Their biggest challenge and opportunity for automation was the manual, labor-intensive tube rolling process. Because each chiller was a customized product, there was no single standardization to the hole patterns-adding to the complexity of a potential automation process.
Following the no-code/low-code trend, there are various software solutions on the market that enable graphical and therefore simplified and faster programming. The advantage is that no special programming skills are required.
Robotics simulation can be defined as a digital tool used to engineer robotics-based automated production systems. Essentially, robot simulation employs a digital representation to enable dynamic interaction with robot models and machines in a virtual environment.
General Purpose Programming Languages Are the Future for the Industrial Automation Industry and Are Overtaking Traditional PLC IEC 61131-3
IEC 61131-3 is the de facto standard in the industrial automation industry. It encompasses 5 different programming "languages". It makes designing simple programs straightforward and easy, and it does this very well.
Fuzzy Logic Repplix software module allows a robotic system to learn trajectories in a single gesture without any specific training. With the help of a portable learning device, an operator can transfer their professional know-how to the robot by simply executing their task.
One of the strengths of offline programming (OLP) software is that it combines two powerful capabilities: simulation and programming. These two capabilities fit together like two perfect puzzle pieces when it comes to effectively programming robots offline.
The traditional portfolio mix of heavy hardware-orientation with associated software is transitioning to application and non-control software. The move to solutions combining hardware, software, and services is real.
OLRP provides a virtual environment to complete robot programming without taking the robot offline, thereby simplifying complex and time-consuming programming.
The company wanted to robotise certain processes in small series or even single unit production, by allowing an operator with no programming skills to teach the robotic system, in just a few seconds.
In the world of robotics, Offline Programming (OLP) has come a long way in a short time, and the global pandemic has jumpstarted more innovation. Industrial robots have evolved to collaborative robots ("cobots") that work side by side with their human counterparts.
The Future of Robot Programming - Industrial Robot Programming Tool Supports All Phases of Automation
Self-sustainability means, of course, that the working systems between robots and humans can continue to function, and grow, into the future. Indeed, for manufacturers a key signifier of growth is acquiring more machines that also have more capabilities.
Capital investments in advanced manufacturing environments require careful consideration, especially if that investment is for a new process or technology. If you are looking at investing in OLP here are some things to consider about the potential return on investment (ROI).
For any Offline Robot Programming solution to be effective, the virtual robot cell set up in the software must be identical to the existing physical robot cell. OCTOPUZ refers to this process as "implementation".
In service robotics as well as in academia, flexibly designable, use-case specific controllers are used, resulting in the respective robots to mainly act as actuators with low-level control systems but without individual intelligence.
The so-called 'no code' revolution in programming seeks to make the automation industry more autonomous and to democratize the use of robotics at the shop floor level.
