Buyers want sturdy, well-built cars, so the quality of welds that hold auto bodies together is crucial to vehicle manufacturers. Manufacturers want strong welds that are consistently and accurately placed so the finished car looks both durable and attractive.
Welding robots for resistance spot welding (RSW) have been a boon to auto manufacturers because they provide consistent weld placement. But all welding robots need actuators to carry and power the weld gun. Those actuators have a huge impact on the consistent quality of welds. They can also impact the cost of robotic resistance spot welding.
