The software uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality to make robotic programming easy and intuitive for everyone, even first-time users. Click image to enlargeHypertherm’s newly released Robotmaster Version 7.4 offline robot programming software version contains several enhancements to simplify robotic programming.

Major enhancements to Remote Tool Center Point (RTCP) allow for an improved end user experience and exploit the full capabilities of any robotic cell.

Additions to the surface paths include more strategies and advanced tools for applications such as polishing, grinding, deburring and more. These tie-in with the enhancements to RTCP or traditional configurations for robotic finishing. 

Another new feature is faster processing times when saving, loading, and calculating jobs, plus improved real time feedback during simulation for faster part programming times.

Enhancement to the Robotmaster Interactive Simulation Environment (RISE) means a more realistic simulation for external axes, along with tools to better control motion between the robot and external axes.

The software uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality to make robotic programming easy and intuitive for everyone, even first-time users. It’s used by a wide range of industries to program robots for tasks that include surfacing, 3D milling, additive manufacturing, welding, painting, and more.
