Efficient programming and teaching of FANUC robots
ArtiMinds – The alternative to FANUC Roboguide and programming with TP and KAREL
For programming FANUC robots, the TP programming language is used as standard. In addition, FANUC offers the simulation software Roboguide for offline programming.
When it comes to programming and teaching FANUC robots, ArtiMinds RPS software is a real alternative that makes it easy to program even sophisticated robot applications without having to write a single line of FANUC program code yourself.
With more than 100 robot models, the Japanese robot manufacturer FANUC offers the largest range and is thus one of the world market leaders. Thanks to application-specific options, FANUC robots are suitable for a wide range of applications and industries. Particularly in heavy-duty handling, the industrial robots stand out with payloads of up to 2.3 tons as well as reaches of up to 4.7 meters. But of course, palletizing, painting, welding or machine loading belong also to the application portfolio.
The different fields of application and numerous software functions offered by FANUC’s standard R-30iB Plus controller, however, require special expert knowledge in application programming and, in some cases, even in two programming languages: FANUC TP and FANUC KAREL.
ArtiMinds RPS supports all FANUC 6-axis robots with R-30iB andR-30iB Plus controller.
Why programming FANUC robots with ArtiMinds?
The software ArtiMinds RPS offers a perfect seamless combination of online and offline programming and therefore provides consistent support in all phases of a FANUC robot application. With ArtiMinds, coordination or project-specific problems that can arise between individual process owners such as planners, programmers, workers or maintenance personnel can be easily resolved.
Without external service providers, you are able to program your FANUC robot even for demanding applications. In the integrated 3D simulation environment, you can check the reachabilitiy and collisions in advance and automatically create complex robot motion paths based on CAD files.
This means less costs, less programming effort and more flexibility for you.
ArtiMinds & FANUC – Your Takeaways
- ArtiMinds RPS as an alternative to FANUC Roboguide or programming in KAREL and TP programming languages
- A software solution for online and offline programming, simulation and optimization
- Native reusable TP code is created automatically
- Robot programs can also be subsequently transferred to other robot models or manufacturers – without reprogramming
Choose a robust, flexible and affordable automation solution – choose ArtiMinds.
We would be happy to show you in an online demo the range of applications and how to program FANUC robots with ArtiMinds.
How does ArtiMinds support the efficiency of your FANUC robot?
To get the most out of your FANUC 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 FANUC robot without writing a single line of TP 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 FANUC R-30iB or FANUC R-30iB Plus robot controller – ArtiMinds RPS requires no additional hardware.
With ArtiMinds Learning & Analytics for Robots (LAR) you get detailed insights into the production processes of your FANUC robot. Based on ArtiMinds RPS, live sensor data from the robot, force sensor, vision system and end effector are automatically transferred from the FANUC R-30iB or FANUC R-30iB Plus 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 FANUC programs.
What we can do to make FANUC robots more efficient
With ArtiMinds RPS and LAR, we facilitate the development and operation of flexible automation solutions with FANUC robots and many other robot types in almost all industries. Below you will find some application examples that have already been implemented with the ArtiMinds software family. Every conceivable task can be programmed with ArtiMinds RPS. And you remain flexible in the selection of your robot, grippers, force-torque sensors or camera systems.
