However, if you have more you can always upload a bill of materials file above or discuss this with your sourcing account manager when they contact you.

What is the best method for suppliers to contact you?

We will be putting suppliers in contact with you directly so they can quote your project. Some suppliers may have questions so they can quote you correctly. Additionally, most suppliers usually like to follow up to see how they got on and all we ask is that you provide them with feedback, whether they have won the project or not. With this in mind what is the best method to reach you on (you can choose both)?
