The jobs at ARC Specialties keep getting bigger and so do the robots.
- Post Date: November 22, 2021
Last week we discussed the hot wire process, its history, and applications. This week Dave Hebble and I demonstrate how to tune process variables to make sound welds. We show what we look for in the arc with the help of a Xiris Automation Inc. weld monitoring camera.
Robots can’t weld/paint/cut/or grip a part that they can’t reach. An envelope study or reach study is one of the most basic steps in the design of a system. Yet even today with advanced tools like Robotmaster offline programming software we still see systems fail when envelope limitations are not considered.
ARC Specialties hosts our First Friday Lunch the first Friday of the month, and if you are in town with extend an invitation to drop by and visit. This month’s event was lead with a presentation from one our programmers, Zachary Freeman, on our 7-axis GTA hot wire cladding system, ARC-5 Infinity.
All of the indicators that I watch are pointing towards a strong year-end and a great 2022. Our backlog is up 5X, we are hiring, and as you can see from the photos below, the ARC Specialties First Friday Lunch is BACK in a big way. Today we had 15 guests from all over the industry, spirits were high, and the conversation was positive.
