NASCC 2017: Robotic Welding For Structural Steel Fabricators

NASCC: The Steel Conference

This year, the trade show took place in the city of San Antonio. It was the perfect occasion for our team to discover this beautiful place.

San Antonio

We would like to thank all of you for stopping by our booth. We really hope we could help you learn more about robotic welding and how BeamMaster Weld can help your fabrication shops.

ESAB in our Booth

This year we have shared our booth with our business partner ESAB. AGT recently became the first North American automation partner in there Integrator Partnership Program.

AGT’s Virtual Reality Viewers:

We have been said it was: “The coolest hangout of the show”

At the booth, we had some Virtual reality viewer as hangout and Louis Dicaire was pleased to introduce everyone to virtual reality.

With our viewer (or any google cardboard viewer) it is possible to have a better look at our BeamMaster weld (configuration BM48R2)

Workshop and Presentation done during the show :

BeamMaster Weld – Efficient Manufacturing from CAD to Production: Robotic welding for unique parts or how you can weld with a donut and a coffee.
