What training is needed for robotic welding?

To be proficient in robotic welding, individuals need to learn how to program welding robots. This includes learning how to adjust wire feeders, input welding commands and modify power sources. Additionally, they need to be trained on determining the movement of the robot’s arms, setting the position of the positioner and managing the placement and activation of the welding torch.

I usually work through a distributor. Can I still attend training?

We suggest talking to your distributor to determine how they’d like you to attend training. If you aren’t sure who your distributor is, contact us, and we’ll help you out.

Is lunch provided? What’s the dress code?

Students receive a 1-hour lunch break. Lunch will not be provided. Proper welding attire is required at all times while on the premises, which includes leather closed-toe shoes.
