A FANUC R-1000iA robot uses iRVision 2D to locate a randomly-placed toolbox in a part bin. The box is loaded onto a two-axis welding positioner where two FANUC ARC Mate 100iC robots use iRVision to locate welding paths.
The ARC Mate 100iC robots proceed to simulate welding using FANUC coordinated motion. Prior to welding the part, the ARC Mate 100iC robots run through the iRVision Tip Inspection to verify the condition of the welding tips. The 2-axis positioner allows the part to tilt while welding to maintain an optimum torch angle. It also allows rotates to reposition the part to the opposite side. The R-1000iA robot transfers the welded box from the positioner to a material removal station to simulate finish grinding using force sensing.
