RobotWorks Offline Robot Programming    ROBOTWORKS V7 NOW AVAILABLE

RobotWorks NEWS...

RobotWorks Version 7 Released!

 

RobotWorks Version 7 supports Windows7 32/64 systems, with improved power & features.

 

Way cool RobotWorks Application...

We recently helped a customer create robot paths used to deposit circuit lines (like a printed circuit board) on a composite panel about 800mm X 1800mm.  Awesome Application!

What Does RobotWorks Do?

  • Combines with SolidWorks to create 6-DOF robot point data.  WHY IS ROBOTWORKS BETTER?  You have the explicit power of a CAD package to develop any features required to create the robot path you need for challenging applications.  RobSim, RobotStudio, RobCAD, Delmia, FAMOS....NONE of them can do this like RobotWorks, for the price.
  • True CAD-To-Path operation.  Uses CAD features like edges, faces, sketches, projected curves to create robot location arrays and motion commands.
  • Powerful Patterning Tools.   Intricate robot tool path patterns, such as polishing / thermal spraying / waterjet de-cladding, are simple to create with RobotWorks Patterning Tools.  A few mouse clicks is all it takes to create challenging and accurate path patterns.
  • Simulate robot arm and tool motion.  Maintains joint limits and configurations.
  • Full [ X, Y, Z, RX, RY, RZ ] robot point control.  A suite of built-in functions to modify Position, Orientation, Pitch (spacing), and Process Events for the MOST DEMANDING APPLICATIONS.
  • REACH STUDIES and COLLISION DETECTION on robotic workcells.
  • Output Robot Point Data in your robot's native file format for immediate execution.
  • Optional External Axes Support. Easily create robot path files with integrated Tilt-Turn positioners or Linear Axes.

Why Use Offline Programming?

  • IT SAVES TIME.  IT SAVES MONEY.  THE PROOF IS THERE.
  • Quickly, easily create robot path points using CAD.
  • Work offline, at your desk.
  • Don't interrupt production for robot programming tasks....keep your capital assets working to make money for your company.
  • Create more accurate robot orientations and locations.
  • Experiment with "What If" scenarios before commitments are made.
  • Minimize programmer overtime charges.

What Can RobotWorks Do For Me?

  • Easily create robot path points for complex robot jobs
    • Robotic Deburring, Polishing, Buffing, Dispensing, Cutting, Laser Operations
    • Turbine Repair operations (grinding, THERMAL SPRAY, weld build-up, and polishing)
    • Painting and Coating Jobs
    • Welding (including External Tilt-Turn Workpiece Positioners...Linear Axis Positioners coming in Version 6)
  • Increase your company's profit margin through reduced programming costs (overtime, inaccuracies, interrupted production) by having the modern programming tools required to easily create complex robotic path applications.
  • Increase machine uptime by programming OFFLINE at your desk
  • Select & Verify the correct robot model for the job BEFORE committing to a critical project

  • What is the Payback for RobotWorks?

    There are generally two Payback Models for RobotWorks:

    • Production Shop
      • Where robot teaching for new jobs and prototypes would interrupt valuable production time
      • Programming jobs require excessive overtime (don't tell your Robot Programmer about RobotWorks!)
      • Teaching intricate or precise paths with a teach pendant is too difficult.
    • System Integrator or Research
      • Determine in Concept Phase which robot best fits the application.
        • GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!
      • Built-In functionality allow the user to easily create screenshots and movies for your marketing needs to your customers.
        • If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then a movie is worth 10,000 words.
      • Quickly perform reach and collision detection studies.

Really, Really Cool Features:

The RobotWorksk package has some amazing capabilities to EASILY CREATE SOPHISTICATED ROBOT PATH POINTS

 

  • CarriedPartPic1   CARRIED PART MOTION.  When you need the robot to carry your workpiece to a stationary tool (e.g., grinding, deburring, polishing)

 

  • Step & Repeat Dialog Box  STEP-AND-REPEAT PATTERN.  Perfect for easily creating weld build-up paths.

 

  • ExternalAxisPic1  EXTERNAL AXIS SUPPORT OPTION.  Thermal Sprayers and Robotic Welders love this for tilt-turn workpiece positioners.

 DEMO MOVIE #3: Turbine Blade on 2-Axis Positioner...Positioner Disabled

 DEMO MOVIE #4: Turbine Blade on 2-Axis Positioner...Positioner Enabled

 

  • LINEAR AXIS SUPPORT OPTION.  Now available with RobotWorks Version 6.

 

  • Picture of Funnel Points Tool  FUNNEL POINTS.  Now available with RobotWorks Version 6.  Thermal Sprayers are gonna LOVE this function.  Easily modify and control EOAT orientation for spray path points. 
  • What's The Application?  Now it is simple to control cables, hoses, and arm dress packages during complicated arm motion with minimum wrist gyrations.
