Ask a Question

we are looking to add a automated spot weld center using turn table application requiring us to spot weld 3 brackets to housing 11 spot welds. my question is I received quotes for the centers one with Daihen/OTC/Nachi and another using Fanuc robots. I was told the Nachi would be better for the operation more speed and would be better overall for the application. can get any comments or recommendations on this .

NACHI is a fine robot with many options supporting spot welding. It shares it's robot controller design with our OTC DAIHEN robots. FANUC is also a fine robot. Is your application using an arm-mounted spot gun or are you carrying the part to the spot welders? That answer would likely change my recommendation significantly.
