Why Mechanize Your Welding & Cutting?

Increase Production
Imagine a carpenter today using a bit and brace to drill holes instead of using a power tool. Why then do we have welders holding a torch when it can be more accurately operated clamped to a motorized carriage?

Improve Weld/Cut Quality and Appearance
The machine moves the torch at a precise rate of travel and maintains torch to work distance as well as angle. This reduces defects and costly repairs such as grinding and touchup to blend starts and stops. Mechanization allows an operator to continue a weld or cut without interruption.

Light Weight Portable Machines Can be Carried to the Workpiece
Bug-O machines are held in place with powerful magnets for ferrous applications or vacuum cups for non-ferrous applications. Material handling costs are greatly reduced due to Bug-O’s portability.

Work In All Positions
Whether flat, horizontal, vertical or overhead, our machines allow you to work in any position required for your application.

Rapid ROI
Bug-O equipment quickly increases production, quality & savings in material handling and a better work environment for welders and operators.

Increased Operator Safety
Reduce operator fatigue.

Short Learning Curve
Bug-O mechanized equipment is easy to use. Basic machine controls allow operators to control speed, direction and torch angle for cutting or welding.

Automated Welding & Cutting

What Most Effects Your Bottom Line?

Bug-O Systems May Have a Solution for You
Skilled Labor Shortage
The welding industry predicts that by the year 2022, the U.S. will have a shortage of over 450,000 skilled welding professionals. The effects of this coming shortage have been felt by shipyards, fabricators and the construction industry. With mechanization, a qualified welder is still necessary, however, due to the increased efficiency more welding can be achieved in less time with fewer operators. This not only addresses the shortage of welders but 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 can perform repetitive welds or cuts in production with little deviation while keeping parameters consistent. This precise speed and path control improves quality, deposition and appearance of your welds/cuts.
Reduce Material Handling and Rework
Having portable machinery that can be carried to the workpiece greatly reduces material handling costs. Mechanized equipment allows welding/cutting to be performed in all positions. With regulated travel speed and uniform heat input, distortion is greatly reduced, and rework is minimized.
Increasing Operator Safety
Mechanization allows welders/operators to be removed from the weld puddle and the harmful effects that result from daily exposure to welding. Operator fatigue is reduced since the welding/cutting is performed by the machine and simply monitored by the operator. Uncomfortable repositioning that occurs with manual welding is not experienced.

Bug-O Systems is committed to empowering our customers by providing operator- controlled mechanized solutions for their welding, cutting and custom applications.
