I want to duplicate a progam in a different location on a otc v6 with a fd11 controller and a fd teaching pendant, I want to be able to weld 3 of the same parts without teaching every individual part.

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?

Dear Experts , we want to guide a robotic welding arm to weld reinforcement steel mesh structures. These structures are up to 40 meters long, 2 meters high and 1.5 meters wide . They are used for bridge beams which our client makes for major freeway bridge construction. The weld mesh structures are then lowered into the molds where they fill the molds with concrete . They thread through the mesh pre-stressed steel cable before they pour the concrete. We would like to use a gantry mounted robotic arm which would travel along and above the weld mesh cages and the robotic welder would spot weld at a given interval at the intersection of the mesh to hold the structure together, instead of tie wire . The issue is that the mesh is never the same so we would need to scan the mesh ahead of the welding tip so to create a model, something like using SLAM process. This way the robot would know where to weld and its position at each steel rod cross section of the mesh that needs welding . I am wondering is there such a device already available or would we need to integrate the Lidar and the robotic arm ourselves. We have a client that has asked us to investigate the potential . We are look for a partner or a specialist to contract to help us with the application. Please contact me at brian@3dx.com.au . Regards Brian Rowland

Is there a programming methodology for Motoman DX100 or DX200 that allows for the specification of a series of welds with reference to a dictated origin, that allows for that series of welds to be copied multiple times with an offset referencing the dictated origin? eg, welding a part sequence that is repeated multiple times a specific distance apart. I would only want to do this to get the bulk of the points entered, then change from an offset reference to just the individual points so it is easier for an operator to read/understand/manipulate.

Is there a way to run a check run in auto with a motorman dx200 and miller auto access welder remotely i.e.. HMI? I know it can be done from the teach pendant.

I have a cell with 4 Kuka welding robots. They all weld at the same time. I have one robot, that at the end of the weld cycle leaves too much wire sticking out. The very next cycle if the wire is not cut off or backed up it will arc off and stop the cell. The wire feeder, torch and liner have been replaced and the problem still exists. Any idea of what could be causing this one robot with seemingly the same parameters to continually leave too much wire stick out?

We have acquired several IRC5 robotic cells. Upon modifying a weld start position with the modify position button, I inadvertently hit the message stating "Do not show this message again". The confirmation for the modpos therefore, is not showing upon using this function. How do I bring this message asking for confirmation of the modification? I'm guessing that a warm start will return the pendant to the default setting, but is there a another way to control this function?

I am using a Fanuc 120I with a servo torch and a Lincoln 455 Powerwave for .035" aluminum wire and we cannot get it to stop burning tips very often. The welds look great but it burns the tip at the start of the weld quite often. What causes this?

I'm using a Fanuc arc mate and can't get the weld to stop burning through my material which is aluminum. It's only the beginning of the weld and the end of the weld that burns through the material. What can i change so it will stop doing this and how do i change it?

The hand control screen is frozen - can't do anything with it. Can someone advise?

We are having problems with the and can't figure out why the welds look like they have porosity. We clean the tips and nozzels and it helps for a short time but can't consistently get a good weld.
