Overview

Essential Job Functions

The Robot Operator / Tacker / Welder uses robotic welding cells, MIG / TIG welding, and common metal working hand tools to completely sub-assemble (tack) and weld fuel tanks and related components from formed sheet metal parts, tubing, and fittings. The finished part will be ready for final testing and washing in preparation for powder coating.

Job Activities

The Robot Operator is responsible for the following components of Welding Robot Operation:

  • Load and unload robot fixturing with previously tacked product, typically fuel tanks and related parts of aluminum coated steel sheet metals of 14 ga. -12 ga. but may include stainless steel and aluminum materials.
  • Use MIG or TIG welding processes to attach fittings and specified by documentation and mechanical drawings.
  • Inspect robot-welded product and utilize TIG and MIG processes to repair any cosmetic or functional flaws.
  • Use stud-welding equipment to weld studs and test stud weld integrity
  • Pressure test, repair any leaks with MIG or TIG processes, and remove weld spatter as dictated by quality requirements
  • Clean and change tips, nozzles, weld wire.
  • Re-start robot welder after minor problems such as stuck wire, safety barrier violation, etc.
  • Monitor robot welder for process problems including, but not limited to lack of/incorrect gas, wire feed problems, and weld path issues.
  • Communicate and cooperate with Robot Programmer to move weld path when indicated by welding robot results.

Tacker

  • Responsible for assembling the various sheet and structural components that collectively make a fuel tank utilizing MIG short circuit mode welding processes.
  • Verify that the tank corresponds to the mechanical drawing and weld all internal structures.
  • Will place enough tack welds to assure that the tank seams will not widen during the welding process.
  • Repeatedly tack product in the same manner producing product of repeatable final physical dimensions. Material types are predominately aluminum coated steel sheet metals of 14 ga. -12 ga. but may include stainless steel and aluminum materials.

Welder

The Welder is responsible for manually welding previously tacked steel fuel tanks utilizing MIG short circuit and pulsed spray transfer mode welding processes. Material types are predominately aluminum coated steel sheet metals of 14 ga. -12 ga. but may include stainless steel and aluminum materials.

The Welder must be able to:

  • Read and interpret mechanical drawings; perform first article quality control check
  • Set up, adjust, and maintain appropriate welding parameters on an assigned welding machine
