Project Type MQP Submission date 2007-08-23 Authors Jeffrey Madden, ME Martin Putnam Stowell, ME URN E-project-082307-102950 Center Wuhan, China Sponsor Huazhong University of Science and Technology Title Welding Fixture with Active Position Adapting Functions Advisors Rong, Yiming, ME Hou, Zhikun, PH Availability unrestricted
Robotic welding requires specialized fixtures to accurately hold the work piece during the welding operation. Despite the large variety of welding fixtures available today the focus has shifted in making the welding arms more versatile, not the fixture. To address this issue, we designed and constructed a prototype welding fixture with enhanced mobility. The new fixture design reduces cycle time and operator labor while increasing functionality; and allows complex welding operations to be completed on simple two axis welding arms.
