Robot Welding

Our robotic welding space is housed in a separate, dedicated area of our facility – equipped with three MIG welding robotic cells. We produce improved welding at every aspect of the process by increasing speed, producing quality welds, and reducing errors.

Advantages of robotic welding

Increased productivity, lower production costs, consistent quality, reduced waste. 

Robotic welding consistently delivers high-quality welds. Welding robots can achieve repeatability levels of up to ±0.02mm – a level of precision that is difficult to attain with manual welding. As robotic welders work tirelessly without breaks, automated welding can be performed two to four times faster than human welders, ensuring increased productivity.

Robotic welding can save hours per month, produce less waste due to fewer mistakes, reduce welding labour costs by up to 60%, and lower rework costs by up to 50%.

To leverage the many advantages and explore how our robotic welding equipment can benefit your business, contact the experts at Pyramid Engineering via phone, email, or chat links. We strive to respond promptly to customer queries, often within 24 hours or less.

Why choose Pyramid Engineering?

We aim to lead robotic welding innovation in Auckland. What does robotic welding mean for your next project? Think accelerated timelines, precision, and unparalleled structural integrity – powered by state-of-the-art technology.

Our expertise lies in knowing when and where to utilise robotic welding applications in a project like yours. Our 20,000 sq. foot facility is ready to accommodate and maximise your welding application. 

We use industry-leading OTC MIG (Metal Inert Gas ) welding units as our preferred welding technology. 

Understanding MIG Welding 

MIG welding, also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), is a highly efficient and versatile welding process favoured in many industries.  

MIG welding utilizes a continuously feeding wire electrode and a protective gas that shields the weld area from airborne contaminants. The process involves creating an electrical arc between the wire electrode and the metal workpieces, which melts the wire and fuses it with the base material forming a strong joint. 

Key advantages of MIG welding

1. High Efficiency: The continuous wire feeding system allows for longer, interrupted welds, increasing productivity and consistency. 

2. Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of metals and alloys, including mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminium. 

3. Clean and Controllable: The use of a shielding gas prevents oxidation, resulting in cleaner welds with less splatter.  

4. Better control on thin materials: MIG welding provides precise control over the welding process, making it ideal for thin-gauge materials. 

5. Strong, High-Quality Welds: MIG Welding Produces durable, high-quality welds that are ideal for both structural and cosmetic applications. 

Our Robot Technology 

In two of our robot welding cells, the OTC welding units are coupled with Motoman industrial robots. These are optimised for high-volume, high-speed operation. Welding operations using industrial robots require a little extra work setting up but repay that in faster cycle times. 

Our other robot cell consists of a modern OTC welding unit coupled with a Doosan cobot. Cobots operate a little slower than heavy-duty industrial robots. However, they are faster to get into production. They are ideal for low to medium-volume work.  


MIG welding is widely used in various manufacturing sectors. Our experience with Robotic MIG Welding is wide-ranging and includes machinery building, components used in electrical infrastructure, construction, and architectural fittings. 

Our Commitment 

At Pyramid Engineering, we leverage the efficiency and versatility of MIG welding to bring your project to life. Whatever the nature of your work, we will work with you to achieve the best results at the lowest overall cost. 


Robot welding – Frequently asked questions


What robotic welding machines do you have on-site?

  • OTC CD360 Weld units paired with Motoman, Yaskawa YR-SSF6 industrial robot 6-axis manipulators, and NX100 Control units. 

  • OTC P500L Weld unit paired with Doosan A0912 robot manipulator.  

What’s your typical project duration?

Projects range from a one-off run to parts we have been manufacturing in batches for customers over many years. The point at which it becomes more cost-effective to use robotic welding in place of manual welding depends on the nature and the quantity of the job. Our experts are available to advise on this when needed. 

What areas of New Zealand do you service for robot welding?

All robotic welding is performed in our facility in Silverdale, Auckland. From here we serve clients nationwide. Many of our clients have global footprints, and the items we manufacture for them are found throughout the world.
