Robotic Welding Services

Existing since the early 1960s, robotic welding is a unique approach to the welding process.  Traditionally welding was either done manually or by machine-assisted; which require worker oversight which can drive up labor costs and most importantly the risk of error.

The robotic welding process differs because it requires little to no human oversight.  Specially programmed robots perform the welding in a fully automated process. With robotic welding manufacturers like us you get:

  • a highly accurate and repeatable design
  • higher throughputs than manual welding
  • increased profit margins

What Types of Robotic Welding Services Do You Need?

Depending on your application needs, you may need a specific type of robotic design services.

Different Types of Robotic Welding Processes

Robotic Arc Welding

For applications that will require high accuracy and repeatability, like car manufacturing, this robotic welding process is ideal for you.  An electric arc is created between welding units which cause the metal to react and heat both sides to their melting points. This creates a strong metallic bond once metal parts cool and form together.

Robotic Resistance Welding

The robotic resistance welding is a simple process that is highly economical.  It joins metal by use of an electric current.

Robotic Spot Welding

Similar to robotic resistance welding, this process operates on thinner pieces that resist electric currents.  This process is generally used for sheet metal frames on cars.

Robotic TIG Welding

TIG welding provides the most precise and highest quality weld.  It uses tungsten electrodes to create arcs between welding units and resists.

Robotic MIG Welding

One of the speediest welding techniques and best for simple welds uses continuously fed welding wires.

Robotic Laser Welding

By use of supercharged light particles robotic laser welding creates a highly accurate weld.  This type of robotic welding is ideal for highly intricate detailing, including jewelry making, automotive branding, and medical instrument manufacturing.  It is also perfect for welding in hard to read places.

Robotic Plasma Welding

This type of welding feeds ionized gas through a copper nozzle to produce high temperatures.  It allows for easy control and modification of weld temperatures and velocity. This type of welding is perfect for building electronics.

Robotic Welding Services at Ohio Valley Manufacturing

At Ohio Valley Manufacturing, we handle all robotic welding in-house: from design and building to checking fixtures and production.

In order to provide our customers with a cost-effective solution, we build and use material handling robots to stack parts (pick and place) from the production press. We are equipped to handle high-volume automation.

Arc/Resistance Welding Processes
  • Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding, also referred to as Gas Metal Arc Welding.
  • Projection welding uses a solid projection in the material to concentrate the current flow at a contact point which results in lower currents, forces and process times than spot welding.
  • Resistance welding is a process where heat is generated by passing current through the resistance caused by the contact between two or more metal surfaces to be joined.
  • Spot Welding
  • FCAW (Flux Core Arc Welding), this process uses similar equipment as GMAW but in place of standard solid wire uses wire consisting of a steel electrode surrounding a powder fill material.
  • GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding), also known as metal inert gas or MIG welding.
