Welding processes performed and controlled by robotic equipment. In addition to executing specific steps dictated by a software program, robotic welding often is augmented by a vision system or other sensors to verify the presence of the parts to be joined. A chief advantage over manual welding is consistency. A corresponding drawback is that the workpieces usually must be manufactured to closer, more consistent tolerances than those joined by manual welding.
