Battlebots is a popular show on Comedy Central where robots are given
the opportunity to face off and compete with each other.
The show has recently set up an area where robots that have been
damaged in competition can go to be repaired.
- The Lincoln Electric Co., Cleveland, has teamed with BattleBots
to provide a robot "triage" area where contestants can bring their
robots for welding repairs.
- The competition lasts six days, and robots advance from elimination rounds to the final championship.
- We have seen some robots so damaged that they have come to us as parts in a box.
- But we perform welds quickly and professionally, which means robots can be ready for their next match.
- When we first began competitions with 80 or so robots, our staff would handle the repairs.
- But now that the average competition draws between 500 and 600 robots, we are happy to have Lincoln on board.
