Brompton Bicycle Exclusive Webinar

Webinars 28 January 2021

Brompton Bicycle Exclusive Webinar on Robotic Welding

Robotic arc welding is an essential component of today’s manufacturing plants. The primary benefit of robotic arc welding are that production costs decrease due to increased throughput, reliability and quality are improved, reduced waste and overall improvement in the safety of the production facility. Through extensive application in many manufacturing industry sectors, robotic welding has been developed to a mature production method. Strong industrial need continues to drive the rapid development of robotic arc welding and associated technologies to overcome technical difficulties and expand their capability.

TWI has established good experience in robotic welding through its services in generic research, contract R&D, technical information, consultancy, standards drafting, training and qualification.

This webinar will cover the advantages and challenges associated with the uptake of robotic welding, and cover the key considerations for its uptake.
