ROBOTIC AND MANUAL WELDING

Robotic & Manual Welded Precision Metal Products

 

At Classic Welding and Fabrication Inc., our customers gain access to extensive welding capabilities utilizing both Robotic and Manual welding, MIG and TIG. Our capabilities include:

  • Experienced and certified in welding carbon steels, stainless steels, and aluminum materials.
  • Complete resistance spot welding capabilities available for joining parts together; as well as welding nuts, studs, and various other fasteners to precision metal assemblies.
  • AWS Certified Welders and AISC Compliant

 

We supply manual & robotic weldments to various industries, including:

  • Renewable Energy
  • Solar Energy
  • Utility-scale ground-based racking systems
  • Automobile
  • Utility truck and large vehicles
  • Construction

Our company has material handling systems and overhead cranes in place to manage part positioning for parts ranging from 40 feet and longer weighing many tons, to small parts being a few inches long and fractions of a pound. Weld programs may run in 1,000+ unit manufacturing lots weekly to smaller volumes being processed monthly or a few times annually. Contact us today to learn more!

 

Our staff are experienced in designing and developing medium to high volume weld fixture solutions, ranging from:

  • Automotive quality fixtures with automated clamping and materials handling systems.
  • Articulating and rotating fixtures with CNC repositioning.
  • Carrousel rotating table and rollover fixtures.
  • Trunnions
  • Positioners
  • Bluco welding tables

 

MIG Welding Services

 

Metal Inert Gas, commonly called Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), or metal active gas (MAG) welding, is a welding process where an electric arc forms between the wire electrode and the metal work-piece, heating the metal(s) to the point of melting and joining.

  • Wire, metal electrode, is constantly fed from a spool when MIG welding.
  • High-efficiency process since the filler metal wire is in constant transfer.
  • High weld quality with minimal heat distortion.

 

 

TIG Welding Services

 

Tungsten Inert Gas, or referred to as Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), is an arc welding process that uses a filler rod / tungsten electrode to produce the weld.

 

Robotic Welding Manufacturing Services

Robotic Welding, or automated welding, is the use of an automated, programmable system that welds and handles the product. Our company has the latest in Robotic Welding equipment and technologies, offering our customers the throughput, performance, and process quality control which robotic welding brings to the manufacturing process. Our robotic welding services provide speed, efficiency, and control for welded manufacturing processes.

Robotic welding is a key component to manufacturing cost control and production velocity of cellular manufacturing:

 

  • Robotic Welding – Significantly reduces set-up times, making it feasible to process significantly smaller production run lot sizes and realize the benefits of the CNC technology.
  • Robotic Welding – Increases throughput (both capacity and velocity).
  • Robotic Welding – Dramatically improves weld quality, consistency, repeatability.
  • Robotic Welding – Reduces and often eliminates the need for hand finishing and grinding of welds.

 

Benefits of Automated Robotic Welding

Our numerous robotic welding cells offer customers extensive cellular manufacturing advantages:

 

  • Large robotically assembled weldments – using robotic trunnions to facilitate rotating weldment and articulating weld fixtures.
  • Touch sensing robotic heads for location accuracy across large parts.
  • Production scheduling flexibility to process weldments through multiple robotic systems, and the ability to offer customers fast turn delivery.
  • Welding of simple to complex assemblies, with a large number of parts and sub-components, varying part material thicknesses, and challenging individual part geometries.
  • Welding a large spectrum of part sizes, with weld assemblies and parts ranging from 40 feet in length down to as small as 3” x 3” x 3”.
  • Expertise in welding carbon steel (1″ thick), aluminum, and stainless steel.

Our robotic welding systems utilize the latest weld process techniques including CV, STT, Pulse, and Rapid Arc to deliver high quality, repeatable and esthetically clean welds.

We design and engineer all of our welding fixtures including automated hydraulic clamping features.
