3D Robot Programming Reduces Costs and Streamlines Production
Robotic manufacturing processes, with their clear advantages of speed, cost reduction and accuracy, are being widely adopted for a broad range of production needs. But robot programmers frequently find it challenging to deliver material handling, arc welding, spot welding, painting, or drill and riveting programs that work with certainty on the first run. Because robot programming is not part of the design phase, they are forced to implement fixes and workarounds on the shop floor. Costs escalate as production cycles expand and changes are made without knowledge of the shop floor impacts.
In this whitepaper learn the benefits of moving to Offline Programming including :
- Programmers do not need to wait until the tools are built to create and validate programs.
- Production on the shop floor can move ahead uninterrupted while new programs are being authored and validated
- Programs work safely and predictably.
- Offline programmers are freed from the necessity of making shop floor fixes.
