Automated arc welding

Arc welding is the most widely used joining process. We at KUKA offer a wide range of automation components, function packages, robots and cells as standard products that are quickly available. From MIG welding to MAG welding and on to TIG welding.

Automated welding with KUKA robots: always one step ahead

Arc welding is one of the most popular welding processes in industrial settings because of its speed and ability to process many metallic materials. In addition to conventional welding functions, we at KUKA – as a thought leader and trailblazer in the field of automation – also offer long-term security of investment through the smart capability of integration into the digital and networked world of production. The result is greater effectiveness and flexibility throughout the entire value chain in industrial welding.

Learn about the different arc welding processes 

Gas metal-arc welding is an arc welding process in which an arc is ignited between an electrode and the component, fusing the workpiece 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 seam quality and a high welding speed.

Technical expertise, years of experience and a broad product portfolio for welding automation – with KUKA it is all from a single source

High-quality automation: KUKA enables the customer to get involved in the trial welds in order to develop the best possible application.

Welding robots, positioners and welding cells:
Standardized modular components that can be ideally combined

KUKA offers ideal solutions for all welding automation requirements – from the use of individual robots with high path accuracy to preconfigured welding cells and fully-automated welding systems. A wide range of workpiece positioners, welding technology software and linear units round out the portfolio for perfectly coordinated overall packages and optimized production at your company.

Cooperation with major manufacturers of welding equipment

KUKA robots achieve the best welding quality with the appropriate welding equipment from our strong partners such as Binzel, ESAB, EWM, Fronius, Kemppi, Lincoln, Lorch, Megmeet, Migatronic, Miller or SKS.

The welding equipment is easily and quickly connected to the robot controller via a field bus interface, such as EtherCAT. In this way, the full range of functions is available to the operator at all times.

The arc welding of challenging workpieces and diverse combinations of materials is enormously simplified with welding positioners.
