Equipment Description

The equipment comprises various components, including an ABB six-axis robot, a location shifter, an industrial computer, an electric cabinet, a cleaning gun system, a welding system, and a light curtain.


The quality and appearance of centrifugal fans heavily rely on the welding of the impeller. Traditional automated welding equipment, initially reliant on manual welding, falls short in achieving real-time welding seam tracking and automation.

However, the centrifugal fan industry has undergone a revolutionary transformation with the introduction of laser vision-guided automatic welding equipment for impellers. This innovative system enables automation and unmanned operations while significantly improving welding quality and efficiency. Moreover, it reduces the reliance on welding personnel and eliminates the need for manual grinding, addressing the drawbacks of the conventional centrifugal fan production process, such as low quality, labor-intensive nature, and limitations in large-scale production.

Equipment Composition and Principle

The automatic welding apparatus for impellers consists of several key components, including the ABB welding robot system, a two-axis transducer, a laser vision guiding system, a welding system, a gun clearing system, and a safety protection system. The laser vision system controls the welding trajectory by accurately guiding each weld seam using 3D coordinates and welding posture information. It continuously adjusts the welding trajectory to compensate for any spot welding deviations on the blades.

This equipment brings together the human-machine synergy, overcoming the issues associated with previous robot training methods and quickly identifying the weld seam for an optimal welding perspective. Real-time adjustments to the welding offset are made, ensuring the best welding results for subsequent weld seams.

The laser guiding system utilizes the triangle ranging technique to measure the distance and height of product sampling locations. This information aids in achieving precise positioning and welding during the manufacturing process.
