Welding Robot Application for The Sheet Metal Industry

Mr. Fong Swee Hin
Genetech Sdn. Bhd.
Robotics is a hot topic these days! Many cutting edge technologies are connected with the field of robotics, like machine learning and AI, IIOT, man-machine-collaboration or autonomous mobile systems. Intelligent robots are a crucial part of the digitalization of the manufacturing industry. The global manufacturing industry is facing big challenges however, like rapidly changing consumer trends, shortage of resources, shortage of skilled workers, aging society, and demand for local productions. The challenges that faced by the manufacturing industry have accelerated the demand for industrial robots due to the ongoing trend toward automation and continued innovative technical improvements in industrial robots. Between 2012 and 2017, the average robot sales increase was at 19% per year (CAGR). The number of robot installations had never increased so strongly before. One of the robot application is used in the welding process. Robot welding is the use of mechanized programmable tools (robots), which completely automate a welding process by both performing the weld and handling the part. Robot welding is one of the main application of the industrial robot. In this talk, the speaker will share the application and experience of welding robot for the sheet metal industry.
