I am Aristidis from Greece.
Below I adjust TIG welding to AR2 and I made test how to weld inox tube AISI 304 outside diameter 12.0mm thickness 1.5mm with end cap 9mm.
It is accurate enough for production. The only problem is the backlash error. So I couldn't use circle command. When I try it it made an ellipse not a circle.
Thank you for watching.
Aristidis are you planning to try mig/mag as well? i am planning to design a special welding gun for AR3 that has low enough weight. Did you have any problems with the weight loaded to J6?
Thank you for the information, that is very interesting. I also wonder if the number of waypoints being executed plays into the error. For example the AR2 software default is 100 waypoints per circle but with a circle this small I wonder if trying to calculate 100 positions causes zero steps for certain joints at many points along the circle. I wonder what the circle would look like if you changed line 945 in the source code "numWayPts = 100" from 100 to 16.
That looks awesome. Thank you for sharing that. could you tell me more about the circle command, how did you make the circle weld? I would like to understand the backlash error you reference.
