The Advantages of Cobot Welding: How You Can Succeed with Deployment
October 24, 2023 | 2 PM - 3 PM
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Welding is an outstanding and hard to master craft, but unfortunately, it is becoming an increasingly lost one. Manual welding requires a trained human eye and impressive dexterity for the most complex welds. However, automated welding tools are becoming critical in helping businesses beat the lack of skilled welders and meet demand. Adding a welding tool such as a collaborative robot (cobot) to do the repetitive, heavy-lifting welds enables you to do more and produce more parts, while freeing your experienced welders to focus on more exciting and complex welds.
In this webinar, Graham Williams, Western Regional Manager, and Krista Roerty, Regional Applications Engineer from Vectis, along with Thomas Alexopoulos, Business Development Manager, from Universal Robots will cover basic considerations when getting started with cobot welding. They will go over common tips to ensure successful operations and ROI, provide insight on how to make the most of your cobot welding deployment, and share case studies of metal fab shops utilizing cobots.
