Spot Welding Robot

Spot welding robot is an industrial robot used for spot welding automation.

Spot Welding Robot

The world’s first spot welder was introduced in 1965 and is the Unimate robot launched by Unimation Corporation of the United States.

In 1987, China developed its first spot welding robot, the Huayu-I type spot welding robot.


The spot welding robot consists of a robot body, a computer control system, a teaching box and a spot welding system.

In order to adapt to the flexible working requirements, the welding robot usually uses the basic design of the articulated industrial robot.

Generally has six degrees of freedom: waist turn, boom turn, arm turn, wrist turn, wrist swing and wrist twist.

The driving method is hydraulic drive and electric drive.

Among them, the electric drive has the advantages of simple maintenance, low energy consumption, high speed, high precision and good safety, so it is widely used.

The spot welding robot performs spot welding operations in accordance with the actions, sequences and parameters specified in the teaching procedure, and the process is fully automated.

And having an interface for communicating with an external device, through which the control commands of the upper-level master and the management computer can be accepted to work.
