Control System of Bellows Welding Equipment Based on Motion Controller
In order to improve the integration and automation level of control system of bellows automatic welding equipment, an open control system of bellows welding equipment is proposed which is based on "PC+motion controller" according to the characteristics of welding bellows and current technology of welding control. IPC D610 and the motion card NextmoveES is effectively connectted by RS232 + RS232 / RS485 communication interface. And the integrated top software of control system is developped by using VB based on API function which is provided by controller, parameters setting and real time monitoring tasks module are completely integrated on one system. The syetem is reliable and effectively, the automation level of the bellows welding is greatly improved.
