Touch sensor software function
This function is to check the position of workpiece by sensing motion using of welding wire or gas nozzle. The robot can do the shifting operation based on the data what is checked by the touch sensing movement. The touch sensing motion is already prepared as the library and can be added to the program by selecting motion type. So, the programmer can reduce the programming time. This function can be used to identify the (incorrect) placement of workpieces. A tension is generated between the wire and the workpiece to determine the position. In case there is deviation between original and current location, the amount of deviation will be used as shift data and the robot can shift according to the shift data.
