Soldering with a cobot

Soldering is a precision job that can be perfectly automated with a collaborative robot. Cobots are extremely precise, more accurate than humans, and thus deliver consistent quality. Cobots can do both soldering and brazing.


Soldering with a collaborative robot

To quickly and easily automate a soldering application, and cobot is a possible solution. By mounting special end-of-arm tooling at the end of the cobot, the robot can perform various soldering processes, including soldering PCBs. In addition to and soldering iron that provides the heat, a tool is placed that provides the supply of tin. Externally to the robot, a system is placed where the robot can clean the soldering iron in between jobs.

More productive and happy workers

Soldering is a task that requires a lot of concentration from workers and can also be boring or mind-numbing over time. This can lead to problems with the quality of the end product. People simply cannot concentrate and work precisely for 40 hours a week. A robot does not suffer from this and will always do the work in exactly the same way. Besides consistent quality, a robot also provides a productivity boost. Workers will have their hands free for other, more challenging tasks. Not only does this mean more work can be done, but employees will be happier doing the work they do.
