CENIT at FABTECH 2019 – Booth #B37082
Offline Programming of robotic equipment: Synchronous Motion
At this year’s FABTECH (Booth #B37082) CENIT will present the Synchronous robot team support, one of the newest modules of FASTSUITE Edition 2.
Multi robot coordinated motion opens up a great amount of possibilities for the optimization that can be achieved using industrial robots, like using a 6 axis robot as a positioner and 6 axis robots to perform the process, sharing an external axis in between multiple robots, sharing a single load or tool via an offset TCP or simply to create safe an perfectly timed handshakes in between multiple robots.
The increased complexity of the motion given by the number of axis and timings makes offline programing even more relevant for this type of processes. This tasks require the flexibility to combine different forms of coordination often within the same program, so the OLP software should flexible enough to simulate the complex handshakes and time synchronizations to ensure an accurate simulation.
FASTSUITE Edition 2 enables the efficient and safe programming and simulation of cooperated robot teams, especially of robot cells where multiple robots are working simultaneously on workpieces that are dynamically moved by workpiece positioners. With this new function it is no longer necessary to manually synchronize and optimize the robot operations, and it also enables a realistic work cell setup with only one positioner definition for multiple robots, making previous workarounds obsolete.
Some of the highlights offered by the new FASTSUITE functionalities:
- Support of several work cell types and robot cell configurations
- Up to 16 robots can be included and synchronized
- Independent and individual programming of each robot
- Special synchronization event to define handshakes where the robots will wait until a specific move is achieved by all units
- Special synchronization event to define time start and end of time synchronization zones where the robots will perform identical motion times
- Synchronization command to automatically define the external axes positions onto the programmed tool paths of the robots
- Several cooperation modes are supported
