Mechanised and partially mechanised welding is a smart solution for making recurring and standardised welding processes more efficient. With supporting tools such as welding tractors or automated torch guidance, simple processes become reliable and thus process-safe. Complex and time-consuming reworking is eliminated or reduced to a minimum. Hard automation solutions are excellently suited for companies for which an investment in the considerably more expensive robot technology is not worthwhile or who would like to start with automation. ABICOR BINZEL offers smart solutions for mechanised and partially mechanised welding in addition to the proven welding torches and associated wear and spare parts. Welcome to hard automation!
Which advantages are offered to the welder with hard automation?
Of course, no welder wants to give up their job. The term "automation" initially has a negative connotation and gives rise to fears that a machine is responsible for the loss of a job. In contrast to the fully automated process, hard automation supports the welder with monotonous work and therefore unilateral strain. Welding tractors, for example, prevent the welder from adopting a forced position when welding very long seams over a long period of time. In fact, a welding tractor ensures that several metres can be welded at a time - without any loss of quality, without fatigue and without pain due to one-sided posture.
What are the advantages of operating with hard automation?
Whenever recurring and monotonous work is reliably taken over by mechanised or partially mechanised "little helpers", this increases productivity and quality. Supporting tools such as automated torch guidance or a welding tractor make it possible to weld for longer in one piece. With consistent quality at all times. If a welding process can be carried out continuously, without stopping in between, the weld seam has the same quality throughout and no longer needs to be reworked. Every seam is in the right place. Rejects are reduced to an absolute minimum. The bottom line is that this saves time and money.
