ROBOT "SEES", DECIDES AND ACTS

Developed for fully automatic welding of a wide variety of hull block subassemblies the Mitsui robot adopts MIG welding. The welding torch is suspended on a travelling gantry and has seven axes of freedom. Each axis is driven by electric hydraulic pulse motors or electric pulse motors through an open-loop type NC. The position of the welding line is defined by the original input data (welding line position and welding condition) and corrected data obtained from the visual sensing system which is controlled by a mini-computer (main-computer). The robot system is comprised of three sub-systems; a control data generating system, a driving control system and a visual sensing system.
