On-Line Detection and Tracking Welding Control Technology of Thin-Walled Bellow
In order to improve the welding speed, quality and automation level of thin-walled bellow, on-line detection and tracking welding control technology is proposed which includes on-line detection system and tracking welding control system. Based on laser sensor, on-line detection system can rapidly filter the data, and the data is stored in a queue, the control system which is based on motion control card is developed by using ActiveX controls for programming, VB is used to develop the integrated user operating system, other control tasks are completely integrated on this system to realize real-time welding control bellow. Results showed that the system is reliable and effectively, the automation level of the bellow welding is greatly improved.
