  • Patent number: 7745758
    Abstract: To provide an arc start method in a consumable electrode type arc welding method capable of firmly executing arc start and capable of executing high quality high speed welding by restraining a welding defect from being brought about therefor, at a portion of a wire projected from a welding tip, a temperature of a front end portion of the wire is made to be at a temperature higher than a temperature of a portion thereof near the welding tip. The front end portion of the wire is preheated to 300° C. or higher, preferably, 450° C. or higher. The front end portion of the wire is preheated by generating arc for preheating. The preheating arc is generated in a spot-like shape at a position near a terminal end portion of a predetermined welding line by constituting a current lower than a welding current.

  • Publication number: 20060213888
    Abstract: There is provided a welding method and a welding equipment, in each of which it is possible to detect a weld abnormality, moreover it is possible to detect a generation position and a length of that abnormality, and further it is possible to perform a repair of a weld abnormality part. After a weld start signal has been inputted, a case where a welding current and a welding voltage, which have been detected by a welding current/voltage detection means, are outside set ranges is made the weld abnormality by an abnormality discrimination means. An abnormality generation time instant and an abnormality termination time instant are calculated with a start signal input timing being made a time axis reference by a time instant calculation means. An abnormality generation position and an abnormality terminus position are operated from data of the time instants and a robot position information by an operation means.

  • Publication number: 20060208029
    Abstract: To provide a wire aiming position control method and position control apparatus capable of accurately feeding a welding wire to an aiming position of a welded member regardless of a change in an amount of twisting the wire and to provide a wire aiming position control method and position control apparatus capable of accurately ensuring an aiming position of a torch and capable of ensuring stable welding quality even in thin plate welding, an intersection K1 of a linear line L1 connecting a center of a tip 10 and a wire front end and an extension plane L2 including an imaginary aiming position K disposed at a predetermined position is calculated. A wire displacement C constituting a distance between the intersection K1 and the imaginary aiming position K is calculated. At least either one of a welding wire W and a welded member 14 is corrected along the extension plane L2 by an amount of the wire displacement C.

  • Publication number: 20050103766
    Abstract: An automatic groove-tracing welding system is capable of carrying out a welding operation, particularly, a welding operation involving weaving, without requiring monitoring even if conditions of a groove is different from design conditions of the groove. An image processor 3 receives an image signal representing an image of a weld zone 52 including the tip of a welding wire from a camera head 2 provided with a CCD camera, processes the image of the weld zone 52 to determine the position of a groove, calculates the positional relation of the groove with a welding torch 1, and sends a position correction for correcting the position of the welding torch 1 so that the welding path of the tip of the welding torch 1 may coincide with a predetermined middle part in the groove to a robot controller 43 for controlling a welding robot.
