This tutorial demonstrates how to use the function Weld Task Description (WTD). This is an automated weld planning.
The automated weld planning function predicts the optimal welding procedure specification including optimal weld current, weld force, weld time, and hold time, according to user defined Weld Task Description (WTD). This function helps to find the optimal welding conditions in cases where new design has been chosen but haven’t found a welding profile.
You can use the WTD function in several ways which are shown in this tutorial.
Case 1: 3 sheets combination, using default welding condition. This means all welding process parameter are set to zero and the simulation makes a full optimization of the weld force, current, and weld time based on standard settings.
Case 2: 3 Sheets combination, using specified welding parameters. The “Profile” function is used to specify a welding profile to further optimize the process parameters.
Case 3: 3 Sheets combination, using preferred parameters condition. The welding profile from case 1 is used but now the weld force is restricted to the machine’s limit.
