Arc Welders and Robotic Welding Systems

Goals

To find five (5) industries that are using arc welders and five (5) industries that are using robotic welding systems. Briefly describe each one and provide 2-3 examples of companies within each industry that are using these welders, as well as their reasons for doing so. Focus on the US and Canada.

Early Findings

One industry using arc welders is construction, and the automotive industry is using robotic welding. Initial research found that welding is a highly-skilled trade, and as such construction companies work with independent welders for projects that involve arc welding. Robotic welding is used in car manufacturing for high-precision, repetitive, or dangerous jobs.

Arc Welding in the Construction Industry

Robotic Welding Systems in the Automotive Industry

  • The automotive industry is responsible for "the production, wholesaling, retailing, and maintenance of motor vehicles."
  • General Motors is one US automotive company using robotic welding in car manufacturing since welding can be repetitive and dangerous.
  • Though not headquartered in either the US or Canada, Volvo and BMW are two additional automotive companies using robotic welding in their manufacturing plants, including those located in the US. They opt for robotic welding when jobs require "high-precision" or could be "too difficult for humans."
