Abstract

Most of the business of Koltanbar Engineering is designing large automated welding lines producing body assemblies. In the past, designing a welding station for one of these lines was an extremely time‐consuming process requiring complicated sectional drawings at each welding point, which were stacked up to determine the gun configuration; intricate stick drawings of the robot's motion, and very tricky cycle time studies.
