The Future of Robotic Welding in Manufacturing

By Orbital Welding No Comments

Unimation 001, the first welding robot, was created in 1962. In the early days, heavy automated machinery with less flexibility limited robotic welding to large-scale heavy industries like automotive manufacturing. With today’s refined robotic and computing tools, however, robotic welding has become widely available across manufacturing environments. This transition has…
