DX200 Advanced Arc Weld Programming

This course provides instruction for programmers needing advanced programming and advanced welding information. Students are required to possess basic programming knowledge of the controller and a basic understanding of the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process prior to attending this training module.

Primary topics include:

  • Developing and setting weld files and weld jobs
  • Troubleshooting weld issues
  • Weave welding
  • Defining cubes
  • Using position variables
  • Programming incremental moves
  • Parallel shifting jobs
  • Programming external axes
  • Understanding touch sense & seam tracking

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 the lectures is enhanced with actual hands-on programming by students in Motoman's 13,400-sq.ft. training facility. Students work in teams to perform workshop exercises. Class size is kept small, typically 4 or fewer, to promote an interactive, hands-on atmosphere. Students work with each other and with the help of Motoman instructors to grasp the concepts of robot programming. To perform the hands-on practice exercises, students are typically assigned 2 to a programming pendant at Yaskawa Academy.

Course Materials

Students receive a course outline, objectives, and a manual, which details welding commands, programming techniques, and specific topics covered in the class. Students are urged to take notes, participate in discussions, and inquire about specific operating issues.
