Manufacturing & Automation
Strike an Arc
In a process that forms an electric arc between component and electrode, arc welding is an extremely diverse and versatile manufacturing process. With a huge variety of arc welding variations, from traditional MIG and TIG, to more concentrated arcs such as plasma and laser or lower temperature welding techniques such as CMT, whatever materials needing to be arc welded, Bauromat’s experience will ensure that there is a solution for you.
From heavy fabrications, clean automotive welds or quality aerospace parts, Bauromat has provided welding solutions for all types of welding techniques. Each method of arc welding has its own benefits, with Bauromat’s welding expertise guiding all customers down the correct path for quality results.

Need a Spot of Welding?
Combining high pressures and electric currents, spot welding is a cost effective welding solution that combines multiple metal components together. Commonly used in automotive for sub assembly components, Bauromat is a leading spot welding automated solution provider.
A form of resistance welding, spot welding is just the start of welding possibilities with other cutting edge welding technologies available, including projection, seam and friction stir, all of which can be installed with industry 4.0 ready software, allowing you to monitor the quality of every weld.
With an extensive back catalogue of spot and resistance welding automated solutions throughout a number of leading automotive suppliers, customers can expect service and result of the highest quality with all spot welding enquiries.
Where joining materials together is required, but welding may be too harsh to the material, riveting provides an alternative solution which can warrant similar results. In a world of developing technologies, Bauromat are at the forefront of changes and when some manufacturers choose to move over to automated riveting methods over traditional welding solutions, Bauromat has the experience to provide solutions for any variations.
Bauromat works closely with self-piercing rivet equipment manufacturer Henrob to ensure quality products are used in all automation solutions. Self riveting automation provides the perfect answer as an alternative solution to welding when the material might not cope well with the high temperatures.
Standard or Bespoke
Bauromat has a range of standard concepts for its automated arc and spot welding solutions (BAURO-Arc and BAURO-Spot) which offer a diverse range of solutions for products ranging in all sorts of shapes, sizes and volumes. All concepts feature different component positioners offering varying levels of motion and flexibility, but can be customised at any level depending on the customer’s specific requirements. You can read more about our standard concepts here.
If an automated requirement doesn’t seem like it can be designed around a BAURO-Arc or BAURO-Spot concept, then Bauromat won’t stop to ensure a solution can be found. Bespoke systems are often part of the automation process and Bauromat has the capability and experience to create entirely bespoke designs for automation requirements of any size or scale. With an in-house team of designers, engineers and robot programmers, all aspects of your solution can be designed specifically for bespoke purposes. This links to our philosophy of ‘integration from day one’ which you can read more about here.
Like all Bauromat systems, our welding solutions feature a custom designed HMI system, built from the ground up, every HMI refers specifically to the customer's automation solution. Featuring a sleek interface and touch screen, the HMI is industry 4.0 ready with equipment effectiveness management systems as well as remote access and a tooling wizard that allows systems to be reprogrammed without the need of expensive PLC engineers.
