Laser welding robots for aerospace applications


OFweek Laser News: The use of welded integral fuselage panels instead of traditional riveted fuselage panels can greatly reduce component weight, reduce manufacturing costs, and increase production efficiency, thus becoming one of the development trends of large civil aircraft manufacturing technology. Because the double laser beam welding is more effective for the weight reduction effect of the skin long raft structure, and has better spatial accessibility for complex components, it has received extensive attention. At present, aeronautical manufacturing companies such as Airbus have adopted laser-welded overall fuselage wallboard manufacturing technology on their various models. However, the welding-based overall fuselage wall manufacturing technology is one of the difficulties in contemporary civil machine manufacturing technology. At present, the new aluminum alloy welding technology of the fuselage wall panel in the design scheme of large passenger aircraft in China has its own characteristics.

Due to its high repeatability, reliability and applicability, robots are used in all walks of life. At present, the aerospace product manufacturing process is still labor intensive, complicated in process, poor working conditions, supplemented by a large number of fixtures and hand-made. Mainly. Insufficient automation production capacity has become a bottleneck restricting the reliability and production capacity of weapons and equipment. Under the background of China's vigorous development of aerospace, aerospace manufacturing enterprises use industrial robots for automated production, which is of great significance to the transformation and upgrading of production models and the improvement of advanced manufacturing capabilities of equipment, and the important links in the manufacturing process of welding formal aerospace products. The role of laser welding robots here is extremely important.
