Simplified Offline Robot Programming

Monday, October 1, 2018

Hypertherm Robotmaster V7Hypertherm has launched Robotmaster V7, a task-based robot programming platform built from scratch on completely new architecture, according to company officials. The new standalone version reportedly enables simple and intuitive robot programming, even for first-time robot users, building off of Robotmaster’s offline-programming CAD/CAM software first introduced in 2002.

To create this new architecture, Hypertherm’s Robotic Software group, the developers of Robotmaster, added mathematical-optimization experts to its team, bringing added expertise in artificial intelligence and deep machine learning, as well as simulation and game experts well-versed in user interaction.

The software can be used by welding, cutting and other process experts without buying or learning CAD/CAM software. As with previous versions, Robotmaster V7 imports paths, but now makes easier for users to leverage any CAD/CAM tool choice, according to company officials.

The new software release targets automatic integrated welding and contour programming, including trimming, cutting, dispensing and deburring, as well as drilling and fastening.
