Paper Abstract

Unlike NC machine-tools, where the tool path is primary and the product shape results from it, in arc welding the product is primary, and the welder - human or robot - has to contend with poor fitups, bad preparations, inexact positionning etc. All this means one thing - adaptivity. The axtent to which this is reasonable is discussed, and then a research project, conducted at IICR with the aim to create an adaptive GMA robot, is presented.
