Abstract:

A technological process has been developed for making joints by a combination of resistance spot welding and cementing of metal structural elements. The addition of special structural glue to the joint increases the strength characteristics and provides anticorrosion protection. The author describes the universal VUS-1 welding manipulator designed for mechanization of the spot welding process on large structures with compound curvature. An eight-channel programmed control unit for this manipulator is also described. Closed-circuit TV may be used for remote control. The operation of the BPU-1 programmed regulator for automatically welding elements of varying thickness is discussed. Mechanization of the electrode cleaning process is considered and it is pointed out that the GZP dressing unit based on the UD-2M angle drill may be used for solving this problem. Finally, an automatic machine for applying the cement to the welded joint capillary method is described. Author
