Valk Welding, Netherlands - IFR-Partner

Welding wire sensing method detects all weld deviations and shapes

If a work piece has tolerances, the robot programme has to be modified. The tolerance results in the welding robot failing to put the weld in the right position, which calls for subsequent processing and manual correction of the welding programme. But the welding robot can make that correction itself.
