This week we present arc welding for TechTuesday. That light arc welding process combines the automated welding wire feeding with the protection of the welding joint against oxidation with various gases. These technologies allow a high welding speed and a safe production with a high plant availability.
Among the arc welding processes count various proceedings, e.g. plasma welding or wolfram-inert-gas welding. The use of these technologies is comfortable and safe and therefore is likely used by producers on entry level automation. For example a previously manual fabrication of baby carriages was converted to a partly automated production. The arc welding process is now performed by the help of a KUKA flexibleCUBE.
