Abstract:The main goal of the research is to analyse the motions made by the welding robot and to find wasteful motions. A secondary goal is to provide recommendations that ASN can use to decrease wasteful motions and thus increase the arc-on time. To find the wasteful motions of the welding robot all the motions of the welding robot were analysed. Also, an extensive literature study on the optimization of the welding robots was conducted. Based on the results of the analysis and the findings of this literature study the motions were categorized, and the definition of wasteful motions was determined. Then, a time analysis of the motions per category was completed by performing a simulation with DTPS. The accuracy of DTPS was tested after comparing the simulation time results of two products with the time results from video footage of the welding robot. Once the definition of wasteful motions was defined, and a time analysis of the motions per category was completed, the optimization possibilities for the reduction of wasteful motions were investigated.
