Automated arc welding
Arc welding is the most widely used joining process. KUKA offers a wide range of automation components, function packages, robots and cells as standard products that are easy-to-use and quickly available. From MIG welding to MAG welding and on to TIG welding.
Learn about the different arc welding processes
Gas metal-arc welding is an arc welding process in which an electric arc is ignited between an electrode and the component, fusing the components and, if applicable, a filler metal. Here, a distinction is made between several methods. Among these, MIG/MAG welding and TIG welding are the most used methods for the process. These differ in the type of gas that is used and the choice of materials. They impress with maximum weld quality and a high weld speed.

Strong KUKA partners for arc welding
Our robots achieve the best possible welding quality with the appropriate welding equipment from our strong partners such as Fronius, Kemppi, Miller, Lorch, Lincoln, EWM, SKS, ESAB and Migatronic.
The welding equipment is connected to the robot controller quickly and easily via a field bus interface, such as EtherCAT (present in every KR C4 controller). In this way, the full range of functions is available to the operator at all times.
