All about robotics – ArtiMinds RPS & LAR
With the software ArtiMinds Robot Programming Suite (RPS), robust and flexible robot applications can be implemented that were previously impossible! The continuous software solution greatly simplifies the use of robots and makes cost-effective automation possible. You only need one tool for all phases, from planning to programming and operation up to maintenance of your industrial robots. This means that even complex robot programs including force control, image processing and PLC communication can be implemented with just one software. With ArtiMinds RPS, you can create advanced robot applications in just a few steps and integrate them immediately in your production processes.
The unique features of the award-winning ArtiMinds RPS include:
No vendor-specific programming skills are required
The programming of robot applications and processes is done via drag & drop. The native robot code is generated automatically by the programming software. This makes experts with specific manufacturer-dependent programming skills obsolete.
Range of hardware, that is supported by ArtiMinds RPS
Connecting industrial robots or peripheral hardware has never been easier. ArtiMinds supports the hardware of all well-known manufacturers. The corresponding drivers and protocols are already integrated and can be used for your robot application without additional effort and special know-how. This makes it easy to implement your individual preferred hardware setup.
No separate hardware controller needed
ArtiMinds RPS and LAR run directly on the manufacturer’s standard robot controller, and you do not need any additional hardware.
Planning – Programming – Simulation – Operation without additional software
ArtiMinds RPS is a continuous software solution for online and offline programming that enables seamless planning, programming and implementation of all robot-based automation processes. Additional tools and in-depth programming skills or programming by script are completely eliminated.
Commissioning/Operation – Analysis – Optimization with ArtiMinds LAR
Get detailed insights into your robot-based operations with ArtiMinds LAR. The software provides you with automatically plotted and prepared live sensor data. The analysis and optimization of your robot processes is not only of advantage during operation. Even during commissioning, it is worthwhile evaluating individual sub-processes in order to achieve faster implementation and optimal parameterization.
ArtiMinds Robot Programming Suite enables the use of flexible and advanced automation solutions. The software products ArtiMinds RPS & LAR generate significant savings potential and competitive advantages, i.a. through cost-efficient integration and maintenance.
ArtiMinds RPS offers a unique programming approach to simplify planning, setup and programming your robot application. At the heart of Artiminds RPS is a large template database to solve challenging robot tasks like force control, vision sensing and PLC communication – without writing a single line of robot program code. Choose from different programming techniques like Wizards or CAD to set up each template. At all times, you can switch seamlessly between offline programming with CAD and online programming with the real robot, which requires only a network connection. Based on the templates, ArtiMinds RPS will automatically generate robot code for the standard controller of the robot manufacturer. No additional hardware is required during production and a broad set of robots and standard hardware components is supported – allowing a lean entry into flexible automation.
ArtiMinds LAR assists you in operating, analyzing and optimizing the robot application during production. Building on top of ArtiMinds RPS, live sensor data of the robot will be captured automatically with high frequency. ArtiMinds LAR will split the sensor data precisely into segments for each template and analyze it based on the template type. All runs will be stored in an in-house database along with ArtiMinds RPS project revisions for later inspection. Based on novel source of information, ArtiMinds LAR enables you to inspect your production processes with unmatched details, optimize the production to increase throughput and monitor the execution of the robot.
There for you – Consulting & Services
Many small steps lead from the first idea to the finished flexible automation solution. In this process, expert advice is of great importance for your investment decision and the project progression. ArtiMinds is a leader in the development of robot-based applications. This is evident i.a. during concept consulting for customer-specific solutions provided by the experts from our Automation Engineering Team. During an expert and intensive consultation, we determine your needs and discuss possible solutions.
Depending on the complexity of the process sequences, we execute a feasibility study to examine the feasibility of your application and determine the next steps. Our experts master even the most demanding technical challenges, even if the market does not yet offer a corresponding robot-based solution. After programming and implementing your prototype, however, the project is not yet finished. The last step is a detailed project presentation and evaluation of the results as well as handover of all data and information to you. The final step consists of a two-day training course of your employees. This knowledge transfer is an important step for you into a new production era, represented by your individual and optimal flexible automation solution. Of course, our support does not stop at this point and, if required, we will also accompany you through all further steps.
Continuous development – Supported hardware
ArtiMinds simplifies the programming and operation of industrial robots and enables cost-efficient integration and maintenance. We create flexible automation solutions, for which you can use your preferred hardware. ArtiMinds acts vendor-independent and supports the standard hardware of all well-known manufacturers. We have also integrated the corresponding drivers and protocols for connecting industrial robots and peripheral devices into ArtiMinds RPS. Our software also generates fully automatically native script code. At this point, the savings potential is immense:
- You do not need a programmer specialized in the respective programming language or manufacturer software.
- Commonly, multiple tools are used for programming, simulation, controlling, etc. With ArtiMinds RPS this is no longer necessary.
- The time for commissioning is significantly reduced thanks to the seamless combination of online and offline programming.
- The ArtiMinds training imparts the knowledge and shows you the tools to implement applications independently.
- Even advanced and demanding solutions are implemented much faster and more robustly, which can give you a significant competitive edge.
- ArtiMinds RPS & LAR do not require additional hardware or controllers.
