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.


Robotic arc welding with KUKA robots: always one step ahead

Robotic 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 weld 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 with a KUKA machines and throughout the entire value chain in robotic 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.

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

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

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

KUKA offers ideal solutions for all robotic welding requirements – from the use of robotic welders with high path accuracy to preconfigured arc welding robot cells and fully-automated welding systems. A wide range of workpiece positioners, special software and linear units round out the six-axis robotic 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 robotic arc 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 welder at all times.

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