Programming Robotic Arms

programming robotic arms

When programming robotic arms, robot operators use software commands or instructions that allow the robot arm to perform certain tasks. Moreover, robot programming is a well-organized structure that includes the use of pushbuttons to indicate when to start or stop the operation. However, the operator needs to consider each of these elements carefully when programming robotic arms. Please bear in mind that robotic software varies according to the robot manufacturer.

At this stage, operators need to consider the safety cell components. Mainly, the robot is a set of robust mechanical devices capable of causing serious injuries to the operator.

Steps for Offline Robotic Programming Arms

Here below is a breakdown of the steps that take place for the robot programming aspect:

  • We build a complete robot cell simulation using the CAD data from the project (Fixturing CAD models, End Of Arm Tooling CAD models, Peripheral equipment CAD Models, and Guarding and Safety Devices).
  • Define the TCPs (Tool Centre Points) for each element of the End Of Arm Tooling
  • We define the fixturing and cell coordinate systems (Work Objects ABB, User Frames FANUC, Base Coordinates KUKA).
  • We program the key movement positions via the simulation.
  • Define the virtual IO.
  • Create the offline program structure in some form of text editor, for example, Notepad++
  • Import the programs into the simulation software.
  • Test the robot cycles.
  • We will send the robot programs and setup files to the customers after testing.
  • The customer imports the robot programs and setup files into the robot onsite.
  • The customer tests the sequences and reports back any areas requiring attention.

Robotic Cell Design & Robotic Simulation

Robotic Cell Design

One of the most critical features of robotic cell design and its programming is safety. Therefore, cell design involves planning for a fully functioning integration process. Additionally, An industrial robot cell is a workstation that consists of at least one robot and its controller, along with safety measures. Generally, there are two types of robotic cell designs: steel and aluminum.

Aluminum is lightweight and easy to modify or extend without welding or painting. On the other hand, steel has a rugged appearance and is suitable for heavy work, such as metal processing industries.

Phoenix offers both types of cells, and you can choose the one that suits your work best.  Our experts can also assist you in the selection process if you have any confusion in your mind.

Robotic Cell Design

Robotic Cell Design Safety Components

Whenever it comes to the use of sophisticated and complicated technology, like robotic systems, safety must come first. Moreover, it is estimated that between 20% and 50% of the cost of a robot installation is due to safety-related issues. Therefore, cell design is an essential factor that contributes to the safety of the integration system.

These safety features create a safe working environment for the employees to work on the robot cells. Because of this, some of the safety measures to protect human operators from physical harm are constructing physical barriers between the robot and human workers, emergency stop buttons, and laying out the equipment within the work cell.
