AGT at booth #B27068

For our 7th participation of the Fabtech, we had a 10’x10′ booth that quickly became one of the busiest of our alley. Actually, robotic welding systems are becoming an indispensable asset for every fabrication shop.

We also had a lot of attraction for our BeamMaster Weld, our robotic welding system for the structural steel fabrication.


Steel Beam Assembly Session:


Louis Dicaire, General Manager and Associate at AGT Robotics held a conference on Robotic welding for unique parts or how you can weld with a donut and a coffee.
