Robotics Automation for the Wire Industry

Highlighting the important reasons supporting the deployment of robotic automation technology in the manufacturing sector, this paper presents robotics as a contributor to improving manufacturing efficiencies. It reviews the gradual shift from an industrial to a service-based economy, resulting in technical labor shortages, while detailing the benefits of using robots. The latest robot models handling material faster and more accurately than a human, at an affordable cost for the small to mid size business are featured, and the easy and inexpensive customization associated with robots, as well as energy savings is mentioned. The paper also covers numerous robot applications in the wire industry, and includes a chart showing robot sales accounted by the North American robotic companies.

Wolf Robotics Introduces Welding Robots with Grinding Capability at Fabtech

Finish grinding of weld beads by robotics. Fort Collins, CO: Robotics can now be used to both weld and grind when finish grinding is required. Previously, a part that was welded and needed the weld bead to be finished smooth or the weld spatter removed, required a manual operation or relocation of the part to another cell for further processing. Now, through the use of a tool changer, and new...
