Adaptive arc welding with part and weld Inspection

Manufacturers of metal fabrications know that to effectively automate the welding of such assemblies requires technology that adapts to real-life part variances. To address position errors, gap and area variations, and weld shape changes, Kawasaki Adaptive Welding examines the weld joint and automatically adjusts weld parameters, weave pattern or number of passes while the robot is welding or in pre-scan mode. Kawasaki's robotic arc welding solutions deliver an automated process by combining multiple sensor technologies -- touch sensing, through-the-arc and laser vision -- to gather joint and weld seam information, both before and during welding, and integrating the data collected to adaptive software tables that define welding limits of travel speed, wire feed speed, percent fill, and weave width modifiers per pass.
