To improve the robot’s welding quality, control welding precision, optimize welding parameters, realize continuous welding quality database optimization, and increase welding defect detection, a fuzzy neural network-based intelligent decision-making system must be built. This study demonstrates how fuzzy control theory and BP neural networks may be used to identify welding issues and enhance process variables. The experimental findings indicate that, with seam classification accuracy close to 90%, enhancing welding parameters and performance is feasible and achievable. Neural networks, fuzzy controls, and expert systems are all used to describe welding process control. Utilizing intelligent welding controllers. Systems with intelligence can identify surface, volume, and linear welding faults. morphological (pits, undercuts, welds, surface cracks), volumetric (voids), or linear (such as slag, partial penetration, unfused, and fractures). Destructive testing benefits from data storage and visibility. Design and demand changes complicate production decisions. AI approaches like neural networks make online decisions. This article uses neural networks to predict SAW weld quality (SAW). Taguchi’s principles are applied in experiments and equations. The use of experimental data and regression analysis in the development of neural network models. Considering the relative speeds and precisions of the models. NNPSO performs better than BPNN, RBFNN, and GA combined (NNGA). The created weld quality prediction technique contains online monitoring, and it is customizable, competent, and accurate. Additionally, the scheme is competent. Models are tested. The strategy that has been presented and developed will assist people in protecting themselves from robot risks.
