UK’s Biggest Robotic Welding Line

Tata Steele is Europe’s second largest steel producer, with steelmaking in the UK and Netherlands and manufacturing plants across Europe.

On 15 February 2017, Tata Steel unveiled a new high-tech robotic welding line at its Automotive Service Centre in Wednesfield, West Midlands {where more than a thousand car parts can be welded every hour}.

Tata Steel built 1.7 million cars {almost 80 per cent of those being exported} in 2016 alone.

The launch of their new robotic welding line trebles the Centre’s capacity to produce tailor-welded blanks, special sheets of steel made from different thicknesses which are frequently used for car door panels, enable manufacturers to make lighter vehicles with lower emissions whilst increased miles per gallon.

What an exciting development for the UK’s steel industry!
