New ABB RobotStudio App in the Okuma App Store Maximizes CNC Machining Production and Profitability

ABB’s simulation and offline programming software allows robot programming to be performed without disrupting production.

Charlotte, NC July 17, 2015


ABB's new RobotStudio app in the Okuma App Store incorporates the IRC5 robot controller software increasing profitability by allowing users to schedule robot tasks such as training, programming and optimization offline without causing any downtime in production. Okuma‘s App Store is the industry's first and only centralized, online marketplace for CNC machine tool apps and related content.

RobotStudio is built on the ABB Virtual Controller which is an exact copy of the software that runs robots in production. This allows simulations to be performed offline, using programs and configurations identical to those used on a shop floor, maximizing efficiency and part production.

Benefits of uninterrupted production include:

* Risk Reduction
* Quicker Start-Up
* Shorter Change-over
* Increased Productivity

RobotStudio Machine Tending PowerPac (MTPP) is an add-on and included with the app. This platform provides quick and easy creation and editing of robot machine tending.

MTPP defines and configures:

* parts and grippers
* stations and robot movements
* HomeRun strategy
* simulation, validation and optimal cycles

Okuma Apps put the power of improving part quality, reducing costs and increasing profitability in your hands. Okuma's open architecture control and Windows are fully integrated allowing for true customization to suit particular machining needs.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
