New Welding Fixture for Robotic Welding Education Training Systems

Press release date: July 24, 2014

Lincoln Electric introduces a fixture that supports three positions and joints

Cleveland – Lincoln Electric has developed a new welding fixture designed for use on robotic welding education training systems to enhance robotic programming and welding lessons. The new, patent-pending 3-in-1 welding fixture is flexible and compact, enabling the welding instructor to teach common and industry-supported joints and positions in welding, all in one simple device.

The 3-in-1 adjustable welding fixture (K4110-1) supports 1 mm to 3 mm material in the following positions and joints:
2F Horizontal Fillet
1F Flat Lap
2F 3° Clock Lap

Designed from durable 6061 T6 aluminum, the rugged, industrial fixture includes all metal parts on the tooling. This design minimizes maintenance by preventing weld spatter from sticking. The manual fixture offers welding instructors a low-cost manual clamping system that can be applied to a fixed or stationary table. The flexible fixture can weld from 2-inch to 8-inch plates. Ideally suited for implementation in systems for robotic welding education and training, the fixture is easily adjustable and provides an ideal option for locating parts and teaching repeatable programming and welding skills.

The new robotic welding fixture is complemented by Lincoln Electric’s Robotic Project Based Lessons (K3876-1). The 13 lessons identify objectives and material used and feature step-by-step instructions. They also include discussion questions to challenge the students.  For an educator or instructor, these robotic project-based lessons offer a lesson plan that can be picked up and used in curriculum today.
