Flexible & Consistent Arc Welding
Automation has proven to speed up production lines, increase throughput and battle labor shortages. To help you make your case for automation, we have provided a sampling of Kawasaki success stories to show why we should be your automation partner.
As experienced arc welders become an increasingly scarce resource and mass production amplifies the need for consistent product quality, many companies are at a loss. They need to weld their parts, but it’s difficult to find skilled welders who can produce high quality products, let alone maintain that standard of quality while meeting daily production goals. Advances in robotic arc welding have made it possible for companies to experience the quality and consistency of an expert arc welder on their best day, every single weld.
In the mid-1980s, Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing Corp., USA (KMM) installed their first Kawasaki robots. Growing tired of inconsistent part fit and the constant struggle to find enough welders to keep up with production, KMM’s new robots were put to work arc welding their all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and Mule and Teryx four-wheeler frames. Now, 30 years later, the manufacturer uses 84 Kawasaki arc welding robots.
