As manufacturing sees a continuing decline in available skilled labour, innovative machinery becomes more necessary to keep companies moving. For the welding field, Red-D-Arc Welderentals has just introduced a bold solution: the BotX-Welder. This new welding robot works in conjunction with a collaborative robot arm, or “cobot”, manufactured by Universal Robots; this arm is controlled through the Hirerobotics application, which is far easier to use than a standard automatic robotic welding machine teach pendant is.
Expansive library of welding routines
In addition to this robot arm, the BotX-Welder comes with a Miller Electric XMT350 MPa MIG welder and S74 MPa Plus wire feeder, as well as an MIG torch and a welding fabrication. Most importantly, this welding robot has an expansive library of welding routines, with weld parameters to fit virtually any application. The device can automatically monitor and record welding through cloud connectivity, through which users can view weld data from anywhere in the world if they remain connected to the network.
Red-D-Arc knows that new technologies often bring high costs and risks. With the BotX-Welder, the company eliminates the risk of failed robotic welding implementations with a pay-as-you-go system, charging users only by the productive hour. This way, customers can try out the welding robot, use it only as required, and get rid of it when work slows down. This is both easier and more cost-efficient than the usual hiring and letting go of personnel.

The number of skilled welders in the labour market is decreasing these days, so businesses feel pressure to adapt. Staying ahead in technology is the way to surviving in the manufacturing world and being prosperous. Red-D-Arc dedicates itself to supporting its customers through industry shifts and keeping them not only in business, but ahead of their competition. With the BotX-Welder, companies that rely on welding get a fast output rate and a very high weld quality with far less dependency on skilled workers.
