Key Features of the DOBOT CR10A 

Precision and Repeatability

With a repeatability of ±0.03mm, the CR10A ensures consistent weld quality through almost any move. Precise positioning ensures weld consistency and minimizes defects. This guarantees the cobot’s efficiency and translates to higher productivity on the shop floor. 

Payload and Reach

The DOBOT CR10A supports a 10 kg payload and offers a 1300mm reach. Its six axes provide flexibility and accessibility for a variety of welding tasks from linear horizontal moves through to arcing around pipe.

Quick Deployment

Setting up the CR10A is straightforward, thanks to its user-friendly interface. Unlike traditional industrial robots, it doesn’t require extensive coding or engineering expertise, it is all programmable through a single piece of blockly software.

Lets take a look on how these benifits can be translated into the welding application.

Benefits of Using the DOBOT CR10A for Welding

Cost-Effective Automation:

Manual welding requires skilled technicians which are getting harder and harder to find as welding has an aging workforce. This leads to a shortfall of capable personel and difficulty delivering complex projects on time.

The CR10A reduces reliance on skilled welders for menial tasks, freeing up experienced welders for more elaborate projects by being operable by a technician for repeat work, saving both time and money.

Consistent Quality and Productivity:

Precise positioning ensures weld consistency and minimizes defects. With the capability of running repetative tasks with a technician to load and unload the product providing a highly reliable finish on repeat work.

The cobot’s efficiency translates to higher productivity on the shop floor. 

Welding Application Scenarios

Carbon Steel Fillet Weld:

The CR10A excels in creating strong and clean fillet welds on carbon steel components.

Whether it’s automotive parts or structural elements, the cobot delivers reliable results.

 

On-the-Ground Welding:

Welding low-lying components or structures becomes efficient with the CR10A.

Its reach allows it to access tight spaces while maintaining precision. 

Laser Welding

Welding with materials such as Aluminuim, Stainless Steel and Carbon steel gives you a wide range of applications.

Appliable in many fields of manufacturing, It has very high versititly in many different environments 

 

Conclusion

Ihe DOBOT CR10A bridges the gap between manual welding and large-scale automation. Its affordability, safety features, and ease of use make it an attractive choice for small and medium-sized enterprises. Whether you’re in automotive, metal fabrication, or any other industry, consider integrating the CR10A into your welding processes.
