The paper presents the principle of following the welding path with the help of arc sensors. Both theoretical considerations and industrial applications are presented. A mathematic model of an arc sensing system is also shown. The minimum and maximum outline shapes that can be followed with path sensors have been established by trials. This is important for its design and further development.
