The best way to maximize return on investment for robot studios is offline programming. ABB’s RobotStudio, simulation and offline programming software, allows robot programming to be done without shutting down production. A PC in the office is used for the programming while manufacturing continues on schedule.
RobotStudio enables the operator to perform training, programming, and optimization without disturbing production. Risk reduction, quick start-up, short change-over, and increased productivity are all resulting benefits.
RobotStudio is built on the ABB VirtualController, an exact copy of the actual software that runs the robots in production, allowing realistic simulations.
RobotStudio 5.15 comes with a RAPID editor. All ABB robots are programmed using the RAPID language. The RAPID editor provides a development environment similar to Microsoft Visual Studio and gives suggestions and support as the operator writes the robot program. Default arguments can be filled in automatically and instantaneous feedback is provided on the correctness of the code.
The RobotStudio Basic Functionality mode can be downloaded and used for free. The Premium Functionality mode must be purchased, but can be tried for thirty days free of charge.
The ABB RobotStudio website provides resources for new users like blogs, a YouTube channel and Facebook page, and a forum for sharing content and ideas.
