Academy / Robotics Training In-Person / Canada - ON / DX200 Advanced Programming with Arc Welding with FRONIUS WELDCOM or non-welder specific

Who Should Attend

The DX200 Advanced Arc Welding Module, an advanced course on Yaskawa Motoman DX-series industrial robots, provides programming instruction for operators with a working knowledge of the DX controller. As a minimum, the student should have a basic understanding of the GMAW process. The DX200 Basic Programming course is a prerequisite to this module.

Course Overview

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 the Yaskawa Motoman Robotics Canada 2400 square foot demonstration and training laboratory. Students working 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. Classroom instruction includes advanced information on arc welding, cube definition, analog outputs, customizing speed choices, default speeds, parallel shift, and other information pertinent to welding systems. Classes are kept small in size, typically 4 or fewer students, in order to promote an interactive, hands-on learning atmosphere. This allows the students to work with each other and YMC instructors in order to grasp the concepts of robot welding

Course Materials

Students receive the DX200 Advanced Arc Welding Programming manual, which details welding commands and programming techniques for the Motoman DX200 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.


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 instructions - weld troubleshooting - weave welding - cube definitions - position variables - incremental moves - parallel shift - external axes programming - touch sense overview


The DX200 Advanced Arc Welding Programming Module is a 5 day course. This course typically closes out 60 days in advance. For information regarding course registration, or other training courses offered by Yaskawa Academy Canada, contact our Training Coordinator at (905) 569-MOTO or your Regional Sales Manager.
