Welding Positioners: The Key to Safe Operation of Welding Robots

Welding positioners for robots are typically used in robotic welding production, and can also be used for manual welding. They provide accurate and reliable positioning, allowing for the workpiece to be welded in the optimal position. When working with a welding robot, technicians should first connect the wires.

The welding robot is connected to the control cabinet via two control wires. If a welding positioner is added, according to the motor of the welding positioner, an additional three or two wires should be increased.

Many users have asked why manufacturing factories cannot do without welding positioners? With everyone’s questions in mind, I will introduce this common knowledge today.

Looking at the entire Yangtze River Delta market, combined with the company’s current series of robotic welding positioners, the company has various types of welding positioners: including single-axis positioners, dual-axis positioners, and three-axis positioners, and composite welding positioners, etc. Users can choose and customize according to actual usage.

Advantages of robotic welding positioners

1. Made of high-quality profiles and steel plates, and annealed, ensuring reliable quality;

2. The rotation is driven by a servo motor, ensuring reliable positioning accuracy;

3. The reducer uses a high-precision, adjustable-speed reducer.

The function of a welding positioner is to move the welding head along a conventional track at a selected welding speed until the correct weld is achieved. The device can be used in conjunction with shifters and roller lathes to complete the welding of longitudinal joints, circular joints, and spiral joints, and can also be used for movable surface treatment, cutting, flaw detection, grinding, and painting operations.

With the rapid application of artificial intelligence technology, automatic control and information technology have been widely used in the manufacturing industry.

Robotic welding positioners are developing towards intelligence, multi-functionality, large-scale, integration, high precision, and high reliability. Welding positioners have become the equipment of choice for many companies in the Yangtze River Delta.

During the welding process, the workpiece cannot be rotated for welding, and the welder must crawl for welding. Sometimes it is necessary to flip larger workpieces, which brings great difficulty to the welders. Their personal safety cannot be guaranteed, and the risk in the welding process will increase.

If a company uses a welding positioner, these problems can be well solved. The robotic welding positioner can flip from any angle. This way, the workpiece can rotate to the position required by the welder at any time. Since the welder does not need to stand up to make welding workpieces, the workload of the welder is reduced, greatly improving the safety of the welder and ensuring life safety to a certain extent.

In summary, robotic welding positioners have quietly become key equipment for factories in the Yangtze River Delta manufacturing industry to implement intelligent manufacturing upgrades. They are designated as welding auxiliary equipment in the field of welding production.

In the past decade, welding positioners have made significant progress in industries such as automobile manufacturing and metalworking, and have gained widespread practical applications.

For companies, using welding positioners can shorten welding auxiliary time, increase labor productivity, reduce worker labor intensity, ensure and improve the quality of welding products, and fully utilize the performance of various welding processes.
