Esab's Swift Arc robotic welding system consists of a Kuka robot and controller with an Esab Aristo welding source, mounted on roller casters and fully enclosed.

Many companies cite a lack of skilled workers as a reason for implementing robotics and other automation, but what if robots could help train humans? That’s the idea behind Esab’s Swift Arc mobile learning system. The robotic welding cell is designed to demonstrate, develop and teach proper welding techniques as well as robot programming skills.

The fully enclosed robotic welding system features Esab’s Aristo U5000i power source alongside a Kuka KR6 900 robot and controller. Heavy-duty roller casters provide mobility for on-site training. The safety system and operator control panel enable users to practice troubleshooting and programming techniques while gaining the hands-on experience necessary to operate robotic systems on the shop floor.
