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."
