Introduction to the performance requirements and system configuration of welding robots
Welding robots were first applied only in spot welding. In the early 1980s, with the development of computer technology and sensor technology, arc welding robots gradually gained popularity, especially in the last decade due to the rapid economic development in the world and fierce competition in the market. The welding automation robots used in medium and large-scale production have been unable to adapt to small-scale, multi-variety production models and have gradually been replaced by flexible welding robots. Welding robots have been greatly developed, and welding has become the largest field of industrial robot applications. One of them, welding robots have been widely used in automobiles, motorcycles, construction machinery and other fields. Of the more than 800,000 industrial robots currently in the world, more than 40% can be used for welding robots.
