New Technology Resolves Problems With Robotic Welding Aluminum and High-Tensile Steel

Posted by OTC DAIHEN on September 29, 2022

In response to the global trend toward carbon neutrality, materials are being shifted to high-tensile materials that are thinner and stronger and aluminum that is lightweight for weight reduction in products.

However, there is one common problem when using high-tensile materials or aluminum, it becomes difficult to weld joint shapes because of the variation in the joint gap.

To solve this challenge, OTC DAIHEN has evolved its exclusive robotic welding technology, creating Synchro-feed Evolution with Push Arc welding mode.

Retrofitting a Robot Welder for Higher Production While Saving Time & Costs

Posted by OTC DAIHEN on August 15, 2022

The concept of retrofitting current robotic systems has taken on greater popularity in the last year as manufacturers seek more affordable and faster options to help maintain a competitive advantage in demanding markets.

This is especially true with welding robots. Upgrading and retrofitting with new welding power sources vs. replacing welding robots often saves time and costs.

Employees do not need to be trained on how to operate new robots. Investment into new robots can be phased in over time. Spare parts that are stocked for the robots can still be used.

The Myths No One Is Talking About with Cobot Welding – Until Now

Posted by OTC DAIHEN on May 5, 2022

“A cobot welder is the answer to our production needs!” 

Not so fast, our welding experts at OTC DAIHEN will tell you.

While collaborative robots have been a game-changing technology for various industries and applications, cobot welding introduces unique challenges that must be considered before you purchase.

A cobot welder, which combines a collaborative robot with a welder power source and a torch, is often thought of as an easy, less expensive way to automate welding than a production welding system.

However, many are not speaking out about the safety and production issues that are occurring with cobot welding - until now. In this article, we uncover the myths and speak the truth about cobot welding.
