5 myths you might not know about robotic welding systems

Robotic welding systems provide speed, accuracy, and repeatability in many fabrication and manufacturing applications. The opportunity for savings is a primary reason many companies make the investment in automation.

However, it takes more than just installing a system to have a profitable automated welding operation. Neglecting other important steps in the process — preventive maintenance, operator training, and the use of complementary equipment called peripherals, for example — can result in a system that is not performing as well as it should. A robotic welding system is only as strong as its weakest link; therefore, a less efficient process can lead to more expenses via rework and downtime in the long run.

On this link you can find some common myths about robotic welding systems that can keep a company from fully maximizing its return on investment (ROI) and advice to address those misconceptions.
