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...
