A magnetic climbing robot to perform autonomous welding in the shipbuilding industry
In this paper, mechanical and control design of a magnetic tracked mobile robot is presented. The robot is designed to move on vertical steel ship hulls and to be able to carry 100 kg payload, including its own weight. The mechanical components are presented and the sizing of the magnetic tracks is detailed. All computation is embedded in order to reduce time delays between processes and to keep the robot functional even in case of signal loss with the ground station. The main sensor of the robot is a 2D laser scanner, that gives information on the hull surface and is used for several tasks. We focus on the welding task and expose the control algorithm that allows the robot to follow a straight line for the welding process.

Robotic Pipe welding
Pipe welding uses heat to join multiple sections of pipes together in order to create a single piece of metal. It requires finesse and flexibility as it deals with different pipe dimensions, materials, and fittings that all call for different welding applications, torch angles, etc. Automated pipe welding provides a reliable, flexible, and consistent solution while also offering higher deposition welds and greater fusion. A 6-axis robotic arm is capable of quick, efficient torch positioning. It produces exceptional and consistent weld quality as the EOAT gives extraordinary control over a task that can be grueling for manual welders. In addition, there is never variation in quality that can sometimes occur with manual welding, the results are always consistent and repeatable. This results in fewer do-overs which equates to less wasted product material and better throughput
