Robotic welding is the process of using a CNC robotic arm and automated workpiece manipulator to weld large or unwieldy parts quickly and accurately. A robotic welder is capable of repeat welding large volumes of parts with no loss of quality.
At Alpha Manufacturing, we operate a Yaskawa robotic welding cell which uses cold metal transfer technology to weld parts. Cold metal transfer welding is similar to MIG welding in that it uses an electrode to create a weld current between the arc and workpiece.
Where cold metal technology differs is from MIG is that it repeatedly and rapidly retracts the current, which in turn reduces the heat in the weld area. This creates a “drop by drop” deposit of weld material.
