The definition of the term “robotic” has evolved over time to reflect the change from traditional industrial robotics arms, to also include many other types of mechanical systems, including collaborative robots. Like the articulated arms that preceded them, collaborative robots and their supporting technologies are having a major impact on the metal fabrication sector. The systems themselves continue to evolve to support higher payloads and greater accuracy making them even more suitable for welding and metal fabrication applications.
Topics covered in this session include:
- Collaborative Robots and Metal Fabrication
- Machine Tending (CNC, Injection Molding, etc.)
- Welding and Soldering
- Material Removal (Grinding, Cutting, Deburring, Milling, etc.)
- Case Studies
