Implementing robotic welding systems for the first time is generally a successful endeavor. However, potential pitfalls and common mistakes can lead to performance issues and increase operational costs. Making yourself aware of these mistakes and the measures you should take to prevent them will contribute to a pleasant transition from labor-intensive, manual processes to the lower-cost, higher-quality automated ones in use today and into the future.
