There are three basic methods for programming robots, these methods are using the teach pendant, simulation/offline programming and teaching by Demonstration but according to the British Automation and Robot Association (BARA) currently over 90% are programmed using the Teach Pendant method.
For instance for programming a robot, the operator moves arm of the robot from point-to-point, using the controls buttons on the teach pendant to move in a number of different coordinate systems positions, then save each position individually, and finally the robot can play back the points at the full speed.
Industrial Automation require programming skills in several operational process, for example: control system programming and learn how to program a robot. Our engineers have the skills and ability to help users to learn about programming.
Robot Simulation Software
Most of the Robot programming CAD-CAM software integrates robot programming simulation. The robot software create simple or complex robot trajectories accurately without teaching points. The virtual CAD model helps programmer increase accuracy, you can choose any robot manufacture such as Kuka, ABB, Fanuc, Staubli, Motoman and others.
Whether is simple or complex task for the industrial robot arm, a good robot integrator understand that programming robots ensure customers that the industrial robot performs the task without inconvenience.
Phoenix provides programming robots for any robot application, so that the production line run as efficient as posible.
Key elements in Robot Automation
When program a robot, an integrator, should consider a numbers of important factors that will determine the final cost of the robot systems. Hence, some of these components are:
Number of Robots: Manufacturers employ additional robots in a cell in order to increase production
Types of Robots: A single-gripper robot can hold only one part at a time.
Robot Cell : The layout refers to the arrangement of machines within the cell. Most robotic cell models assume one of two layouts: linear or circular.
Number of Part-Types: A cell producing identical parts is referred to as a single-part-type cell. In contrast, a multiple-part-type cell processes lots that contain different types of parts. However, all part types require different processing times.
Processing Times: Since each of the stages performs a different function, each of them have different processing time.
Loading and Unloading Times: The time required for loading and unloading is another factor that influences the processing.
Furthermore, remember that the robot software and robot simulation play a key role on the robot application.
Phoenix integrates and installs complete industrial robots cell design whether is a new robotic integration or reconditioned robots. We offer solutions for all kind of robotic applications such as Robotic Milling, Cutting, Painting, Welding, Robotic Material Handling, Palletising, Assembly line robots and more.
We also Design, Manufacture and Install control panels from simple panel building through to full custom integrated and tested systems.
