Welding controllers help in meeting quality standards
The industrial sector is adopting a large number of welding controllers to meet the rigorous quality demands. The welding industry has moved to a much stricter control of standards and has introduced various weld programming devices that can store and execute weld programs. The welding devices segment, therefore, is currently a growing sector.
During the initial stage of welding, a high level of inrush current is drawn. The welding unit essentially requires infinite current for a few cycles, but the power system fails to provide all the required current. This creates a drop-in voltage and results in poor quality of welding. Thus, nowadays the welding process section in industries is automated by controllers to supply the required current and maintain the faulting voltage drop.
“Welding controllers help to reduce scrap parts by executing repeatable and prearranged programs and maintaining the precise welding parameters. The costs incurred in confining the necessary skill level of the staff can be lowered. Modern welding devices and controllers help in lowering the costs and laying down the welding parameters,” says Sushmit Chakraborty, a lead analyst at Technavio for automation research.
Remote welding controllers improve safety at job site
A major challenge faced by the welding industry is the degree of difficulty, fatigue, frustration, and potential hazard caused to employees in the welding environment, which affects the welding accuracy. The work at large job sites requires a lot of movement between the power source and the point of welding. In such areas, maintaining safety becomes a serious concern Electrical jobs like welding can cause major accidents, leading to a significant amount of revenue loss.
The remote controlling technology of welding systems is beneficial in eliminating the necessity of control cables and offers the controlling technology electronically. It uses secondary weld cables for communication, which offers better control to the welding system components. The implementation of remote welding controllers has eliminated the necessity of walking back to the power supply for machine adjustment. Thus, it reduces the chances of operator's exposure to trip hazards and accidents related to ladder use. This increases safety by reducing fatigue observed in manual welding operators.
Increasing adoption of automation in APAC
The industrial sector in APAC is continuously expanding in terms of increasing capacity utilization in existing facilities as well as setting up of new industries. Most of the manufacturing utilities in this region will be witnessing high adoption of welding controllers, especially in countries such as China and India.
Major vendors are investing a part of their investments in adopting new technologies to modernize their manufacturing units and increase the rate of production. Welding controllers eliminate the need for a high number of skilled labor, thus contributing to increasing productivity in the welding process.
“Industrial welding robots have improved welding technology and are expected to be an integral part of the welding technology used in discrete industries during the forecast period. The increasing demand for industrial welding robots will highly impact the market of welding controllers, majorly in the automotive and auto component manufacturing industries,” says Sushmit.
