Automatic welders are used in many of today's manufacturing industries.
Everything, from the cars on the road to the tanks in the factory, is made using automatic welders.
Welding is a joining method where metal materials are melted together to form a connection, and if high-quality welding is performed, the strength of the weld can be equivalent to that of the original metal. However, when welding is done by hand, there is inevitably a difference in the welding finish depending on the skill of each person and the welding conditions.
Automatic welders are widely used to avoid such problems.
Automatic welders are widely used in the automotive industry. Automobile bodies, of which many are manufactured each year, are very time-consuming to weld by hand, which increases costs and is inefficient.
Therefore, automated welding robots are used to weld the bodies.
Also, it is very difficult to weld very large tanks by hand, so automatic welders are used to weld steel plates together to produce large tanks.
As a result, the use of automatic welders provides higher quality and saves time.
There are many types of Automatic welders, but the most commonly used are robot welding and submerged arc welding.
Robots, as the name implies, weld with a welder torch attached to the end of a robotic arm. However, most robotic welding is specialized for spot welding and cannot do can manufacturing and other operations.
For this reason, the most common use of robot welding is for welding automobile bodies. Because spot welding can be performed continuously on the same spot of a fixed part, it is very efficient. Also, because it is a robot, the robot's operation can be changed through programming called teaching.
This allows the same robot to be used for different types of automobiles.
Submerged arc welding is a type of arc welding in which welding wire and flux are supplied automatically.
Arc welding is very suitable for welding thick steel plates, etc., and is often used in can manufacturing and other operations. Unlike welding, arc welding can automate high-quality welding work, and is therefore widely used for welding pressure vessels.
