Industrial robots are a great tool for welding automation: they are fast, repeatable, and flexible but conventional programming is costly and time consuming. Our software utilises planning algorithms to create ready to run weld programs for your robot directly from CAD. If you are a job shop with small part volumes, or producing complex parts, our software will enable you to unlock the benefits of robotic welding automation with reduced programming costs in a fraction of the time.
Import your 3D workpiece model from a common file format (STEP). Our software can automatically identify weld paths directly from the imported geometry, or you can define welds using the inbuilt editor or from a spreadsheet. You can then view and re-order welds, as well as set the welding parameters to use.
Our software generates the robot motions using the inbuilt planning algorithms. No human input is required and the software automatically avoids collision, reachability limits and singularities. Weld paths and workpiece positions are optimised to produce a high quality result. The software can even plan welds in narrow and challenging areas.
The robot motions are translated to a program ready to run directly on the robot. Information is added to the program, such as weld settings, so no additional programming is required. Touch or laser sensing is included into the programming to account for workpiece inaccuracies. You can also simulate the generated motions inside our software for verification, and adjust the parameters and re-plan if required.
