What are the Advantages of Robot Welding Over Manual Welding?

When it comes to welding the technology has certainly evolved by leaps and bounds in the past few decades. What used to take weeks at the hands of a human welder can now be done in a fraction of the time by a robot welder for faster results. There are some distinct advantages to using robot welders over human welders and knowing them may help you make your mind up about using these machines.

The first advantage is that you do not have to pay professional welders for their time. You have purchased your robot welder and that is that, all you need to do now is maintain the machine and keep it in proper working order. Human welders are expensive, hard to find, and can often be difficult to train as you may need to retrain from job to job, your robot welder is programmed for fast work that costs less.

Another benefit is that you can garner higher output than with a human welder. Robots do not get tired, they do not need breaks, they also are not going to quit if the job gets boring, tedious, or becomes too laborious. High welder turnover is often the result of repetitive jobs that can cause physical damage to the welder and can become boring.

Still another benefit is that there is less cleanup. Robotic welding is more precise and therefore there is going to be less waste and less clean up and spatter than with a human welder. Yet another benefit is that you can also help to reduce the costs of consumables. Your robot welder is going to be more precise and use less material to do the same job than a human welder may use.

Lastly, you can reduce the overall time to market. A robot welder is going to be faster, more precise, and more likely to produce repeatable results than a human welder. These are all great reasons to consider robot welding if you have not already done so.
