Big Trends in Welding AutomationIn order to improve production efficiency, many factories have improved and optimized their welding equipment;
Some purchased welding robots; some upgraded their own automated welding equipment.
However, in the actual production process, there is still the problem of welding deviation, and the company has to arrange workers to supervise the welding station to avoid the problem of welding deviation.
There are also some customers who use welding robots and need to recruit a robot engineer to perform TCP calibration repeatedly.
We can draw a conclusion: Although the company has upgraded the welding equipment, it still needs manual labor to solve the problem of partial welding.
Is there any way to avoid labor?The answer is: YES; what we said above requires manual work, but what is more important is that human eyes are needed to identify and judge the position of the weld, so as to perform accurate welding; and the current laser weld tracker is for welding equipment. and welding robots equipped with eyes.
And compared with the human eye, the laser seam tracker also has the following advantages:1.24 hours of continuous work;
2. Not afraid of arc light;
3. Not afraid of smoke and splashes;
4. The data processed by the algorithm makes it more accurate;
This is also the reason why the hot welding production fields such as containers, automobiles, and steel cylinders are all adding "eyes of welding" to their welding equipment;
Weld seam deviation prediction is the key to welding seam tracking control, which is of great significance for realizing welding automation and ensuring welding quality. It upgrades automatic welding equipment to intelligent welding equipment.
