Continuous feeding of wire is also an automatic process in welding. Growths of automation in welding industries are increasing. In the 1960s, an industrial robot is produced in America. These robots were used to handle radioactive materials. These early robots were used to pick and place the material. During 1970s, Computers were developed to serve the intelligent controllers for automation. More advance automation is by using computer-aided design (CAD).
