Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR JOINING WORKPIECES HAVING AT LEAST TWO TRANSPORT DEVICES WHICH CAN BE CONTROLLED INDEPENDENTLY OF EACH OTHER TO CONFIGURE AN OFFSET BETWEEN HEAD ENDS AND/OR REAR ENDS OF THE WORKPIECES PRIOR TO JOINING
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for controlling a cyclically operating joining device (1), in particular a welding station, for joining a plurality of workpieces (2) to a circuit board (3), wherein the joining device (1) comprises at least one first transport device for a first workpiece (2) in a first transport segment, and a second transport device for a second workpiece in a second transport segment (7), and the transport devices are controlled, independently of each other, by at least one control variable to configure an offset between head ends and/or rear ends of the workpieces (2) prior to joining, wherein the control variable is associated with at least one transport segment (7) of one of the transport devices.
