Germantown Tool and Manufacturing was one of the first metal fabricators in the region to offer robotic welding capabilities to the market. Robotic welding offers several distinct advantages over conventional hand welding:

Consistency

Robotic welding and automated welding yields consistent, even beads, resulting in higher quality, increased strength, and improved cosmetic appearance.

Speed

Robotic welders can achieve throughput rates 4-5x that of conventional hand welding. This results in faster turnaround times and reduced production costs.

Quality

“Missed welds” are eliminated with automated welding, resulting in less scrap and rework.

Germantown Tool currently operates a total of seven robotic welding cells, each equipped with Fanuc robots and Lincoln Electric power supplies. All robotic welding tables are designed and built in-house to our exacting specifications, ensuring quick setup and breakdown, as well as part-to-part and lot-to-lot consistency. The result? Reduced downtime and enhanced productivity.

Another important contributor to consistent, high-quality welds is weld fixture design. For that reason, all Germantown Tool welding fixtures are designed and built in-house by our experienced toolmakers.

Robotic welding allows Germantown Tool to offer consistent, high-quality welded assemblies to a variety of industries, including the automotive, commercial lawn care equipment, recreation/leisure, truck & trailer, office furniture, and general industrial markets.

Germantown Tool will supply parts as simple as a two piece weldment, or as complicated as a 20 piece welded assembly consisting of several metal stampings, studs, and shafts. From the simple to the complex, Germantown Tool & Manufacturing can satisfy your most demanding welding requirements with robotic welding technology.
