  • Sure, cobots are lightweight: the largest UR10 robot is under 29 kg/64 lbs, so they’re easy to pick up and move from one process to another. But they’re no lightweights when it comes to heavy-duty processes like welding. In fact, there’s already a range of cobot welding systems to choose from. Surprised? Don’t be. It’s just one more smart application for these flexible, cost-effective, and easy-to-program automation tools.

    The flexibility and ease-of-programming of cobot-based welding systems make them especially well-suited for low-volume/high-mix environments, as well as custom or small-template welding processes. But with high accuracy and repeatability, these systems can also handle long runs with consistent quality. Welding tasks can be programmed in as little as half-an-hour by workers who have no previous experience, and programs can be saved and reused, saving the expense of trained robot programmers. Lightweight cobot welders can be mounted on tabletops, hung from ceilings, or installed into existing welding booths, offering more flexibility than manual welders or traditional fixed robots. Several companies have already announced cobot welding systems.

  • Having worked in industry for 10 years, Jesper Larsen decided to go it alone.  In April 2016, he set up Vivo Production, invested in two CNC machines and single-handedly established a very successful subcontracting business.  Output ranged from batch production through to prototypes, typically for the wind power and offshore industries.

    As his reputation grew, so did his order intake. Jesper Larsen began to struggle keeping pace with demand. The purchase of another CNC machine was already planned so he wanted to avoid the cost of bringing more people into the business, at least in the short term. The helping-hand he chose instead was a Universal Robot UR10.
