FABTECH 2012: Robotic 3-D Cutting, Welding

Robotic systems can switch between multiple processes including arc welding, plasma cutting, oxyfuel bevel cutting, pre-heating, and the like, using precision tool changers. When oxyfuel cutting or pre-heating, the flame is constantly monitored to ensure its presence. In the event that the equipment loses the flame, the robot automatically re-ignites the torch without having to move to a set ignition point, continuing with a limited amount of error. When welding is required, the robot exchanges the plasma or oxyfuel torch for a welding torch.
