IPS Robot Optimization

Award winning technology for Robotics. Proven results: 75% faster commissioning, 25% improved cycle time.

Programming complex robot stations in no time

Requests

  • Are all points accessible, can all trajectories be followed?
  • Can minimum distances be maintained?
  • Is the quality of the sealing seam given by compliance with the boundary conditions?
  • Flexible production: Can all vehicle derivatives, including new ones, be processed in the plant?
  • Can robots be saved or is another robot accelerating production?

With tools such as automatic task planning, sequencing and line balancing the user will program robot stations in no-time, resulting in improved cycle time solutions that can be run directly on the real physical robot. Programs are automatically calculated for a broad range of applications, including spot, stud and arc welding, inspection, sealing, adhesive, paint and additive manufacturing.

Benefits
Automatic balancing of tasks between stations and robots

Automatic balancing of tasks between stations and robots

  • Generates solutions free of collisions to perform each sealing or welding tasks.
  • Optimizes cycle time by automatic load balancing between robots
  • Reachability analysis free of collisions
  • Results lead to optimized paths and executable robot codes
Sequencing, coordination and generation of motions without collision

Sequencing, coordination and generation of motions without collision

  • Determines optimum paths and sequence
  • Ensures minimum clearance between robots
  • Planning of TCP trajectory for sealing applications and welding
Handling of dresspacks

Handling of dresspacks

Three major wearing factors:

  • Bending
  • Contact
  • Tugging

Therefore a contact handling of complete robot cells taking the dress packs into account in one virtual environment.

Challenges: Avoid the collision and optimize the robot sequences “We provide the IPS Virtual Paint user a friendly and easy to use software for path planning. Whether robot spray or sealing, on-site teaching always takes time and resources. With a given trajectory, some posture is hard to reach or will produce a collision. With the combined simulation with IPS Virtual Paint, the user can change some posture and verify the effects. The intelligent solver can optimize the robots’ sequences and loads. This feature reduces the waiting time and artificial participation. We strongly recommend the painting engineers to use the IPS Solutions. It makes the work more effective and feasible.”
