Hypertherm is launching Robotmaster V7, a task-based robot programming platform based on a new architecture.

The new programming platform builds on the performance of Robotmaster’s offline programming CAD/CAM software, first introduced in 2002.
Robotmaster V7 will make its public debut at Automatica 2018 from June 19 to 22 in Munich, Germany in Hall B5.309.
To create this new architecture, Hypertherm’s Robotic Software group, the developers of Robotmaster, added new experts in mathematical optimization who understand artificial intelligence and deep machine learning, as well as simulation and game experts who understand user interaction and know how to apply their skills in the industrial space.
Robotmaster V7 uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality, which means that it can be used by welding, cutting and other process experts without buying or learning complex CAD/CAM software. As in past versions, Robotmaster V7 imports paths, but now makes it easier for end users to leverage any CAD/CAM tool choice. This intuitive tool bridges the gap between robots and manufacturing by providing easy programming solutions for part manufacturing.
Robotmaster V7 targets automatic integrated welding and contour programming including trimming, cutting, dispensing and deburring, as well as drilling and fastening. It navigates complex part geometries and optimizes robot paths while synchronizing movements and preventing collisions between one or more robots, parts and tooling. It can be used for offline robotic programming in a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, power generation/energy and welding. Subsequent modules will enable additional tasks, including surfacing, 3D milling, additive manufacturing and inspection. The current version of Robotmaster offers support for these applications; however once V7 support is available for these applications, they will be more automated and easier to use.
Future editions will incorporate specialized task sharing tools for multi-robot workcells and Industry 4.0 capability, enabling the Smart Factory.
