Explore our most sought-after operator-controlled industrial cutting machines and welding systems.
Looking for Mechanized Solutions for Your Welding & Cutting Process?
A carpenter today uses a power tool instead of a bit and a brace to drill holes. Now, in the same way, welders perform accurate quality welds by having their torch clamped to a motorized carriage. This mechanization is consistent and provides better control than hand welding. Welding Mechanization Solutions improve production with repeatable results increasing operator factor.
Improve Weld/Cut Quality and Appearance
The machine moves the torch at a precise rate of travel and maintains the torch to work distance as well as angle. As a result, it reduces defects and costly repairs such as grinding to blend starts and stops. Mechanized industrial cutting machines and automated welding systems allow operators to continue a weld or cut without interruption.
Lightweight Portable Machines are Carried to the Workpiece
Bug-O cutting and welding machines hold powerful magnets in place for ferrous applications or vacuum cups for non-ferrous applications. Reduce material handling costs with Bug-O’s portability.
Work In All Positions
Whether flat, horizontal, vertical, or overhead, our cutting and welding mechanization systems allow you to work in any position required for your application.
Bug-O equipment increases cutting and welding productivity and quality quickly when compared to welding automation tools. Save money while reducing material handling. Furthermore, you can create a better work environment for your welders and operators.
Increased Operator Safety
Reduce operator fatigue.
Short Learning Curve
With basic machine controls, operators can control speed, direction, and torch angle.

What Affects Your Bottom Line the Most?
Bug-O Systems May Have a Solution for You
Skilled Labor Shortage
The welding industry (AWS) predicts that by the year 2027, the U.S. will need 360,000 new welding professionals. Shipyards, fabricators, and the construction industry are all affected by this shortfall. Although welding mechanization still requires qualified welders, the increased efficiency allows for more welding to be accomplished.
Mechanization addresses the welder shortage. Furthermore, compared to welding automation, mechanization allows facilities to achieve greater efficiency and profitability while utilizing their workforce to their greatest potential.
Meeting Production Needs
Production is all about finding ways to complete more work faster while maintaining quality. A motorized carriage performs repetitive welds or cuts in production with little deviation. Meanwhile, parameters remain consistent. This precise speed and path control improves cut or weld quality, deposition, and appearance. Cutting and welding mechanization drastically improve the efficiency of cutting and welding processes.
Reduce Material Handling and Rework
Carry portable machinery to the workpiece. This greatly reduces material handling costs. Moreover, mechanized welding systems and industrial cutting machines allow welding/cutting to be performed in all positions. Reduce distortion and minimize rework with the help of regulated travel speed and uniform heat input.
Increasing Operator Safety
Welders/operators are removed from the weld puddle and harmful welding exposure effects with Bug-O mechanization. Operator fatigue is reduced since the welding/cutting is performed by the machine and simply monitored by the operator. Additionally, welding mechanization avoids any uncomfortable repositioning that tends to occur with manual welding.
