Taking a critical look at programming time
Offline programming definitely saves a lot of time. Ezgi Karadas: "But we also look critically at the programming time and especially at the ease with which we can create welding programms. Because DTPS has been developed specifically for the welding process, we experience DTPS as very user-friendly and less complicated than other systems".
Welding seam search takes time
"All in all, 25% of the time is spent on weld seam searches. If you make sure in the preliminary process that the typesetting is within the tolerances, you can limit the search routine to only the first piece in the batch. To save even more time, we are considering using the Arc-Eye laser camera system. This corrects the trajectory of the welding robot in real time, so that it always follows the weld exactly.
