Why Made for Welders Matter

Empowering your existing workforce to be part of the solution will keep your existing welders engaged (and employed!) with your organization longer.

Welders care about torch angles and weld settings, not TCPs and coordinate systems.
Traditional automation cells are not suited for your high-mix and low-volume productions.
Investing in traditional arc welding automation will simply substitute your challenge of hiring and retaining skilled welders with skilled robot programmers.

We Are Welders Too!

We know what it feels like to lack the workforce you need to achieve your business goals. This is why we believe in empowering the welders you already have on your team.

We are welders too, so we understand how robot programming can be a challenge for your team. This is why our proprietary smartphone app for the Cobot Welder is a game-changer.

By empowering your welders to teach your welding cobot, they can oversee the setup and production quality and produce more while working on other value-added tasks!

Bringing in the cobots (Cobot Welders) and get them up and running, it actually increased our output 400%.

With the Cobot Welders, we have actually had welders come and run the cobots and they have been able to learn to program it in half an hour.

Beyond expectation, it was actually easier than what we were told it was going to be.

Case Studies

“The main difference between Hirebotics’ Cobot Welder and traditional welding robots is that no programming is required. And the difference between Cobot Welder and manual welding is you can track everything from the app."

Mark Moye Advanta Southeast LLC

“We had welders learn how to use Cobot Welder in about half an hour. Hirebotics’ Cobot Welder has allowed us to let non-welders operate the machine. They don’t need to learn the programming language, and they don’t need to go to a school.”

Cobot Welder FAQ

Will Cobot Welder weld my parts?

It depends on numerous factors including the type of material, type of welding, part size, and more.  The best way to know for sure is to reach out to us for a demo so we can best assess your application needs.

What is the reach of the cobot?

The cobot used in the Cobot Welder is the Universal Robots UR10e. It has a maximum reach of approximately 51". Each joint has full 360º rotation.

How fast can I weld with a cobot?

The maximum speed of the cobot is approximately 1 meter per second.  However, the Cobot Welder utilizes the built-in safety controller of the Universal Robots UR10e to limit the maximum speed during welding to approximately 110 inches per minute.

If you need to weld faster, reach out so we can understand your needs a bit more.

What is the lead time to get a Cobot Welder?

Generally, our lead time is approximately 2 weeks from receiving your PO.  Reach out to us at any time about our current lead time if you need a system sooner!

What do I need to know about safety when cobot welding?

While cobots have numerous safety features built-in and do not require safety cages like traditional automation, there are some important safety items to keep in mind when cobot welding.

Most importantly and just like manual welding, your welders need proper PPE.  You'll also want to make sure you protect your welders with arc flash protection like you do for your manual weld stations.  And don't forget fume extraction.  

Do I need touch sensing or seam tracking with the Cobot Welder?

One of the main reasons manufacturers are looking to use welding cobots is their 𝒆𝒂𝒔𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝒔𝒆𝒕𝒖𝒑 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒈𝒓𝒂𝒎𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒈, so adding complexity with weld seam tracking systems may be counterproductive.

With a good fixture design or repeatable jigs, you can remove the need for adding complex technologies to your weld cells.
