The new Fab-Pak Cobot Guru system from Lincoln Electric automates the highest mix of different products while providing even non-welders with the ability to easily program it for increased productivity in even the smallest of workspaces.

It comes standard with the following components:

  •    -   FANUC CRX 10iA with tablet-based teach pendant
  •    -   Integrated pushbutton torch control
  •    -   AutoDrive 4R100 Wire Feeder
  •    -   Power Wave R450 Welder
  •    -   Fixed welding table
  •    -   Heavy-duty casters
  •    -   Stabilizing kickstand
  •    -   Utility drawer and tablet tray


The Fab-Pak Cobot Guru system’s dual-action, pushbutton interface and intelligent torch system allow operators to reduce cumbersome programming. Users at any level of expertise, including those with zero robotics experience, can record weld points with the push of a button and teach the cobot arm directly at the torch.

Operators can simply move the cobot’s arm with their hand to the start and finish waypoints. The cobot does the rest by calculating weld settings and parameters using the Lincoln Electric Arc Welding plug-in and then fluidly and automatically welds the part.

The system also features a new tablet teaching pendant that uses Icon-Based Timeline Programming. This feature reduces the programming learning curve by making it more relatable to an app-based generation of welders. Available upgrades include integrated fume extraction, a dual-zone, manual turntable system, and flexible tooling kits.

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.
