Traditionally, adaptive welding robots have been used to handle low skill, repetitive tasks from a fixed location. But with the tools and features available today for offline programming, sensing, tool changing, and remote monitoring, robotic systems are gaining the flexibility and technology needed to widen the range of capabilities.

This is particularly useful when the welding requirements involve extremely large metal parts located in a dangerous environment. The unprecedented Navus system featured in this white paper moves the robotic welding workcell 100 feet into position in a dangerous environment while the operator works remotely from a safe location. The multi-task robot effectively preps joints, welds, provides inter-pass cleaning, and vacuums welds remotely.

The remotely operated, multi-function robotic work cell designed for this particular purpose drastically increases operator safety and productivity while also saving substantial time and expense. By envisioning an innovative new process and changing paradigms, the Navus system substantially reduces the prohibitive costs of time and expense of traditional methods.
