I work with an ArcMate and big sized work pieces. There is hundreds of weld beads and high tolerance assembly, so I need to expend a lot of time in sense touch and movements. I tried to omit some searches, but just don´t work and will not.
Long story short, there is some way I can change the programming lines from "SEARCH SEARCH SEARCH WELD WELD WELD" to "SEARCH WELD SEARCH WELD SEARCH WELD"? How can I deacrease significantly the movement time? How can I control the wire lenght before and after welding? Can I install a wire cutter in the robot arm? Can I control the burnback finely? Can I use the work piece to "burn out" the wire so I can control the wire lenght during movements?
(Laser and Vision options are not perfect because of high tolerance assembly and high cost, TAST don´t work because there is a lot of small weld beads)
Any help is welcome!
