Robot welding

ROBOT WELDING


Our primary process is robot welding. We have extensive experience and many references in Denmark and abroad. Delfois' software package also originated from welding, which makes it the leading OLP platform within robot welding.

 


 


Delfoi ARC

Delfoi ARC 4 is a parametric and feature-based offline programming software. Based on selected parameters and features, the program can effectively utilize the features of the 3D CAD model and the internal WPS (Welding Procedure Specification) database of the software. The software creates accurate, error-free and homogeneous and high-quality welding programs regardless of the robot brand or model thanks to Delfoi ARC's unique, universal robot code support.

Program generation is fast and faultless. Programming downtime shrinks substantially compared to the downtime that would normally be needed when programming a robot online by teaching.

 

  • Fast and easy: semi-automatic programming with user friendly user interface.
  • High quality programs: integrated quality control and WPS (Welding Procedure Specification).
  • Accurate tool paths: advanced calibration tools and trajectory management.
  • Generic: supports ABB, Fanuc, KUKA, Yaskawa Motoman, Kawasaki, Panasonic, IGM, CLOOS, Reis, Universal Robots etc.

 

Process features

  • 'Straight weld' wizard.
  • 'Curved weld' wizard.
  • Seam search management (1D, 2D, 3D).
  • Multi-pass welding management and automatic generation of passes.
  • Stitch welding.
  • Sharp corner welding management.
  • Automated end flare angles.
  • Copying, chaining, grouping and mirroring (for mirror symmetric work pieces) of welds.
  • Management of welding process settings and features (e.g. welding voltages, welding speeds and seam tracking).
  • WPS welding parameter database.
  • Robot configuration management.
  • Tool change management.
  • Automated, unrestricted calculation/management of all external robot axes (e.g. gantry positioners, linear tracks and multi-axis weld positioning devices).
  • Easy and fast fine adjustment of all weld paths and the robots via and moving points.
  • Path check functionality.
  • Read out process data.
  • Versatile calibration tools to ensure extreme precision in the programming of modelled cells.

 

Simulation features

  • A wide-ranging component library for use in cell layout-modelling - over 1000 default robot and weld-positioner models and dozens of smart, parametric components, such as conveyor belts, light curtains and safety barriers.
  • Automatic detection of collisions and "near-miss" incidents with visual feedback.
  • Cell layout planning and fast positioning of components within a cell.
  • Review of the robot's working envelope.
  • Automatic detection of violations of axis limits with visual feedback.
  • Automatic detection of robot singularity points.
  • Fast and effective simulation of created welding programs, either in real time or set to a variable speed.
  • Option to save the simulated program in either 3D-PDF or AVI format and easily share the file with others.
