Welding robotics from Yaskawa and Lorch.

Greater efficiency, quality, and safety for all batch sizes.

Together with Yaskawa, the market leader in robot welding, Lorch now provides a quick, simple, and economical gateway to industrial robot welding for medium-sized enterprises. Benefit from the many advantages of automation as well!

Beyond this, the unique symbiosis of first-class automation competence and full arc expertise ensures a perfectly coordinated solution with individual components turning into a smoothly functioning unit.

Partial automation.

Welding tractors in a modular system for welding automation to match your needs.

The new Lorch welding tractors take over continuous torch guidance to allow welders to focus entirely on setting the welding parameters. This increases productivity and weld seam quality as heat input is rendered more controllable and causes less distortion. Repetition and reproducibility reduce stress. The greater distance from the torch improves even the welder’s working situation.

Thanks to the Lorch modular system, you only need to buy what you actually need for automating your welding task. All modules of the modular system interact perfectly and are operated via the LorchNet or LorchControl control units.
