In the production process of axles, the quality of axle welding is related to the safety of automobiles. The axle must not only bear the weight and force, but also bear the larger bending moment and torque caused by the dynamic load and static load. For this reason, the axles are required to have sufficient strength, rigidity and toughness, which puts forward high requirements on the "welding quality" of the axles.
Welding is a conventional processing method in modern machinery manufacturing and is widely used in automobile manufacturing; it is also a key link in the manufacture of axles. In the manufacture of axles, welding production has the characteristics of large batches, fast production speed, and high welding accuracy requirements.
At present, the production of axles is labor-intensive, the working environment is harsh, the welding quality is not high, and the production flexibility is poor, which cannot meet the needs of modern production. With the continuous deepening of intelligent manufacturing, many axle manufacturing companies have actively introduced flexible automated welding control systems. The welding process of the welding system is more mature and safe, and meets the requirements of the manufacturing precision of automobile axles.
Improving the stability and adaptability of the automatic welding production line for axles is of great significance to the production of axles with good quality and high technical content.
Among the many welds in the axle welding, the two circumferential welds between the deformed axle tube and the axle housing are particularly critical. They are integrated with the drive axle housing to fix the axial relative positions of the left and right drive wheels, and support the frame and its upper part together. The mass of each assembly can bear the road reaction force and moment transmitted by the wheels when the car is running, and transmit it to the frame through the suspension.
The sensor is used in the automatic production line of vehicle axle welding and has been widely used. The combination of automatic welding equipment and robotic welding tracking system can maximize the characteristics of robots or automatic welding machines; meet the increasing demand for multi-product and small-batch production; and become a guarantee for high-quality products.
【ATINY】 Robotic Weld Tracking System is integrated with the axle automatic welding workstation. According to the distribution characteristics of the axle welds, through data analysis of the number, length, deformation, etc. of the welds, the welding gun can be effectively adjusted for high-quality welding, making production more enjoyable. Flexibility and welding quality are also guaranteed.
It can replace the traditional "crowd tactics", and is more conducive to the comprehensive cost control and management of automobile manufacturers, greatly improving the level of productivity, and increasing the competitiveness of automobile manufacturers.
Take a vehicle axle automatic welding production line as an example.
It can be divided into several areas, such as feeding area, manual welding area, automatic production welding area, manual repair welding leakage test area, and product outlet. The entire system includes sequential welding, calibration, and More than a dozen processes such as boring and washing, repair welding, cooling, leak testing, and inspection.
After the automatic welding part uses the welding robot to adapt to the robot welding seam tracking system, it can automatically center, be compatible with incompatible workpieces, and adapt to workpiece deviations, ensuring that the welding torch is always in the ship shape, connecting plate and other welding seams The welding position can complete automatic welding continuously at one time.
