More About Welding Assistant
Combined to our Astro-53, the Robotic Welding Assistant kit represents our vision of a real collaborative application for a cobot. Instead of working closely to human workers, the Robotic Welding Assistant works in symbiosis with the welder, therefore facilitating the process of welding on irregular metal parts.
The Welding Assistant is a useful third hand that maintains irregular pieces in place to help the welder. The 360° motion of the FANUC robot avoids having to turn over the part to weld all sides, and prioritizes an optimal horizontal weld configuration. The joystick allows manual control of the robot‘s position for more precision when needed. This Robotic kit is perfect for small volume productions and there are no programming skills required to operate the FANUC robot.
