Why you should use a robot for welding
Average return on investment on a welding robot is 10-18 months
Increasing production capacity
One robot can replace 2-3 persons in your manufacturing workflow. It’s usable in environments where people can not work physically.
You get neat and strong welding joints and reduce the amount of substandard work
Robots let you launch new products without significant investment in the equipment modernization
How it works in SprutCAM Robot
Use our solution for designing and testing your welding operation on a PC. It safe and doesn’t require a real robot for testing
1. Import a 3D model
SprutCAM Robot supports all popular 3D formats.
Also, you can create a model in our embedded CAD.
2. Choose your robot from the library
SprutCAM Robot already contains models of the most popular robots.
You can assemble your robot cell for welding in SprutCAM Robot. Or you can use our advanced solution MachineMaker 2.0 .
3. Indicate welding spots
Simply indicate them on your 3D model.
SprutCAM Robot automatically calculates the shortest and safest toolpath for welding.
4. Get the result you wanted
Universal CAD/CAM solution
SprutCAM has a comprehensive library of 3D models and postprocessors for robots and CNC Machines
for a productive workflow
Build toolpaths for any type of welding
SprutCAM builds welding toolpaths for any type of welding operation or equipment:
- Arc Welding;
- Resistance Welding;
- Spot Welding;
- TIG Welding;
- MIG Welding
Control additional axes
Besides the robot and CNC machine themselves, SprutCAM ensures control of an unlimited number of linear and rotary positioning axes.
Avoid collisions easily
Our Axis map tool helps to easily detect and bypass collisions:
- Envelope limitations;
- “Out of reach” cases;
- Other collisions.
You can correct your toolpath automatically or do it manually selecting points on the curve.
Different kind of welds
Following welding process types supported:
- Seam welding
- Spot welding
- Tack welding
- Stitch welding
You can use each of them in one toolpath
High precision work
SprutCAM Robot can work with triangulation sensors and other equipment for instant correction of the welding job
Robot uses special sensors to locate the actual spots to be welded. Before the welding starts, the robot scans the part. Then it corrects the toolpath and starts the job. This is all programmed in advance offline in SprutCAM Robot.
