Abstract: This paper concerns with practical designing of few sub circuits of automatic welding system with digital control and is directed to the improvement of certain drive and guide means for a relatively freely carried welding of wheel rim and wheel spider for continuous welding of a part resting on a freely rotatable table. The drive and guide means are carried on the welding head and impart drive to the part while maintaining the welding head properly positioned relative to the part. The system presented is a slightly simplified version of a real automobile wheel-welding system. Although system operation is explained in terms of wheel welding, the design of the system has much in common with other welding operations utilizing the basic industrial automatic welding sequence of Squeeze, Weld, Hold, Release, and Standby with digital control.
