Robotics, Welding and Knowledge, for the future of robotic welding
Welding is one of the traditional applications of industrial robots but its application to the production of small series is still limited. Main reasons for this are the limitations in offline programming, namely automatic path planning, the calibration of the system and the welding parametrization. The Trilogy pilot will combine automatic robot program generation, with advanced sensing and machine learning for welding parametrization to fully exploit the potential of robotized welding in small batches. Due to the complexity of robotized welding in large and the timeframe for the WeldGalaxy pilot, the Trilogy pilot approach is focused in a specific application area, structural steel, but successful results present significant potential for expansion in different application areas.
