In this paper, a novel approach for an ontological representation of continuous-path manufacturing tasks is presented on the example of robotic fillet welding. The representation specifies manufacturing information and product related geometric constraints relevant for automatic program planning in robotic arc welding. The geometric constraints are transformed into simple continuous curve primitives such as lines, circular arcs and B-spline curves supporting the easy integration in robot program planning systems decoupled from a complex CAD environment. It also represents information on welding gaps along the joint geometry. Moreover, a method for automatic feature recognition based on rule- based pattern recognition is presented to automatically retrieve manufacturing information from the CAD model of the product and generate the respective manufacturing task specification. The method is evaluated in several test scenarios for welding product assemblies indicating the usability and effectiveness for automatic program planning in robotic welding.
