Machining on industrial robots

The SprutCAM system allow to program industrial robots for cutting, milling painting and other purposes. For the programming the tool movement along a contour or a surface is use the same operations than for the milling machines. But each operation have a several additional parameters for the robot configuration management and "additional" degrees of freedom (DOF).

In difference from machines robot can reach a several state for the positioning axis on the same position. Selection of specific state which will be use in the current operation is make by the checkboxes <flip base>, <flip elbow>, <flip wrist>



In the current chapter is described the next robots programming features:

Robot scheme selecting, tool and workpiece coordinate system setup;

Robot 6th axis management;

Rails management;

Tilting rotary table management;

Bypass inaccessible positions and singularities;

Stepover building.
