Hey friends,

Wanted to see what you thought about mounting two welding torches onto a single robot (assuming payload is not a factor)? This would only work as long as you leave movement onto the XYZ planes. What do you think? Could this be done, has it already, why wouldn't it work?

Thanks!

I have to ask, why would you want to do that?.

We have a customer who has exactly that.  His torches are mounted 180 degrees opposite each other.  They use it for welding both sides of small parts.  It works well but it's a pain to have to reteach as you have to keep in mind the position of both torches when you reteach.  But other than that, it works well!

That was my concern, your piece parts would need almost perfect presentation and fit-up every time and in my experience of welding that's not always the case.

When you have to lay down a big bead we've done dual torches on a robot before.
