Industrial Robot Programming

There are three basic methods for industrial robot programming: 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.

In order to program the 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.

Robot Simulation

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, etc.

Whether is simple or complicate task for the robot arm, a good robot integrator understand that robot simulation will assure their customers that the industrial robot will perform the task without inconvenience.

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.

Cell Layout: 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.
