Offline teaching

Welding robot offline teaching - developed by igm

Operational availability of the robot installation for production is increased by using an off-line system for generating robot programs. While saving time, programs may be prepared more conveniently in an office environment and simulation test runs (accessibility, computation of cycle time) may be performed. Collisions of the robot with the workpiece or fixtures may be detected at an early stage.

Offline teaching - Online working

Simple robot programming is available through the self developed PC-based off-line teaching system, using the original software of the robot control system and the teach pendant K6.

Offline teaching involves work-piece-oriented programming in 3D mode using a PC and simulation software. The workpiece is first imported into the programming system as 3D-CAD geometry, then the movements of the robot are determined. For path generation and definition of the processing parameters, a number of automatic functions as well as data bases stored in the control system are available.
 
It is a simple system identical to that for programming the robot system on the factory floor, but with a significant advantage: When the teach pendant K6 is employed, an identical software is used for all calculations. This means that conversions of machine parameters or robot programmes of any kind are unnecessary. All programme changes for the system can be processed using the offline system without any conversion losses.
