Introducing the New Robotic Welding Team

In mid-2012, Pro-Weld, Inc. invested in several new robotic welding cells to boost the output, quality and efficiency of its Chesterfield manufacturing operations. Each dedicated area contains a flexible work cell that allows for quick change-over of the tooling and a program to quickly switch to the next job. The operators are trained in material pre-checks to maintain consistent quality throughout the process. Each operator is also trained in proper loading and clamping techniques. Pro-Weld, Inc. robotic weld cells can produce everything from small sub-assembly details to medium sized weldments on all the way up to tubular end-frames and even large rack bases. Each welding robot can handle heavy steel gauges up to 0.250” thick and beyond. Pro-Weld’s robotic weld cells provide the best quality and accuracy available in the steel fabrication industry today. Our customers can rest assured that every weld will be perfect, each and every time!

Pro-Weld Incorporated is pleased to announce that it has purchased the newly released Faro Edge and the all-new Laser Line Probe. Pro-Weld made the decision to go with this state- of–the–art technology after considering the accuracy, ease of use and the versatility the Faro Edge brings to measuring. The Faro Edge will allow Pro-Weld to quickly verify product quality and consistency throughout the design and manufacturing process. The device allows for CAD –to-part analysis and reverse engineering by probing and non-contact laser scanning.

“As a full service supplier of steel fabricated products across many different industries, Pro-Weld relies on the Faro Edge to provide a single, accurate solution to all of our measuring requirements. “explained Scott Light, President of Pro-Weld. “As our customers need for more accurate, tighter tolerance products grows, the need for CMM inspection has become an essential part of our service. The portability of the Faro Edge will allow Pro-Weld to conduct in-house and on-site measurements as well as reverse engineering services.”  Many company’s choose to outsource these services. “To provide a one-stop solution for our customers, Pro-Weld is investing in the technology that will bring us a competitive edge and draw more customers to our designs and products” added Light.

Pro-Weld has purchased the seven- axis, twelve foot measuring range. The instrument has an integrated personal measuring assistant, built in touch screen and on board operating system which allows the Faro Edge to standalone without a laptop computer connection. This allows for quick dimensional checks. The laser line probe allows for wide strip scanning coverage with superior accuracy. Variable capture rates of 45,000 points per second provide outstanding speed and feature definition.

“Customers choose Pro-Weld because we are a full-service company. We design, prototype and manufacture products all under one roof” said Light. “The Faro Edge gives us a competitive “Edge” and will lead to more business for our team”.
