In the past, companies have used 5-axis laser cutting machines to perform all of their laser cutting applications. With the help of ABB Robotics, and their laser cutting software, manufacturers now have the option of purchasing a laser cutting robot that takes up much less space and can perform the laser cutting process in a fraction of the time.
Laser cutting used to be a pain for manufacturers that had limited floor space. The machines took up a lot of area, and there wasn’t much flexibility in the layout. Then, ABB Robotics developed laser cutting robotics and the software to optimize them. These robots can save space on the production floor, and with the help of the ABB laser cutting software, they are extremely cost effective as well.
The first bit of laser cutting software is the RobotStudio PowerPac, an offline package that allows users to generate and modify programmed paths in a 3-D simulation environment, before the system ever gets the factory floor, according to ABB. This allows the manufacturer to plan the system before it is integrated into the existing space. Companies can also invest in RobotWare Cutting software, which is an advanced controller software for laser cutting robots from ABB. With this software, you can optimize your ABB laser cutting robotic system, generating complex paths and shapes for your cutting application.
