INNOVATION THROUGH AUTOMATION
Heavy Deposition Welding
About Heavy Deposition Welding
In the heavy fabrication industry creating welded parts requires welds that have a heavy deposition rate to create stronger components. Making these heavy deposition welds are slow and time-consuming. However, with robotic automation systems, using a tandem welding process, heavy weld times can be drastically reduced.
Applications for Heavy Deposition Welding
Heavy deposition welding applications include:
- Industrial-scale agriculture and mining equipment construction
- The construction of heavy frames, large weldments, power generation systems and structural steel assemblies
Reasons for Automating Heavy Deposition Welding
Fully automated welding systems for thick and thin-gauge materials come with many benefits. Here are some of its advantages:
Decreased production time
There is a precise amount of base metals during heavy deposition welding, requiring no composition adjustment of the welding wire. Having to make no adjustments during the automated welding process decreases production time and cost.
The robotic welding process allows industrial factories to very quickly and efficiently produce welded materials at a rate that isn’t achievable by typical human labor standards.
Due to the slower speed for heavy deposition welding processes and consistent robotic control, there is an increase in durability of the welding seam with automated welding systems.
Reduced Manual Labor
Reduced human labor numbers save money in terms of training programs, safety, worker’s compensation and benefits packages. As well as securing skilled workers during labor shortages.
