Hello Jessica, Both make a good robot and have good welding interfaces. Of these two specific brands, Motoman is much more mainstream in the north american robotics industry, thus more programmers with experience and a larger support network. I can't answer who has a better interface because that's just my opinion but if you were looking to train someone, Motoman has a very extensive training program. If you need assistance with your project, please let me know. Thanks, Johnathan

Jonathon’s comment below is accurate regarding mainstream robots. However I’d like to add a further consideration for you. It one this thing to consider user friendliness of the robot supplier but it takes on a different meaning went you connect the robot to welding equipment and which particular process you intend to use. At ABB we take pride in our fully integrated interfaces for all the major suppliers of welding equipment which also extends to the virtual world. I’m guessing in set up mode you’ll be spend significant time in programming and process validation. We have four labs set up here specifically for that purpose. If you would like to review the different welding equipment types integrated to an ABB solution I’d be happy to entertain it. (Email: mark.x.oxlade@us.abb.com)
