Integrated Robotic Welding Software
The Universal Weldcom Interface (UWI) is designed for robotic welding power sources with modern digital interfaces. It provides a common interface while presenting information using power source manufacturer’s terminology. The software programs for UWI will operate the Miller (Auto-Continuum™), Lincoln (Power Wave®), SKS (LSQ) and OTC (Welbee) digital power sources.
Programming with the UWI involves setting up an arc process table which is used to define the parameters that can be used for process control. There are up to 16 processes that can be defined – depending on power supply brand – but at least one is required. Arc welding instructions require a process number to be specified to list the proper parameters.
This video demonstrates standard features of the Universal Weldcom Interface (UWI) for YRC1000 robot teach pendants. Features specific to Lincoln Power Wave include:
Access to process libraries
Managing welder settings
Displaying live weld data
Edit common process parameters (amps/volts)
Arc monitoring support
