Abicor Binzel and Canadian robotics company Novarc Technologies, based in Vancouver, BC, have formed a North American sales agreement.

Through this sales agreement, Novarc will partner with the North American  Abicor Binzel sales team to market Novarc’s breakthrough collaborative Spool Welding Robot (“SWR”)  with Abicor Binzel’s welding torches and seam tracking sensors to clients in the US, Canada and Mexico.

Novarc’s SWR is the world’s first welding collaborative robot, a semi-automated robotic solution designed for pipe welding, small pressure vessel manufacturing and other 1G welding applications. The collaborative robot utilizes a three axis robotic arm at the end of a long reach manipulator, which increases the dexterity and flexibility of the human operator, improving productivity on the shop floor and reducing costs for the pipe shop.

Abicor-Binzel is an established brand known for bringing innovative high quality welding products to the market, and we felt they were a natural fit for our technology because of their expertise and innovation in the welding industry,” says Soroush Karimzadeh, CEO of Novarc Technologies. 

“The Novarc SWR pipe welding system is a perfect fit with our range of product offerings of weld torches, seam tracking sensors and associated peripherals. The complete package will allow us to better serve our customers within this market segment and falls in line with our strategy and goals to offer our customers state-of-art technology and cost saving solutions,” says John Kaylor, Abicor Binzel North American president.
