Robotic Welding

Welding using robotic arms is a long established practice in industry.

Robot Welding simulates the operation of a robotic welding arm with all the operating functions of a real robot. 
This program is useful for schools coding software requirements. Robot Welding brings to the classroom an easy to use interface with a realistic 3D graphical robotic welding arm at an affordable price. This program is useful to demonstrate the principles behind a robotic welding arm and enable students to write control programs that weld steel rods together placed on a table. This simulates a typical robotic arm scenario found in industry.

The student Controls the robot by clicking on icons that control each of the robots stepper motors. The parts of the robot are colour coded for easy identification. 

Program robot arm with powerful control language. 
A powerful programming language is included that allows a script of commands to control and move each element of the robotic welding arm. The language uses simple commands that students can get to grips with quickly. Robot Welding is specially designed for use in the classroom, this is reflected in the easy to use programming language, Programs contain primitive commands such as: – 
MOVE 1000,200,392 
All commands can be placed in procedures. The robotic arm incorporates sensors enabling feedback to be used in programs. Decision-making IF statements and loops with the REPEAT and WHILE commands can be used in programs. The MOVE command allows easy movement to a specific Cartesian co-ordinate. Programs can be saved for future use. 

Weld steel bars. 
A 3D table contains steel bars to be welded together, the end of the robotic arm has a welder bolted on.
The robot is programmed to weld each bar together, there are three rows of bars to be welded. Steel bars can be re-positioned so a new program is need to move the arm to weld joints. Weld joints can be undone after the program has finished. The robot can use X,Y,Z Cartesian co-ordinates to move to a specific point.
