Altitude Welding Robot / Industrial Design

Altitude Welding Robot

At present, more and more high-rise buildings require high-altitude welding operations. Welding workers will not only suffer from various occupational diseases during long hours of work, but the important is that high-altitude operations are particularly dangerous. The Altitude Welding Robot is built on the drone platform and can be operated by the staff. It can fly to the high-altitude area for welding work. When welding work, the staff observes through the camera on the drone in the case of welding, the strength of the welding point can also be detected by scanning, it can be returned to the storage bin after the welding completed.
