Friction Welding

Friction Welding with Motoman GP Series Robots

Motoman Robots have been successfully installed to handle parts for friction welding machines. The workpiece handling is trickier than a classical Machine Tending Operation, but this is where Motoman GP Series and SDA robots play out their strengths!

Friction / Spin Welding of Plastics with Motoman Robots

This is an elegant robotic application, specifically for large panel plastic workpieces like dashboards or wheel shells.

 

Friction Stir Welding with large Motoman GP Series Robots

Friction Stir Welding is an emerging technology well suited to weld aluminium LIB battery trays of electric vehicles (BEV/HEV). For this process, we recommend rigid stronger shortarm GP Series robots, like the GP280 or GP400.
