Through the use of vision the cost benefits of robotic arc welding can be realized in four major areas. They are arc on efficiency, deposition rates, positioner/fixturing, and quality. This paper addresses the adaptive capabilities (processing power) that the vision system must provide to realize these cost benefits.
