Robotic arc welding - trends and developments for higher autonomy

Bolmsjö, Gunnar LU ; Olsson, Magnus LU and Cederberg, Per LU (2002) In Industrial Robot 29(2). p.98-104
Abstract
The development of robotized welding is truly impressive and is today one of the major application areas for industrial robots. The first industrial robots were introduced in the early 1960s for material transfer and machine tending. Not long after that, robots were used for spot welding and in the early 1970s for arc welding as well. During the years, significant developments have taken place both concerning the robot equipment and the welding equipment to meet the different challenges within the application area, This paper describes the development and progress of robotization in welding over the years and also some projections and trends for the near future.
