The pressure on automotive manufacturers is continually increasing due to shorter and shorter model cycles. More and more parts have to be produced with the same size of workforce but in ever-shorter periods of time. Reduction in quality is not an option. Hence the highest priority is attributed to automation and especially to the enhancement of efficiency. However, despite the predominant use of welding robots, human welding specialists are still required. This may have to do with the welding of complexe chassis connections, the welding of delicate alloys, the retouching of insufficient welded connections or general weldings that is not possible for robots or possible only to a limited extent.
Welders have to perform a variety of welding processes, some of which can be very complex, and require welding equipment that is optimized for protection, comfort and efficiency such as welding machines that can be adjusted quickly by remote controls. The same high requirements also apply to the welder’s protective equipment, and in particular the welding helmets. To meet these requirements, there is now a simple and highly efficient solution.
