Types of robot arm software programming

Robot arm software programming, CAD CAM software, is helping manufacturing to integrate the robot with a minimum or no errors at all.  But, at the same time, delivering quicker programming and creating simple or complex robot trajectories accurately without teaching points.

Also,  the programming of the robot trajectory is using the same process and tools used for CNC machines, by selecting lines, arcs, part edges or 3D part. Once is selected, parameter boxes guide the user in making the proper selection of process information.

Robot Arm Programming Software –  Simulation Environment

Those software eliminates adjustments and increases program accuracy by calibrating the physical part and tool setup with the virtual CAD model. Furthermore, you can choose from FANUC, ABB, MOTOMAN, KUKA, STAUBLI and more. Additional, the robot software delivers precise tool motion control and quick generation of long tool path trajectories with minimal programmer intervention. See some of the advantages:

Advantages of robot programming

  • Cost-efficiency and flexibility of robots
  • Solving robot programming challenges
  • Programming of robots from CAD/CAM software as easy as CNC machine programming
  • A sure way to beat the competition -worldwide- on cost, flexibility and response time
  • It generates programs off-line and eliminates lost production time during programming
  • Creates simple or complex robot trajectories accurately without teaching points

Robot Software for Kuka

The goal of this robot software KUKA|prc is making industrial robots accessible to the creative industry. This software builds upon the convenient visual programming system Grasshopper, which is a part of the CAD software Rhinoceros 3D.

Advantages of Simulation Program:

  • Reduces downtime, the robot stops when the new program is being downloaded and tested.
  • User can use different approaches and the most convenient to program the robot.
  • The robot can use new features of 3D CAD not available on others methods.

Phoenix provides the simulation of the robot before users invest in the robot system to ensure that the robot reaches the object. We have a good understanding of the software that the market offer for each specific brand manufacture.  Our role as robot integrator is guiding our customers to choose the right robot software.  Contact Us.

Software is the set of coded commands or instructions that tells a Robot what tasks to perform. First of all, every robot manufacturer develops their programming software, but it seems industrial robots have a step back for the lack of collaboration between the manufacturers, fortunate there are enough similarities between the different robots that it is possible to gain a good understanding of robot programming without having to learn software from scratch.

Second, many software intends to make programming robots easier. Hence, you need to learn a new software each time you start using a new robot, some examples of the programming are: Kuka has KRL (Kuka Robot), ABB has RAPID, Fanuc uses Karel, Comau uses PDL2, Yaskawa uses INFORM, Stäubli uses VAL3, and Universal Robots use URScript.

Finally, the lack of standardisation of programming methods for robots does pose specific challenges for the robotic integrator.

System Integrator Role

Phoenix has vast experience in the program a robotic arm, robot simulation and training for industrial robots. We can guide you during the complete process to deliver the best automation solutions for your business. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your project or to arrange a meeting at your premises.

Software Investment

Phoenix works together with the most well-known CAD-CAM programming software providers offering a complete package for our customers due to our vast experience integrating robots globally.

However, it is not always necessary to invest in CAD CAM software mainly to the scale of the production of the product itself. Additional, we offer robot simulation services to ensure if the automation investment is worthless. We know what works best for you, according to the robot application.
