Robotic welding is commonly viewed as one of the most effective ways to reduce costs and increase competitiveness in welding production. However, several requirements need to be taken into account when exploiting welding robotics. The main issues to be considered are the construction of the item to be welded, for example, the joint types, and accessibility to weld sub-assemblies such as stiffeners and cross supports. Furthermore, the type of base material places some restrictions upon the sensing technology applied. This work studied the robotic welding of an aluminum boat. Several sensor technologies were examined and welding experiments undertaken to clarify their potential. Redesign of sub-assemblies of the aluminum boat through modularization and selection of suitable welding processes for aluminum welding are found to provide the optimal solution for the adoption of sensor guided robotic welding
