Automatic Online Programming

Generate robot programs within seconds - up to 1000 times faster than traditionally. Automate extreme variant processes and tasks not thinkable otherwise: touch-up and spot-repair of defects detected seconds before, vision-based deburring and shape-correction, lot-size 1 products, etc.

ADVANTAGES:

Automating lot-size 1:

  • Programs each job individually
  • Without need for user involvement

 
Cost efficient Line-Tracking

  • No additional hardware required
  • Automatic consideration of work-piece motion

 
Reduction of cycle-time

  • Coordination of robots in the same workspace
  • Automatic optimization

Minimal reaction time, real-time capable:

  • Fully automated programming
  • Up to 1000 times faster than manually
  • Planning time can be set on the fly
  • Parallelizable

 
Compensates large pose-deviations

  • Adaptation through fast on-line planning
  • Collision free even with different configurations
