Virtual Welding Robotics from Fronius is now available to instructors to assist the training of robot programmers. The system shows the user whether they have programmed the robot correctly or if the welding torch was handled in the right way, says the company. A virtual instructor provides specific instructions as to which corrective movements should be made if the system identifies deviations from the ideal torch guidance.
In a subsequent simulated step, the weld seam can be illustrated to visually assess the welding result. Also the weld seam and spatter can be visualised after completing the programmed deployment of the robot torch, thanks to the simulator.
