Welding Robot Into A Smart Factory Protagonist Is An Inevitable Trend
Welding robot into a smart factory "protagonist" is an inevitable trend
The development of electronic technology, computer technology, numerical control and robot technology has provided favorable conditions for the automation of the welding process and has penetrated into various fields of welding.
Robot welding has an unparalleled advantage over welding, welding work intensity, poor working environment, welding dust, welding splash, welding arc and other great harm to the human body, and welding robot operation is relatively simple, it has a closed independent workstation, The operator can finish the welding work outside the workstation, and the worker's health is well protected. Workers need to rest, welding robots can work continuously, the production efficiency is more than 3 times the manual, but also reduce the cost of manual management. The same time as the above-
Welding robots are also widely used in many applications, such as heavy machinery, electrical and electronic, metal processing, aerospace, processing industry, transportation and shipbuilding. According to the welding process technology, the welding robot is divided into gas welding robot, arc welding robot, laser welding robot and spot welding robot. It is also possible to select different types of welding robots depending on the nature of the material to be welded, the accuracy required, and the level of refinement required for the finished product.
Welding robot automation application problems still exist
Despite its immense advantage, the development of the welding robot market is also facing some challenges due to its high initial cost. Manufacturers around the world are concerned about the additional costs of deploying robots throughout the production line. In addition, the lack of a wide range of applications in small and medium-sized enterprises will hinder the market penetration of welding robots. Another factor that challenges the growth of the welding robot market is the lack of skilled technical staff. Manufacturers need to hire a professional technical team to maintain and repair robotic equipment to ensure the continuity of production activities along the production line.
In order to overcome the influence of various uncertainties in the welding process on the quality of precision welding, it is urgent to adopt the information feedback and intelligent control technology to improve the adaptability or intelligent level of the current welding robot so as to realize the initial welding identification and autonomy Guidance, real-time weld correction and tracking, welding pool dynamic characteristics of information acquisition, process parameters adaptive adjustment and weld forming real-time control, that is, to achieve the autonomy of the robot welding process intelligent control, so as to make up the welding robot in the automatic welding insufficient.
