A range of Robotic Welding machines
- Laser up to 25mm, accurately and with ‘repeatability’
- Robot welder with seven-axis arm, guaranteed quality
Robotic welding is crucial in today’s press and machining landscape. Enabling an entirely automated process, the robot handles both the welding itself and the part being welded; human operation is not involved. Of course, our team are highly trained in the programming and maintenance of our robots – and we are constantly expanding our range of robotic welding options based on the expertise and experience they continue to develop.
Robotic welding is more rare than you might think – partly due to high equipment costs, adoption of robotics for welding has been slower to take off than in some other sectors. That makes Birmingham Stopper one of your best UK options if you’re looking to make use of this technology: robotic welding increasing accuracy, repeatability, and through-put.
We have been expanding our robotic welding options since 2011, when we first purchases the Amada F1 laser. The Amada gave the Stopper the capacity to laser up to 25mm with its state-of-the-art equipment, with the speed to greatly improve productivity. Indeed, The competitiveness that the first F1 gave the Stopper meant capacity was quickly filled – necessitating the purchase of a further machine in 2012.
In 2014, yet another laser was required to meet demand – and the Amada F0 laser was deemed most suitable, particularly for the heavier gauges of metal, where demand was increasing.
We didn’t stop with lasering. In 2012, we also purchased a Yaskawa Motoman Robotic Welder. This amazing unit gave us the ability to take on substantial and complex components – with guaranteed quality and throughput, which simply would not be feasible otherwise. This first robotic welder proved to be so successful, that a second was required by 2014.
