ROBOGUIDE, a robot simulator program developed by FANUC, houses a host of options for software products. The simulation occurs by using a virtual robot. Both the robot’s movement and application commands are simulated with this program. FANUC ensures a highly accurate simulation process when enlisting the help of ROBOGUIDE.
The standard software’s modeling function was developed with the aim to reduce time for modeling devices. CAD data can be imported to create the parts by the modeling function. A large library allows the user to select and modify the parts and dimensions necessary. ROBOGUIDE’s program function allows the user to create the actual program via the same user interface as the Robot Teach Pendant. The layout function can be changed either by numerical input or by mouse on a graphic screen.
Some notable features of ROBOGUIDE are the simple creation of layout for devices; even an inexperienced user should find the process easy. The program creation uses an animation tool that allows for a quick and inexpensive verification of the robot application systems. Start-up and maintenance times are both greatly reduced due to offline checking.
ROBOGUIDE incorporates many application-specific tools into its software options. With HandlingPRO software, there is no need for a prototype work cell setup. This software allows users to simulate a robotic process or study feasibility options for applications in a 3D space. PaintPRO is a graphical offline programming tool for path teach and paint process development. PalletPRO simulation software enables a user to completely build, debug, and test a palletizing or depalletizing application offline. With WeldPRO, users can simulate the robotic arc welding process in a 3D space. SpotPRO does the same for spot welding.
From the design to the confirmation process, ROBOGUIDE makes it easy and cost-effective to use offline programming for robot simulation. RobotWorx offers many different types of robotic software systems. If you would like to find out which one is best for your robot, contact us today at 740-251-4312.
