SprutCAM Robot


SprutCAM Robot

A single environment for the offline programming (OLP) of industrial robots.
An efficient robot machining solution for the rapid creation of complex collision-free 3D movements in native 6 or more axes code (5 to 6 axis transformations are not required)

SprutCAM Robot offloads the tedious process of robot programming from the shop floor to a personal computer, making it a lot easier and more effective.

SprutCAM Robot offers an extensive range of operations for 3-5 axis milling, deburring, trimming, cutting, welding, tending and more.

SprutCAM Robot supports programming of robots from Fanuc, Kuka, Staubli, Yaskawa Motoman, Comau, Mitsubishi, OTC DAIHEN, ABB and many more. In addition, standard templates allow the rapid creation of new custom kinematic schemes for robots and robotic cells.

SprutCAM is unified environment. Use SprutCAM both for robots and for CNC machines without any additional fees or just add additional modules for special tasks.

Main advantages and benefits:

  • Improved productivity thanks to offline programming (reduction of robot idle periods and reduction of programming costs)
  • SprutCAM Robot applications include:
    • Milling (Stone / Wood / Foam / Resin)
    • Deburring / Trimming
    • Grinding / Polishing
    • Сutting (Plasma / Laser / Waterjet / Knife)
    • Welding
    • Painting / Spray Coating
    • Tending

  • Much faster than programming by teaching (without teaching points)
  • Easy programming of robots with rotary tables, robots on rails. Simultaneous control of a robot and unlimited number of linear and rotary additional positioning axes is supported. One example of such application is a robot simultaneously moving on a rail and doing some milling, another example is the continuous rotary machining of a part with a robot and a rotary table. The additional axes can be either controlled automatically using a set of rules or manually with the special “robot axes optimizer” feature.

  • Automatic optimization and search for collision-free motions. Robot programming in SprutCAM Robot is performed with the robot’s position and fixation in space taken into account — floor/wall/shelf/ceiling mount, any position of a robot inside a cell is supported. Both “part to tool” and “tool to part” configurations are allowed.
  • Realistic machining simulation and verification to guarantee the generated tool paths are error-free and efficient, SprutCAM Robot offers an advanced module for machining simulation. Machining simulation in SprutCAM features:
    • Precise ‘real life’ robot kinematics simulation
    • Material removal simulation
    • Mechanical collisions detection
    • Part gouging detection
    • Robot singularities and out of reach zones detection

  • Generation of robot’s native NC code. The generated CLData is converted to native robot command codes by a postprocessor. Many ready to use postprocessors for all major brands are already available. In addition, the built-in Postprocessor Generator can be used to create new or adjust existing postprocessors.
