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. 


RPS Key Facts

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.

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

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.



In just a few min­utes, we will show you how to plan, pro­gram, oper­ate, ana­lyze and opti­mize robot appli­ca­tions cost-effi­ciently, intu­itively and eas­ily with ArtiMinds RPS using FANUC robots.

The non-bind­ing free online demo is the per­fect way to get a first impres­sion of the soft­ware, the appli­ca­tion port­fo­lio and if it suits your needs.
