Manufacturing today is facing a shortage of skilled welders, a situation that looks like it won’t go away any time soon. One of the ideas to address this issue is to create a system for remote automated welding or “tele-welding.”
EWI is currently engaged in a project to develop a tele-welding system for use in shipyards. Challenges, plans, and progress is discussed in Tele-welding: Confronting a Skilled Labor Shortage with Smart Technology, a paper by EWI Principal Engineer Connie LaMorte.
