Nashville, TN, May 21st, 2024 – Hirebotics, the leading provider of collaborative robots for metal fabrication, launches support for the new Miller® Auto DeltaWeld™ with their Cobot Welder.

The Miller Auto DeltaWeld System is a MIG/Flux-cored, pulsed-capable power source designed for cobots. With this new addition to Hirebotics Cobot Welder, the user experience becomes even more streamlined.

Beacon Cobot Control From Hirebotics

Beacon, a Hirebotics smartphone app, now controls the entire cobot welding setup. 

Unlike other cobot solutions, Hirebotics Beacon-powered Cobot Welder lets the user control everything in one place—a simple smartphone/tablet interface. This makes the process easier and faster compared to systems where welders must go back and forth between the teach pendant and the power source.

Beacon is cloud-based, allowing total remote and local cobot control. In Beacon, users can adjust settings like:

Switching processes between CV and pulsed MIG

Wire feed speed (WFS)

Arc length

Crater fill time

Weave action

Pre and post flow time

Burnback, retract, and hot start settings

And others

Future-Proofing The Cobot Welding System

The new Miller Auto DeltaWeld integration into Hirebotic’s Cobot Welder future-proofs the system. With remote software updating, future welding features and functions can be easily integrated with the Cobot Welder. 

“While the Auto DeltaWeld Basic is designed for simplicity, we at Miller still want to provide top of the line waveforms. As we update and expand our welder functionality, Hirebotics ability to provide online updates is a powerful tool to ensure their customers experience the latest in welding technology.”  - Sam Nolan, Product Manager at ITW Miller Welding Automation

The Miller Auto DeltaWeld Power Source

The Miller Auto DeltaWeld provides exceptional reliability and welding quality on carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. It’s designed for sheet metal, structural steel, and heavy industrial manufacturing.

“Cobots are designed to provide simple, safe automation. The Auto DeltaWeld Basic was built just for that. We strive to provide Hirebotics with the ability to provide the best software/hardware experience to keep the cobots easy to use and operate.” - Sam Nolan, Product Manager at ITW Miller Welding Automation

Some of the systems’ most notable features are:

Pulsed MIG welding - allows producing TIG-like welds with MIG productivity. This ensures high weld quality, especially when paired with a cobot.

Miller’s Accu-Pulse - provides a wider operating window, works in all positions, improves pulsed-MIG application, and increases deposition by 20-25%.

High-duty cycle - ensures uninterrupted cobot welding for most applications.

Hirebotics, Beacon-Powered Turn-Key Cobot Fabrication

Hirebotics Cobot Welder is a straightforward, app-controlled, turnkey, off-the-shelf welding automation solution. 

Beacon automatically recommends welding parameters using artificial intelligence (AI), saving time and improving the weld quality. Users can use recommended and previously saved settings, or input welding parameters manually.

Hirebotics Cobot Welder requires no programming or robotics skills. Beacon only requires the settings welding professionals are used to, like WFS and voltage.

The new Miller Auto DeltaWeld integration ensures the highest level of welding quality on all commonly welded materials. Thanks to Beacon and the Miller Auto DeltaWeld, the Hirebotics Cobot Welder System is future-proof, easy to use, and ready to boost fabrication productivity immediately upon installation.
