Description Classroom lectures on programming commands are reinforced with demonstrations. Commands and topics are related to real-world examples and applications. Material covered in lectures is enhanced with actual hands-on programming by students in Motoman's 8,500-sq.ft. training facility. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises, including actual "live arc" welding exercises which emphasize commands covered in class lectures. These welding exercises are based on the GMAW process, using a constant voltage power source and mild steel wire. Class size is kept small, typically 12 or fewer, to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. This allows students to work closely with each other and Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of robot welding.
Topics Students learn to perform advanced functions and apply weld- specific commands.

Primary topics include:

  • Development and setting of weld files, jobs, etc.
  • Development of welder condition files
  • Welding related iuctions
  • Weld troubleshooting
  • Weave welding
  • Cube definitions
  • Position variables
  • Incremental moves
  • Parallel shift
  • External axes programming
  • Touch sense & seam tracking overview
Overview The MRC Advanced Arc Welding Module, an advanced course on Motoman K-, and SK-series industrial robots, provides programming instruction for operators with a working knowledge of the MRC controller. As a minimum, the student should have a basic understanding of the GMAW process.
Materials Students receive the MRC Advanced Arc Welding Programming manual, which details welding commands and programming techniques for the Motoman MRC controller. Additional handouts relate to specific topics covered in the class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in discussions, and to bring up specific programming issues.
Length This module is a 4.5-day training class. On-Site classes are demand based and should be scheduled 60-90 days in advance to ensure availability.
Prerequisite The MRC Basic Arc Welding Programming Module is a prerequisite to this module.
