RobotWorx Partners with In-House Solutions Inc.

Robot integrator RobotWorx and Robotmaster software distributor In-House Solutions Inc. are working together to provide customers with the best solutions to challenging applications.

Industrial robotics company RobotWorx and Robotmaster software distributor In-House Solutions recently established a sales and integration partnership. The two companies will work collaboratively, with RobotWorx building and supporting robotic workcells, and In-House Solutions programming and supporting the Robotmaster software.

Robotmaster is a software package for programming 6-axis industrial robots designed to give users a unique, CAD/CAM-integrated solution for specific applications such as robotic milling, machining, and spray coating.
"We had received a number of leads regarding offline programming for complex geometries and needed a solution," said RobotWorx President Jarrod Bichon. "We were already aware of Robotmaster's stellar track record. Now, we have the opportunity to become more educated about the ins and outs of the product and broaden our offering to customers."
"The Robotmaster Team at In-House Solutions is extremely excited about the partnership between our two companies," said In-House Solutions Sales Manager Greg Culp. "RobotWorx is one of the premier robot integrators and has an outstanding reputation in the robot industry. Our companies complement each other very well and the opportunities for success are endless."
The Robotmaster software package is compatible with KUKA, Motoman, FANUC, and other major robot brands. This makes the product even more useful for RobotWorx, an authorized integrator and reseller for all three.
RobotWorx has established a Robotmaster demo cell featuring a KUKA KR60 HA robot in its Marion, Ohio integration facility. Here, RobotWorx staff and interested customers can see exactly how the off-line programming system works and the level of precision Robotmaster is capable of providing.
"Since we had a large Kuka robot at our disposal, it was easy to make this a dedicated unit for the RobotMaster software,\" said Bichon. \"We\'re very pleased with the software package. Robotmaster has effectively expanded RobotWorx' integration capabilities, especially when it comes to milling.\"

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
