Crown - Efficient offline Programming for Arc Welding
Challenge
  • The addition of more robots to production requires the addition of more experienced programming personnel
  • Lost production time
Solution
  • Replacement of the time-consuming manual teaching of the robot systems with simulation-based offline programming for tool path generation
Benefits
  • The programming takes place in the simulation environment of FASTSUITE Edition 2 (offline, i. e. parallel to the productive operation of the system) and as a result the downtimes of the system have been significantly reduced
  • The production interruptions for setting up and teaching new components has been reduced to a minimum
  • The welding quality of the solid steel parts is consistently very good
Why CENIT
  • The close cooperation of the FASTSUITE developers with leading robot manufacturers
  • The software has a controller add-on for the welding cell from Reis and enables a very precise simulation and optimization of the system on the PC
  • The practical experience of CENIT's employees in the offline programming of a wide variety of systems helped to read in the robot program on the welding cell and run it safely
