  • Publication number: 20220388167
    Abstract: In order to be able to automatically eliminate discrepancies, arising in the course of the configuration of a robot-object system environment, between the reality of the robot-object system environment and its digital representation as a CAD model, without manual on-site commissioning of the robot-object system environment with adaptation of the CAD model to the reality, the following is proposed for configuring a robot-object system environment having at least one object and having a robot for object manipulation and object sensing: synchronizing a digital robot twin, which digitally represents the robot-object system environment and controls the robot for the object manipulation on the basis of a control program, for expedient use of the robot in the robot-object system environment during the object manipulation, appropriately and, in this regard, in one or two stages.

  • Patent number: 11389891
    Abstract: A method for butt-welding of sheet metal, especially bodywork in the motor vehicle industry, where at least two flat workpieces with any desired contours are fed to a machining process. In a first sub-process, the workpieces are positioned in relation to one another forming a minimal gap and secured in place with holding means. In another sub-process, the position and width of the gap are measured continuously immediately before welding together and the measurements are used to control a laser welding head. The laser welding head is fit with a rotatable twin-spot lens, where the relative alignment of a main spot to an auxiliary spot is controlled depending on the absolute position of the gap and the gap width during the welding process while the processing lens of the laser welding head is rotated around the laser beam axis with the angle of rotation alpha.
