Hypertherm Associates, a U.S.-based manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, has released an e-book on the standardization of robotic languages from its Robotmaster brand of offline programming software for robots.
The educational e-book “Achieving Standardization in Robot Programming” features two technologies to address the market demands for a single universal robot programming solution, including Robotmaster.
Despite the industry’s rapid growth, there are various international standards in the field of robotics governing safety requirements, definitions and terminology, performance and testing methods; however, there are currently no standard requirements regarding the programming languages used in programming.
“As a key player in the robotic programming space, we recognize the importance of addressing this gap in the standards and providing solutions for robot programmers worldwide,” said Natalie Adams, Hypertherm Associates product marketing manager for Robotmaster robotic software. “So, whether you are a seasoned robot programmer or just beginning to look into robotic solutions, this e-book is an excellent resource for users looking for a universal programming solution to increase productivity and profitability.”
The e-book addresses the challenges that arise from the lack of standard programming languages, envisions a world addressing these challenges and explores why the problem exists, while highlighting the technologies available in the market that can overcome these challenges. It is a valuable resource for manufacturers, fabricators and robotic integrators who would benefit from a standardized method of programming their industrial robots, regardless of brand. In addition, readers of all experience levels can understand the importance of achieving standardization in robotic programming languages through this e-book.
