Welding Expert Panel: A LIVE panel session with welding industry Experts

March 19, 2024 02:00 PM

Join us March 19th for an educational panel session with welding industry Experts

We have gathered a stellar panel of welding experts for you to learn all about automating welding and to get all of your welding questions answered!

Welding has undergone a substantial transformation with the introduction of automation, most recently through the incorporation of collaborative robots, or cobots. Rather than substituting human labor, the intention behind collaborative robotic welding systems is to support fabricators in enhancing productivity, upholding exceptional work quality, and boosting welder engagement.

By executing welding tasks with unparalleled precision, cobots contribute to uniform weld quality, minimizing the potential for errors that could jeopardize the structural integrity of weldments. 

To fully explore the benefits and possibilities of automated welding we have 5 welding experts who will take you through:

✔ Possibilities of automated welding and its benefits.  

✔ The flexibility and efficiency of cobot welding 

✔ How cobots are elevating productivity, fostering product consistency, and enhancing employee retention in the metal fabrication industry

✔ How these automation tools are positively impacting business leaders and welders, with insight from experts operating in the welding industry

 

Meet our Panel speakers:
