SnapWeld: First integrated MIG Welding System for Collaborative Robots

The SnapWeld Collaborative Robot Welding package is a cobot-assisted, interactive welding system that can be deployed in existing, manual welding booths, eliminating the need for costly new robotic cells. The system is ideal for small job shops that are struggling with the budget, programming, and space requirements of traditional welding robots. The SnapWeld system includes a Profax wire feeder and water-cooled torch for welds up to 600 amps, along with the UR robot.

One of the big advantages of using cobots for a welding application is the ease of programming. SnapWeld was developed with and verified by Universal Robots through the UR+ platform facilitating direct software integration into the UR programming environment, enabling advanced settings to be easily programmed directly on the robot’s teach pendant.
