In modern intelligent manufacturing production lines, more and more enterprises emphasize flexible production.
Industrial automation is a major trend in today’s manufacturing development, and the robotics industry will be a thriving one. The core of future enterprise development is automation and intelligence.
Humans will be freed from monotonous and complicated physical labor and engage in more creative work.
Automatic production lines and highly automated intelligent processing equipment have become an inevitable trend for technological transformation in small and medium-sized enterprise factories.
Single and ordinary dedicated machine tools are increasingly being replaced by standardized machine tools and flexible automated production lines in large-scale processing, such as CNC lathes, vertical machining centers, horizontal machining centers, CNC vertical lathes, CNC internal grinding machines, CNC gear grinding machines, etc.
The raw materials used in the loading and unloading may be several kilograms or even hundreds of kilograms in weight. There is also the frequent loading and unloading of small parts, and the handling of large motor casings, engine casings, and reducer casings is time-consuming and labor-intensive, directly affecting work efficiency.
The advantages of welding robots over manual welding lie in their programmability, which inevitably leads to them replacing traditional manual welding, especially in welding production where they are closely tied to us humans.
Due to their consistency, welding robots can enhance production efficiency, improve product quality, and reduce production costs from multiple aspects. For a market where product changes are frequent, the cost of readjusting and reprogramming welding robots is far less than that of readjusting fixed machine tools and training personnel.
Moreover, welding robots take on many dangerous or tedious tasks, thus avoiding many occupational diseases, injuries, and the high costs associated with them. Also, since the welding robots always complete their work in the same way, product quality is very stable, which brings definite benefits to the company.
Unlike manual welding, welding robots can work 24 hours a day without interruption, making the production efficiency of products predictable and inventory better controlled. The savings on every cost item in the total value of the product will enhance the competitive capability of robots across various markets.
Why is the value of using welding robots in enterprises greater than that of welding workers?
1. Stability and improvement in work quality, ensuring uniformity. Parameters such as current, voltage, speed, and dry elongation rate determine the outcome of the work. When using welding robots, the parameters for each weld remain constant, the quality is less influenced by human factors, the requirement for worker’s operational skills is lowered, and the quality is stable.
2. Welding robots will transform the working conditions of workers. Workers are used only for loading and unloading the workpieces, keeping them away from the welding arc, smoke, and splatter.
3. Increase in labor productivity. Welding robots do not experience fatigue; they can operate non-stop 24 hours a day. Additionally, with the continuous application of high-efficiency intelligent welding technology, the productivity of using welding robots becomes more evident.
4. Clear product cycles, making it easy to control product output. The production cycle of a welding robot is fixed, making the production planning very clear.
In summary: After understanding the advantages and value of welding robots, everyone is eager to try them. It is precisely because of these unique advantages that welding robots are loved by numerous small and medium-sized enterprises, and it is believed they have a greater development prospect for the future.
