The activity includes: a presentation, student activity, and field diagram!

Introduction:

Robotic arms are excellent for performing precision repetitive welding operations. Welding in the field or on small projects is still done by hand but mass-produced welds such as with the transportation industry have often moved to automated robotic processes. This process can be broken down to the below sequence of steps.

  1. A home or safe start location
  2. A position above the object to be welded A position at the object to begin the weld
  3. A clear path to follow
  4. A position at the end of weld

In this activity you will learn how to make a basic Weld Line operation in blockly using the Pen Tool End Effector. Your Instructor will mark specific locations on the field diagram that need a weld applied. Through this activity you will learn how to program the robot to Jump move the Pen Tool to a location and Move a distance from that location simulating a welding pattern.
