The future is here; welding is no longer a dark, dirty, hot trade. Increasingly, it is backed by advanced technology like robots, co-bots, welding cameras and augmented reality.

Rapid advancements in welding technology are improving productivity, quality and workplace safety, particularly in the areas of augmented reality, collaborative robots, and sophisticated monitoring cameras.

The welding industry in Australia is on the brink of a revolution, powered by the rapid advancements in technology. At the heart of this transformation are augmented reality, collaborative robots, and sophisticated monitoring cameras.

Augmented reality offers welders an enhanced visualisation, overlaying digital information onto the real world. This not only aids in precision but also provides real-time guidance and training, reducing errors and ensuring consistency across complex welding tasks.

Unlike traditional robots that work separately from humans, cobots are designed to work alongside their human counterparts. They offer increased efficiency and accuracy, especially for repetitive tasks. This collaboration results in faster production rates without compromising on quality.

High-definition cameras provide detailed, close-up visuals of the welding process. By magnifying intricate sections and ensuring accurate joins, they significantly improve quality control. Moreover, the recorded footage can be used for training and quality assurance purposes.

For welders and fabrication business owners, these technologies are not just tools; they’re game-changers. Embracing them not only places businesses at the forefront of the industry but also guarantees a future of increased productivity, quality, and safety.

Soldamatic Augmented Reality Welding Simulators

Soldamatic is the first welder training solution powered with augmented reality in the world. With zero risks involved, apprentices can respond to realistic scenarios without pressure or fear of injury, enabling future welders to acquire the skills and the self-confidence they need before moving into real-world workshops.

Doosan Collaborative Robots

 Cobots are specifically designed to share the work space with human beings, making automation easier for businesses of all sizes, particularly SMEs. Cobots are generally versatile, lightweight, require relatively little space, and are much easier to program than their industrial counterparts.  They offer improved productivity, profitability, quality and safety.

Xiris Welding Cameras

The Xiris weld camera eliminates pixel saturation that previously masked the weld process details. The result is a clear definition of the weld arc as well as making its darker environment clearly visible, allowing for improved productivity of the welding process.  Xiris helps manufacturers detect, recognise, and interpret quality defects in manufactured goods.
