Aluminium welding

As a material, aluminium has many advantages in processing, but demands special knowledge and skills. At KUKA, we are the perfect partner for implementing complex welding procedures such as aluminium welding. We accompany you throughout the entire process and equip you with robots, welding cells and appropriate software.

Robot-based welding of aluminium components 

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

This is exactly where KUKA comes in as your trustworthy partner in automation. We possess many years of experience in the field of automated welding. We equip you with the necessary robotics solution and offer you comprehensive services for optimising your welding processes. From MIG and TIG welding to spot welding and on to laser welding and brazing, our broad portfolio covers virtually every process.

Welding aluminium: quicker, easier, further

Aluminium offers high strength in relation to its density, which makes it a popular material for lightweight construction. This property makes the use of aluminium interesting for practically every industry:

  • Automotive industry

    • Body
    • Hoods
    • Chassis
    • Tailgates
    • Doors
  • Transportation and traffic industry

    • Aircraft
    • Rail vehicle construction and streetcars
    • Bicycle and motorcycle frames
    • Commercial vehicles (body structures such as platform gates)
  • Electromobility

    • Heat exchangers

    • Battery compartments

    • Chassis
