Version 7 of robotic programming platform
- December 9, 2018
Hypertherm has introduced its new Robotmaster V7 software.
The task-based robotic programming platform is based on a new architecture, which Hypertherm’s Robotic Software group developed by adding mathematical optimization experts who understand artificial intelligence and deep machine learning, as well as simulation and game experts whose focus is user interaction.
“Robotics and CAD/CAM expertise are not a prerequisite to create error-free robot programs with Robotmaster V7 since it is a task-based robot programming platform built around the user, for the user,” said Chahe Bakmazjian, head of strategy for Hypertherm’s Robotic Software Team. “Robotmaster V7 also has unmatched flexibility and configurability and transfers the job to another robot brand or workcell, without task reprogramming. This is an industry first.”
The Robotmaster V7 release 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 works 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.
