Course Duration

The duration is 5 days. Frequency of course offering 4 times per year

Course Description

A 5-day training program covering advanced tasks and procedures that an operator, technician, engineer or programmer needs to maximize productivity and quality with a Lincoln /Fanuc-RJ-Series Robotic Welding System. Class size is limited to 12 participants.

Course Prerequisites

The person attending must have completed the Lincoln Automation Basic Robotic Programming Course.

Course Objectives

  • Edit programs while another is running.
  • Make temporary adjustments to weld points to compensate for batch runs.
  • Make On-The-Fly changes to weld procedures.
  • Copy / Shift programs to new locations to reduce programming time.
  • Add explanatory text to programs including Custom alarm messages.
  • Full controller memory backup and restore.
  • Use tool offset utility to minimize programming when changing to new style of torch.
  • Use Find, Replace, Copy and Paste commands.
  • Setup the Reference Position Utility to establish a safe position for the robot.
  • Change weld procedures in the middle of weld.
  • Monitor weld command and feedback signals.
  • Use Test Cycle to speed up the programming testing process.
