Improvements to the welding process are often felt beyond the welding cell in upstream or downstream operations such as tooling, forming, weld prep, rework, inspection and post-weld cleaning. Measuring the effects of new welding processes or equipment may require input from other areas of the operation due to the potential wide-reaching impacts on the whole manufacturing process.
The lead VERA-enabled robot has a disc in its gripper. It shares this information with the secondary VERA robot, which has selected one of the correct nuts for this part and is positioning it onto the welder to be welded onto the disc. . Photo – Tim Jacobs
