Welding Sequence Optimizer

The first AI powered optimization plugin for welding simulation

Asset 1_3x.png

Welding Sequence Optimizer (WSO) is a software offering a digital toolset of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms that will help you to minimize the inherent welding deformation. It works in two ways, 1) as standalone without a need of running a CAE project, 2) acting as plugin for commercial welding simulation software's.

A general definition of the best sequence is a proper order of placement and welding direction for each bead that minimizes an objective function.

Setting up WSO is simple, just load your welding simulation project, and it takes less than 10 minutes to start running.

 

WSO runs without human interaction. There are different algorithms each of them suitable for a particular stage of the Product Delivery Process (PDP).

Objective functions:

  • Total deformation

  • Single Axis displacement (x | y | z)

  • Desired region (Particles)

  • Effective Stress

CMM can be emulated by probing points on the deformed CAE model.

Our integration of Kotem Smart Profile. enables the evaluation of the bluprint GD&T characteristics. 

While running a Sequence Optiization you can also select a key characteristic as objective function instead of total deformation.

For multirobot operations, WSO can integrate knowledge computed by RoboDK using a virtual manufacturing cell.

Objective function will consider:

  • Collision free - sequence

  • Cycle time

  • Best robot assignment
