Hypertherm Associates, an American manufacturer of industrial cutting products and software, has announced an update and a new name for its Robotmaster offline programming software for robots: Robotmaster 2023.
Robotmaster 2023 bridges the gap between CAD/CAM and robotics by enabling seamless integration between user-chosen CAD/CAM software and Robotmaster. This automatic integration eliminates the need to import and synchronize data for a 75% reduction in programming time. It also eliminates programming errors that can occur when using a manual process.
Additionally, the new version of Robotmaster allows for the creation of libraries that provide a more convenient way to store and reuse robot cell components. Users can easily preview and select components from the library and save modified or proprietary components for later use. This will reduce the cost of building and editing a cell by about 50%. Jobs that previously took an hour will now take 30 minutes.
The software developers have also added several customer-focused enhancements. These enhancements support the latest CAD formats and include enhancements to the CAM, UI (user interface), and UX (user experience) modules to make trajectory creation easier and further improve programming.
“We listen carefully to feedback from Robotmaster customers and are always working to make our robotic programming software even easier and faster to use,” said Miguel Morales, Application Engineering Manager for Hypertherm Associates‘ Robotmaster brand. “The features introduced today will allow CAD/CAM users to transition their processes to robotics knowing they can program their robot with confidence.”
“Robotmaster 2023 enhances an already powerful and intuitive user interface to make robotic programming easier and faster,” said Carlos Marcovici, P.Eng., Director of RobotM-Br, a Robotmaster distributor in South America. “The new functionality is very focused on meeting customer needs and demands, as well as processes such as deburring, deburring, polishing, welding and milling. The new bridge, for example, gives our users flexibility in their programming workflow. Whether they want to use a CAD/CAM package for path creation or take advantage of Robotmaster’s built-in path generation functionality, Robotmaster is part of the solution.
Robotmaster, a Hypertherm Associates brand, is offline programming software for robots that helps manufacturers maximize productivity in production runs of all sizes. Robotmaster makes programming parts of any complexity quick and easy with its integrated CAD/CAM functionality. This intuitive and powerful solution is designed for process experts, reducing the need for programming and robotics expertise. Learn more at www.robotmaster.com.
