Efficient 4 axis welding robot for pipes and tanks

Since its introduction the WeldingDroid WS has redefined pipe welding across the industries, by making welding easier, faster and less stressful for the welder. The WeldingDroid WS dramatically improves operational efficiency, optimises the level of quality and consistency of the welds and enables the operator to make substantial savings on every weld.

Features and benefits
Easy and fast operation
  • Can weld virtually all piping above 4”/100mm. 
  • Welding is 3-6 times faster than traditional welding with Argon 
  • Welding operation is as easy as it gets. Anybody can weld with the WeldingDroid WS 
  • At the press on button the operation begins. No need for human interaction in the weld process 
Welding
  • Pipes and tanks from Ø100 to Ø3000 fits the WeldingDroid WS 
  • Both horizontal and longitudinal welding is possible 
  • Oscillation with stops is an integrated option 
  • With lengths up to 8000 mm and a weight up to XX T a variety of applications can be welded 
  • Carbon steel, stainless, high alloy can all be welded 
  • TIG, MIG/MAG and AC/DC welding is possible 
Datacollection
  • With DroidHub online data collection all relevant WPS data is collected and stored for documentation purposes.
  • Wireless controller with pre-set weld parameters from our cloud based system DroidData, depending on application and power source.
  • Display of all weld data in our DroidDisplay dashboard and on our app for iOS and Android.
Return on investment
  • Increased productivity with 3-6 times faster weldings. A stainless Ø400 x 3 mm is welded in less than 6 minutes, including 10 mm overlap. A stainless Ø960 x 3 mm is welded in 13 minutes, including a 10mm overlap. 
  • Skilled workforce is not tied up in low profit operations but can do more profitable work.
  •  No need for corrections of welding errors, the WeldingDroid WS has a consistent high welding quality in all directions.
  • Payback in less than 6 month.
  • Get the high productivity of the WeldingDroid WS with little down payment. As service WeldingDroid also offers different lease plans (depending on country).

How it works
  • The operator loads the pipe on the rollers 
  • The welding arm is lowered 
  • The welding head is moved to the center with the remote control 
  • Depending on what application is welded the welding data is selected on the remote control, taken from an already made program or downloaded from the DroidData cloud 
    • Typically, this is including: 
    • Amperage 
    • Wire feed 
    • Rotation speed 
    • Oscillation  
    • Overlap 
  • Gas is opened  
  • “Start” is pushed on the remote 
  • The process begins and the operator can do other tasks while the welding is completed
