    Meet The Robotic Welder That Will Soon Be Putting Construction Workers Out Of Jobs

    While claiming to address the "shortage" of skilled welders, a company called Hirebotics has now engineered the first "robotic welding solution for hire". The automated welder is paid by the hour, just like skilled manual labor, and is far less likely to need a bathroom break and/or file a grievance with the local union.

    Claiming that traditional robotic welding automation has been a "poor solution" for most fabricators, the company is now offering a product called the BotX welder, which it says can accelerate business growth while eliminating the "headaches" of finding skilled welders.

    The company, which was started with the goal of helping along manufacturers, says that the BotX Welder bridges the gap between inflexible, expensive and higher productive traditional automation and manual welding with skilled welders. It says that the BotX can be used both as a tool for a company's manual welders to get more done each day, and also as a robotic welder that is set up by a skilled welder, but then run by an untrained operator, via app.

    The company claims there are four key advantages to its solution:
    1. Pay by the Hour Automation
    2. No-Programming Robotic Welding
    3. Robotic Welding Library Developed by International Experts
    4. Industry leading 24/7 support

    The company charges $33 per "productive" hour per system to hire its bots.

    The company's mobile app says that it offers "real-time monitoring of your robotic welder tracking parts produced, consumption of welding consumables such as gas and wire, and productivity metrics like arc on time." The app also includes a pre-set welding library specifically tuned for robotic welding.

    And of course - what would any new technological product, run via app, be without offering a "community"?
    "when you hire a BotX Welder for your business, you are joining a community of like-minded users that share our philosophy and culture of helping others get the most out of robotic welding," the company's website says.
    Who wants to sit around and talk about robotic welding all day? A little marketing advice for the future: spare us the bullsh*t, you had us at saving money.

    I could sell that. I can see it coming. Not quite like that business model, but I hear they are doing it to whole factories. No more workers. Dayton Ohio comes to mind and glass manufacturing?

      You ever get the chance tour Hyundai in Alabama. Tram ride takes over an hour and you see hundreds of yellow robots doing their dance from little desktop models to bigguns handling coil steel. Plenty of humans interfacing with the bots, and a company sponsored welding school where employees go to learn the craft while getting paid.
      Pipeline is automating as well and those bots are good workers.

        Yup i see that. I was a robotic weld tech. I set it up and anyone puts in the parts and pushes a button...Bob

          I always thought that a robotic weld tech position would be a great gig. A white hat with a desk job. A little country and a little rock and roll.

          Almost bought one at one point when the technology on multi axis was developing so fast the others were almost worthless. I was going to buy the worthless.
          Then I remembered, just because you can doesn't mean you should. I sometimes question that decision? But it goes quickly.

          Remember the Robot from the original Lost in Space? DANGER Will Robinson.
