CUTTING AND WELDING
Robotic Plasma Cutting
Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses (or sometimes other materials) using a plasma torch. In this process, an inert gas (in some units, compressed air) is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time, an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the cut.

Robotic welding is becoming increasingly attractive for job shops and contract manufacturers because experienced welders can oversee the productivity of more than one robotic welder at a time. Robotic welding offers the following advantages to manufacturers who need to change production tasks repeatedly:
1. Robotic welding allows you to use an available labor pool for a minimal price
Manual welding personnel are expensive and difficult to find, train, and retain. With a robotic welder, you can optimize your staff by having one great welder supervising the work of several automated cells instead of having to find and train a lot of welders for the job.
2. Higher yields and throughput
Automation can routinely place the same quality welds in the same spots, over and over again, with minimal human error, eliminating the repetitive boring jobs which could be a factor in welder turnover.
3. Less post-weld cleanup
Robotic welding can be very precise allowing for less weld spattering and neater seams.
4. Lower the cost of consumable materials
Filler material and weld wire are used more economically, and less wastefully, with robotic welding thereby reducing the overall cost of the product.
5. Reduction in total time to market
Parts move through the system more quickly with repeatable part placement and routines set for the robotic welder, allowing for potentially increased production.
