ABB Robotics and Okuma Create a Robot - CNC Interface

Robotics manufacturer ABB and CNC leader Okuma have built an interface to streamline robotic machine tending. This revolutionary product will speed production and operator training.
Robot and CNC machine combinations are common. Robots are often used to load or unload parts from CNC machines. Not only do robot and CNC arrangements reduce cycle times, they also free workers from tedious, repetitious tasks.
Robot and CNC machine arrangements are typically choreographed using separate programming software and two control panels. The ABB/Okuma Interface has changed everything. Now the robot and machine can be operated and observed with one control panel.  
The ABB - Okuma Interface has two features. The graphical interface allows the operator to control the robot's movements, as well as monitor and organize the display of all input and output signals from both. It also keeps track of every event and advises how to fix any problems that arise. The Interface's second feature is an extendable program feature. This allows an operator to create code faster and easier. 

The ABB/Okuma Interface is one of the products to emerge from the THINC Program (THe Intelligent Numerical Control), which provides a forum for different manufacturers to brainstorm and create new products.
