Robotic Welding

Welding robots are the answer to the declining availability of skilled welders and the increase in production demand. One robot can be programmed to hold up to 10,000 programs in its memory, making switchover between parts simple.

Automation also leads to improved quality, consistency and efficiency. You’ll see every part coming out just like the last, enabling you to keep up with demand and reduce or eliminate rework.

Today’s robots are safe, easy to use and a valuable part of your production unit.

Robots can be programmed to hold up to 10,000 programs. The switchover is simple. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t need an immensely high volume of parts to justify automation. The quality and consistency produced in runs of even a few hundred parts can justify the robot’s expense.

Robotic programming has become more user-friendly than ever. A robot is just a piece of machinery without a skilled programmer behind it. Your welders are the programmers of tomorrow. Our training center provides the skills and hands-on experience to guide welders toward implementing automation at your facility.

We’re happy to evaluate if automation is right for your production line and help find the best solution. We’ll visit your plant and conduct an analysis to see how automation could benefit your specific production unit. Contact us to learn more.

Many people are surprised when they realize that an automation solution is likely more affordable than they think. It all depends on how many robots you need, the setup, if you require customization and any number of other variables.

OTC DAIHEN Solutions

Welding spatter is the Hans Gruber of the welding world. Simply put, it’s beads of metal that form around a weld and signal poor weld quality. OTC DAIHEN products are known for reducing or eliminating spatter for a weld that looks good and performs even better.

We make all the components of our welding solutions, so you only need to deal with one company for service and support. Also, we stand behind the quality and consistency of our products. With OTC DAIHEN, you can create welds with little to no prep and post-weld cleanup on a wide range of material thicknesses.
