Collaborative Robots [Cobots] reduce your scrap rate and increase your bottom line
The American Welding Society estimates a shortage of 500,000 welders in the US across all manufacturing industries.
This damages your bottom line and your reputation.
Our Cobots were engineered to solve these problems. Built to collaboratively work as partners with humans, Cobots augment your employees’ expertise and empower them to use their knowledge and skill set for more meaningful work.
We don't just sell you a robot. We teach you how to use and optimize it for your applications, creating a dependable, scalable tool to help your company be successful.
The best part? Increasing productivity and revenue through automation allows you to rid your employees of menial tasks and increase their salaries.
Complex problems require innovative solutions.
For over 50 years, Melton Machine has been a pioneer in the manufacturing industry. We introduced CoboWeldTIG in 2017, and the CoboWeldMIG in 2019.
These robotic machines provide flexibility combined with a user-friendly framework for automated welding. That means someone with little to no PC or robot experience can program the Cobot in minutes.
We're with you every step of the way, from setup and training to ongoing support. We are the only manufacturer that sets up the CoboWeld machines and trains our customers.
Melton is a Universal Robot Certified System Integrator and CoboWeld is a certified UR+ solution.

Melton Machine & Company has been on the leading edge of industrial technology since its founding in 1970 and has been designing industrial robotic automation systems for 50+ years. We design and manufacture systems in our 365,000-sq. ft. facility in the heart of the Midwest, in Washington, Missouri.
In 2017, we installed our first Cobot welding system, which can be used for a single application or shopwide. The easy-to-program Cobot, along with Melton’s proprietary CAP software, enables a welding shop to increase automation at a lower cost than other industrial robotic systems.
We design and build custom solutions, including tooling that can hold parts in place for joining, and we take pride in providing everything you need for your application. When your system is built, we invite you to our facility for comprehensive training, or you can choose to have our trained engineers and technicians set up and train your employees at your shop.
