We have an OTC power supply welbee 500 with a Fanuc arm. We are not able to adjust the burn back to allow adequate wire at the contact tip to prevent blowing tips. We are working with 4043 x.047 wire. We welcome any advice.

I have a customer using Panasonic robots with Lincoln power supplies experiencing random shielding gas shortages. We have checked the gas hoses, replaced electronic boards, replaced solonoids, and have a gas tracker on the gas line. The problem may last 1 to 4 welds at random times. When they experience this, they restart the program and it works fine. It happens 1 to 14 times per day at random times with random weld positions. We have asked Lincoln as well as Panasonic and neither have a fix. I thought it may be a positional issue but the hose never seems to be pinched or cut off. Have you experienced this issue before?

I am looking at a 2 headstock work cell and notice some have a door or curtain on both sides of the robot between the robot and the headstock and others don’t. Is there a reason for this? Standard possibly? as I want to do what’s right.

I am considering the use of robotic welding on a multi pass/multi start stop weldment I am fabricating. Would robotic welding be a good option (I have several thousand parts to fab).

Purchased Items Fanuc SIT Touch Sensing (RTL-J536-AT Fanuc Seam Tracking Welding (RTL-TAST-AT) Constant Path Software (RTL-R663) RJ3iC Controller(165 kg CAP 2655 mm reach Lincoln Power Wave 455M(Welder) Lincoln Wire Feeder(10R)K 1780-3 Tregaskiss Torch Cleaner All needed cables There are not a lot of (new replicated parts) that need hard facing but many that come back need build up with weld and machined back down, then go back on robot for hardfacing. the problem I have is, it would take to long to teach each part because it would not be the same wear on item. so is there software out there that can 3d scan an object, put into program to outline points of welding?

Hi, I am a manufacturing engineer with a lighting company and we are interested to purchase an arc-welding cell/robot. This is the first time we are exploring robotics. I know choosing the right integrator is very important in the process. I was wondering if you can tell me who are the three top integrators in the arc-welding world? I appreciate your help.

I'm using a Fanuc robot 120I mate with a Miller auto-axcess. The robot does not get a weld complete all of the time on the PLC. When the robot is running it program and welding the position after the arc end the weld contractor is still live for a brief sec.

I have an otc daihen robot almega v6-L with a otc power supply and a two turntable integration. I am having issues with the seam tracking. What adjustments do I need to make in the settings to make it more responsive on both linear welds and circular welds? Thanks, Jeff Hobson

Hello, I have two reports to improve the contact tips selection in a GMAW welding process; these two reports made by different divisions (the parts they are welding are different, maybe also different parameters of welding) have opposite recommendations based on the durability of the contact tips. One report says that fronius tip is more durable than euroricambi, but in the other report says that euroricambi have better performance because the tip is made by extrusion and the fronius tip is made by sintered process. This is true? An extruded contact tip is better than a sintered contact tip? Or maybe it’s a combination of parameters than can cause this different behavior. Please let me know what you think. Thanks and regards.

Hi. We have a motorman robot with fronius welling equipment. Our programmer is no longer in the company. We need to modify an existing program by making fillet welds larger. Have tried a few things with no luck. Any ideas?
