Brainstorming ideas for “trying out” new devices
Insights can only be obtained through technical exchanges. Recently, a twin-wire welding machine and a welding collaborative robot have settled in the Suzhou factory. Through the explanation and hands-on experience, the welders in the Suzhou factory felt the positive impact of technology and automation on production. As actual welding experts in the front line, the welders offered their suggestions, analyzed the characteristics of the new equipment, and considered the feasibility of applying the new technology to actual production.
“War” simulators show their special abilities
When it comes to the most popular place in the Suzhou factory at noon every day during the “Welding Month”, it must be the virtual welding simulator experience area in the lobby. Here, through the blessing of VR technology, without consuming any test boards, employees who have never experienced welding before can also try the charm of welding and experience the daily life of welders.
“Soldering is too difficult!” Looking at the flashing scores on the screen, the experiencers laughed and confided. When they learned that the actual welding torch is several times heavier than the virtual welding torch, and welders need to wear heavy protective clothing and maintain welding positions for a long time every day, everyone was in awe. “Before I only knew that welding is a job that requires technology, but I really tried it, so I realized how difficult it is.” The experiencers said with emotion.
Co-welding “TEAM” artwork
Celebrate “Welding Month” and weld a “TEAM” together. The welders of the Suzhou factory worked together to weld the “TEAM” artwork, one weld per person, demonstrating the cohesion and cooperation spirit of the welder team “ONE TEAM”.
