Effi­cient pro­gram­ming and teach­ing of DENSO robots

ArtiMinds – Alter­na­tive solu­tion to DENSO´s pro­gram­ming soft­ware WIN­CAPS III and pro­gram­ming in PacScript

The stan­dard pro­gram­ming lan­guage to pro­gramm DENSO robots is Pac­Script. Older robot mod­els are pro­grammed in PAC. DENSO also offers the offline pro­gram­ming soft­ware WIN­CAPS III, which can be used to cre­ate robot pro­grams and sim­u­late them on a PC.
ArtiMinds RPS soft­ware offers an intu­itive pro­gram­ming approach that seam­lessly com­bines online and offline pro­gram­ming, sup­ports all com­mon robot man­u­fac­tur­ers and also acts as a cen­tral inter­face to inte­grate cam­era sys­tems, grip­pers, force-torque sen­sors or PLCs with­out addi­tional effort.
To pro­gram and teach DENSO robots, ArtiMinds is there­fore a real alter­na­tive to man­u­fac­turer-depen­dent soft­ware solu­tions such as WIN­CAPS III. Pro­gram­ming is always based on native Pac­Script code.

DENSO offers SCARA, 5-axis and 6-axis robots as well as col­lab­o­ra­tive robots and uses more than 20,000 robots in its own pro­duc­tion. In the field of small indus­trial assem­bly robots, DENSO is the mar­ket leader. To sim­plify the pro­gram­ming of DENSO robots, the com­pany offers its own offline pro­gram­ming soft­ware, WIN­CAPS III, as well as numer­ous other soft­ware pack­ages and tools com­pat­i­ble with its stan­dard controllers.

ArtiMinds soft­ware solu­tions sup­port all DENSO 6-axis robots with RC8, RC8A and RC9 con­trollers. Thanks to their com­pact and light­weight design, DENSO robots are very ver­sa­tile, i.e. can be used for both sim­ple pick-and-place appli­ca­tions and more com­plex tasks such as fully auto­mated pro­duc­tion of filled med­ical syringes.

In order to imple­ment more com­plex sen­sor-adap­tive appli­ca­tions, the inte­gra­tion of cam­era sys­tems, elec­tri­cal grip­pers or force-torque sen­sors is nec­es­sary. ArtiMinds already con­tains the pro­to­cols and dri­vers of all well-known man­u­fac­tur­ers. This elim­i­nates the high inte­gra­tion effort and you remain flex­i­ble in your hard­ware setup. Addi­tional soft­ware such as RC Vision from Denso for vision appli­ca­tions is there­fore no longer required.
With over 60 tem­plates, ArtiMinds’ library cov­ers far more pro­gram tem­plates and appli­ca­tions than WIN­CAPS III, so you can pro­gram any kind of appli­ca­tion in a user-friendly way only by drag & drop, i.e. with­out writ­ing Pac­Script code.

Why pro­gram­ming DENSO robots with ArtiMinds?

You would like to auto­mate demand­ing tasks and processes with your DENSO robot with­out hav­ing to put days of effort into pro­gram­ming? You are plan­ning your first robot-sup­ported automa­tion project and would like to use a DENSO robot? You would like to remain man­u­fac­turer-inde­pen­dent and be able to trans­fer appli­ca­tions to other robots with­out reprogramming?
With the soft­ware ArtiMinds RPS you and your employ­ees are able to real­ize any kind of appli­ca­tion and to pro­gram and teach your robot your­self – with­out the need for spe­cific pro­gram­ming knowl­edge or tex­tual pro­gram­ming in Pac­Script. Over 60 pre­de­fined motion tem­plates ensure robust indus­trial appli­ca­tions and faster pro­gram­ming. That means for you, less costs, one sin­gle con­sis­tent tool and leaner processes.

ArtiMinds Robotics - Simplify the programming of your Denso robot with ArtiMinds RPS

How does ArtiMinds sup­port the effi­ciency of your DENSO robot?

To get the most out of your DENSO robot, ArtiMinds offers two approaches – ArtiMinds Robot Pro­gram­ming Suite (RPS) and ArtiMinds Learn­ing & Ana­lyt­ics for Robots (LAR).

ArtiMinds Robot Pro­gram­ming Suite (RPS) com­bines as robot pro­gram­ming soft­ware both online and offline pro­gram­ming in an intu­itive way to solve chal­leng­ing robotic tasks of your DENSO robot with­out writ­ing a sin­gle line of Pac­Script source code. Inte­grate end effec­tors, force torque sen­sors, vision sys­tems and PLC com­mu­ni­ca­tion to cre­ate flex­i­ble automa­tion solutions.

The auto­mat­i­cally gen­er­ated robot code runs directly on the DENSO RC8, RC8A and RC9 robot con­troller – ArtiMinds RPS requires no addi­tional hardware.

ArtiMinds Robotics - ArtiMinds RPS as an alternative to the Denso programming software WINCAPS

With ArtiMinds Learn­ing & Ana­lyt­ics for Robots (LAR) you get detailed insights into the pro­duc­tion processes of your DENSO robot. Based on ArtiMinds RPS, live sen­sor data from the robot, force sen­sor, vision sys­tem and end effec­tor are auto­mat­i­cally trans­ferred from the RC8, RC8A and RC9 robot con­troller. The sen­sor data is auto­mat­i­cally anno­tated and per­ma­nently stored in your inter­nal data­base. Ana­lyze this sen­sor data using var­i­ous KPIs and graph­i­cal eval­u­a­tions. In this way, you are able to eas­ily mon­i­tor pro­duc­tion, ana­lyze robot move­ments and opti­mize your DENSO programs.
