Robot Weld Cells & Automated Welding Systems

At Ergonomic Partners, we understand the challenges manufacturers face in today's competitive landscape. For decades, we've helped companies optimize their material handling processes, and now we're proud to offer a comprehensive suite of welding automation solutions.

Welding is a critical process in many industries, but it can also be labor-intensive, time-consuming, and even dangerous. Robotic welding systems offer a powerful solution to these challenges. Welding automation utilizes robots for precise, high-speed welding, boosting productivity and quality. Several robotic welding processes exist, like MIG (versatile), TIG (precision), arc (cost-effective), and laser (deep penetration).

Benefits of Welding Automation

  • Production rates: Robots work tirelessly, exceeding manual welding speeds for quicker completion and frees up skilled welders for complex projects.
  • Weld quality: Precise robotic movements ensure consistent weld parameters and minimize defects.
  • Cost efficiency: Automation reduces reliance on manual labor, lowers rework rates, and improves overall production efficiency.
  • Worker safety: Robots shield workers from exposure to welding fumes, sparks, and other hazards.
  • Product planning: Consistent cycle times allow for accurate planning and lead times.

Ergonomic Partners is your one-stop shop for all your welding automation needs. We offer a complete range of services, from initial consultation and system design to seamless integration, installation, and operator training. Let us help you unlock the full potential of welding automation and transform your welding operations.

Custom Engineered Robot Welding Cells

Let our team of robot weld engineers and mechanical design engineers set up a complete automated welding system for your facility. Our team can handle your application from start to finish. A typical custom robotic welding system would include the following:

  • Welding Fixture Design
  • Optimal Cell Layout
  • Delivery Cart/Rack Design
  • Safety System Design
  • HMI with PLC Logic for Part Type Selection
  • Weld Path Programming
  • Optional Laser Seam Tracking
  • Optional Vision System Integration

Pre-Engineered Automated Welding Systems by Yaskawa

The Yaskawa line of pre-engineered arc welding robots can be in footprints as small as 7 feet by 10 feet to as large as 13 feet by 20 feet. These cells can consist of 1, 2, or 3 robots, depending on the application. The Arcworld series of robotic work cells typically include a work positioner, table, or Ferris wheel.

Yaskawa Welding Robot Options:
  • Tip Change Box
  • Spool Kit
  • Exhaust Hood
  • Safety Fencing
  • Stack Light
  • HMI Operator Station

Fronius Robotic Welding

Fronius offers several advanced options that could benefit your weld cell applications. For example, if you have an application that requires higher production, you could upgrade from a gas-cooled system to a liquid-cooled one. Or if you have an applications that requires manual welding touch-ups, we provide an option to flip a switch on the welder allowing welders to perform manual torch welds. As an authorized Fronius robotic welding integrator, we can analyze and specify the right welder for your application.

Fronius Welding Options:
  • PMC – Pulse Multi Control allows you to achieve better results during pulse welding. It imparts less heat and reduces spattering.
  • LSC – Low Spatter Control is a process designed with a modified dip transfer arc with high stability. The welder can achieve high-quality weld seams while minimizing spattering and increasing deposition rate.
  • CMT – Cold Metal Transfer uses extremely low heat input for joining materials like steel and aluminum. It is capable of brazing galvanized metal sheets with minimal distortion.
