Fixtures/Tooling Details

The customer provided simple mechanical fixtures that were integrated into the robot system at Motoman. Frames are tack-welded together prior to being manually loaded onto the positioner fixtures by an operator. Safety features inherent to the ArcWorld 6016-HD system allows the operator to unload/load one side of the positioner while the SK16 robot is welding on the other. Touch-sensing is used to compensate for minor variances in part fit-up. Customer is making ongoing upstream enhancements to improve fit-up and reduce the amount of touch-sensing required.
