ELK GROVE VILLAGE, ILL. - National Metal Fabricators, a leading custom sheet metal fabrication company, is helping manufacturers cut costs with premium services in robotic welding. The services make larger runs easier while cutting down on production time.


"When a particular part or job that calls for a welding operation, if applicable robotic welding is the way to go both in terms of speed and volume production," said Tom Bonine, president of National Metal Fabricators. "When manufacturers can increase production speed and efficiency, they ultimately can reduce costs and deliver quality products to their customers."

Generally robotic welding is associated with specific assembly line operations. At National Metal the robotic welding process has been integrated into the job shop environment and is applicable to those jobs and the parts involved that uniquely lend themselves to Robotic welding.

National Metal Fabricators is a leader in services related to sheet metal fabrication. Projects are customized for unique looks and performances. The company has earned a reputation for quick and accurate cutting, and the staff has access to high-quality laser cutting equipment. NMF regularly seeks complex jobs that other manufacturers might avoid.

"Our services are increasingly used in multiple industries. Along with robotic welding we offer quality welding in both MIG and TIG," Bonine said. "At National Metal Fabricators, our mission is to provide the best in welding and metal fabrication services; our robotic welding services allow us to exceed expectations."

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
