An XY table is an equipment which is widely used in industry for automation application. Examples of its application include Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine, laser welding machine and etc. An XY table is consists of a motion control system which includes software and hardware such as a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). In this project, an XY table is used to position the laser focusing head to automate the welding process for laser spot welding. A program has been developed to control the XY table. The performance of the XY table for linear and circular interpolation was analyzed. A user interface was also developed to read Computer Aided Design (CAD) data file and transform it into XY movement. The accuracy, repeatability and percentage error of the XY table was also measured. The user interface is developed using Visual Basic for manual and automatic positioning. The performance of the XY table was analyzed using graphically benchmarking and motion analysis software.
