ETT for Welding Applications

Years of welders’ experience replicated by a robot

Traditional programming of a robot for welding applications can be a complex and time-consuming process, often requiring the collaboration between an experienced welder and a robot programmer. Achieving the correct angle, speed, and trajectory of the welding tool to ensure precise and quality welds can be a challenging task. However, with our Easy to Teach system, we eliminate the need for a dedicated robot programmer and empower experienced welders to take control. Even without the prior robotics or programming knowledge, an experienced welder can effectively demonstrate the desired welding techniques to an industrial robot. By simply showing the robot the correct movements and parameters, the Easy to Teach system captures and replicates the welder’s expertise. This innovative approach not only streamlines the programming process, but also allows the welders to transfer years of experience and the know-how directly to the robot. With Easy to Teach, welding operations become more accessible, efficient, and accurate, opening up new possibilities for robotic welding in smaller batches.

Advantages of the ETT:

  • Drastically reduced robot programming time: The Easy to Teach system significantly reduces the time required for the robot setup, cutting it from entire shifts to just minutes.
  • Transferring the know-how: Record and transfer years of experience and expertise from skilled workers to an industrial robot.
  • No-coding solution: Even a worker with minimal training can easily operate the system after a short introduction, eliminating the need for specialised robotics or programming knowledge.
  • High accuracy: The system offers precision up to 1mm, ensuring accurate and reliable performance in various applications.
  • High data collection rate: The tracker collects a substantial amount of data, capturing anywhere from 75 to 163 points per second where each point carries the coordinates, tool angles and time-stamp.
  • Flexible path editing: Our software allows to edit the recorded paths to your liking, allowing to adjust the speed, tool angle, and position of each gathered point or the whole trajectory.
  • Integration with regular tools: For welding applications we can provide a 3D printed mock-up welding torch with our tracker, allowing workers to use their familiar instrument to teach the robot, enhancing efficiency and ease of use.
  • Customisable function buttons: Additional function buttons can be added to the tools, such as ‘Arc On/Off’, ‘Rotate the Table’, ‘Make the Weaving Function’ and others, further enhancing control and functionality.
  • Scalability: By adding more optical cameras, the working area can be expanded or the accuracy of the solution can be increased, adapting to specific production needs.
  • Remote path recording: The ETT solution can also provide the ability to record the paths in a different location than the robot itself, providing flexibility and convenience in setup and teaching.
  • Continuous software development and updates: Our software is being constantly developed and updated, ensuring that users benefit from the latest features and improvements.
  • Easy setup process: The system is designed for easy and straightforward setup, minimising downtime, and maximising productivity.
  • Protective, 3D printed camera cases: Special, 3D printed can protect the cameras when they are set up in production while the robot is working, preventing damage from dust, paint, or other materials.
