Beacon empowers the shop floor by allowing everyone to wield the power of cobots.

Cobot tech sounds great, but “ease-of-use”
doesn’t always translate to intuitive and widely accessible.

Struggling to meet the demand due to the skilled labor shortage?

Does achieving higher quality and less rework seem unattainable?

Have you tried robot/cobot solutions only to be put off by the high learning curve?

Do cobots seem not flexible enough due to the software you must use for every part batch?

Cobot Solutions For Metal Fabrication
‒ Powered by

Welding with Beacon

Beacon simplifies setting up the weld with your Cobot Welder. Using the Cobot's teach button, record the weld path in the Beacon app for your linear, radial, tack, stitch, and rotary welds. Then, adjust weld settings, like the arc length and travel speed. And… That’s it! You are all set for repeatable weld execution. Your operators can repeat this process to teach your Cobot Welder whenever it’s necessary to switch to another part batch. 
 

Cutting with Beacon

Beacon lets you teach your Cobot Cutter to perform linear, radial, and rotary plasma cuts with absolute precision. No matter how skilled an operator, manual plasma can’t match automated cut quality. With Beacon, your fabricators can apply the Cobot Cutter all day long, batch after batch, with minimal cobot teaching for each cut setup.
