Applicable robotic systems for forging die repair have required a considerable investment in preparation time and materials, adding to the overall cost of the project. NeWeld has combined several automation and welding technologies to introduce the first die-welding robot package.

Making Robotic Welding Work for Forgers

Absolute Welding and Machining is first to adopt a comprehensive package of product modeling, process design and automated welding to optimize die repair. Limitations of automation Consolidating CMM, robotics, pulse welding, custom software, and specially designed welding alloys Set-up and go Die life extension

Absolute Welding and Machining has been in the business of die reclamation and service-life extension for the past 20 years (originally as Absolute Welding), and working closely with welding-wire suppliers like Eureka Welding Alloys to expand the capabilities and applications of welding alloys. Over these two decades there has been steady progress in the development of welding alloys, but the application of automation technology — i.e., robots — for die repair has been minimal.
