    Abstract

    Work to create a new automatic spot welding system is described. With the co-operation of Ford Motor Company, experimental data regarding the parameters of spot welding processes were acquired and used to create a simple knowledge based system. By specifying parameters such as material thickness and type of material to be spot welded, the system was able to set the values of other parameters such as force, welding time and welding current. The knowledge base communicated with a spot welding controller and set the required parameters automatically. A DXF file processor was created to extract data from CAD drawings. The data from the CAD drawings were combined with data from the knowledge base and spot welding positions were calculated. These data regarding the co-ordinate positions of the spot welds were transferred to a robot controller and the movements were simulated.
