Technology is constantly moving and changing – it never stands still for very long. That being said, robotic software and technology is also constantly changing. One robotics company has come up with a new software platform that will be very helpful in future applications.
According to an article from RobotXworld, Staubli Robotics has developed a 2013 software suite that will include two platforms, a Development Studio and a Maintenance Studio. These programs will be directly linked to the robot and controller.
The Development Studio is a place for manufacturers to develop robotics applications, as well as the development of 3D simulations. The article stated that this platform includes a file transfer between the computer used for development and the robot’s controller, the backups, the 3D robotic arm scenes, along with other programs.
The Maintenance Studio is designed for just that – maintenance. The program gives maintenance personnel the ability to perform diagnostics on the system. The article stated that this software offers full remote access to the controller, as well as giving 3D visualization of the robot system.
This software was designed by Staubli because of the increasing needs of manufacturing companies to develop new solutions and new applications for their ever-changing product lines.
RobotWorx, a certified integrator for several different robotics companies, offers many software options for their industrial robot models. New software can keep even robots that are a few years old relevant to the modern technologies and changes in manufacturing application needs.
As an integrator, RobotWorx helps customers to customize a robotic system or workcell that is specific to their application and facility. Not only will we help you find the right robot, controller, end effector and safety package, but we’ll also find you the perfect software to make the programmer’s interface user-friendly and easy to learn.
