Robot-based welding of aluminum components
Aluminum is a lightweight material that is indispensable in modern manufacturing. In comparison to other metals, aluminum has a lower density and thus a lower weight, but also a very low melting point. Compared to steel, the material has four times the thermal conductivity and twice the thermal expansion. The oxide layer that aluminum forms on the surface in combination with oxygen (air) can be problematic for welding.
