The BotX welding cobot by Red-D-Arc

Even in times of crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic, Red-D-Arc Welderentals delivers top industrial solutions as an essential service. In 2020, the healthcare sector is working at full capacity, so custom metal-fabrication and welding equipment is in high demand for manufacturing of medical devices and diagnostic machinery. One of the ways in which Red-D-Arc has contributed to this situation is by offering the BotX robotic welder, developed in collaboration with Hirebotics.

Faster, more efficient welding operations

Manufacturers these days face unique challenges from the combination of a shortage of skilled labour and the requirement for social distancing. Deterioration in quality is a risk that occurs in quickly developed, rapid production environments. Post-welding cleanup can be very expensive and time-consuming, causing a significant blow to throughput and disruption in the supply chain. But the BotX welding cobot can solve these issues.

Manufacturers can create faster, more efficient welding operations by blending human labour with current automation technology. The BotX robotic welder by Red-D-Arc enables this collaboration between human and automated power in manufacturing operations. As a cloud-connected welding cobot with real-time monitoring, the BotX gives users access to continuous welding and production data. The device can be controlled with the Hirebotics app on a Smartphone, through which an operator can set welding parameters like voltage, travel speed, and torch angle to achieve peak welding quality.

While every manufacturing plant adheres to its own individual protocols, users can configure this robotic welder in their own product libraries to adapt to their unique procedures. The BotX can solve any problems instantly with its cloud connectivity, adding smart welding automation that leads to increased throughput for the facility.

Customers get the benefits of robotic welding, minus the need for ample capital spending, with zero upfront investment and billing limited to productive work hours. The BotX works as a superior option for workforce multiplier on an as-needed basis, without risking employee safety.

The Red-D-Arc BotX welding cobot is the perfect choice for critical industries that aim to manufacture metal parts, sub-assemblies, and components for quick, precise production of medical equipment.
