Analysts’ Viewpoint

New developments are on the rise as far as robotic welding torches are concerned. Companies in the welding torch and wear parts market are focusing on expanding their product range in robotic welding torches. For instance, Abicor Binzel - a leading manufacturer of robotic welding torches, announced the launch of ROBO Compact W600 - an addition to its product range of liquid-cooled high-performance welding torches. However, keyhole TIG poses limitations in single-pass welding, due to the absence of additional layers to execute the welding. Thus, companies should educate end users about the usage of part positioners and rotational devices to successfully execute single-pass welding. They should also run several tests to comply with strict industry standards.
