The Future is Automation

The welding landscape is rapidly changing: Retiring welders and a shortage of young people entering the field create an immediate need for welding automation. ClassMate® systems help prepare students for the future job market alongside a welding or robotics curriculum. Here at Lincoln Electric Automation, we keep a pulse on the way automation is revolutionizing manufacturing. Our ClassMate systems expose students to new robotic welding technology used in workplaces worldwide.
