SINUMERIK Run MyRobot combines robots with machine tools

In the course of digitalizatizon, robots and machine tools are increasingly collaborating. SINUMERIK Run MyRobot provides the right solutions – from simple connections, to the convenient integration for handling tasks, through to the full system integration of the robot kinematics. In the topic of automation, machine operators increasingly see an effective lever which allows to increase the productivity more flexibly, while maintaining a constant workpiece quality. To achieve this goal, the machine tools must be smoothly integrated in the manufacturing processes using appropriate networking solutions, and the robots must be integrated in the machine tools using predefined interfaces.

SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /EasyConnect

SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /EasyConnect is based on the standard defined by VDW/VDMA and conveniently integrates robots quickly into a machine tool. The predefined engineering interface allows to flexibly respond to the requirements arising with the respective automation solution. Thanks to EasyConnect, robots from different manufacturers can be connected in a standardized manner with SINUMERIK CNC controllers. They are integrated according to the Plug-and-Play principle. An automated workpiece flow increases the productivity, even in case of large batch sizes.

 

Field of application:

  • Handling

SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Handling

SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Handling allows to operate and teach the robot on the SINUMERIK operator panel. The commissioning process performed when handling new workpieces is simplified significantly by the uniform operation on the SINUMERIK. The SINUMERIK cycle programming function allows to quickly and conveniently program the robot. No robot know-how is required for this. Further, the robot can be easily operated by the machine operator without having to undergo extensive training.

 

Field of application:

  • Handling

SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Machining

With SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Machining, the SINUMERIK takes over the robot path control. This supports the precise and fast execution of machining programs. NX CAM Robotics allow to consistently integrate the robot in the existing CAD/CAM-CNC process chain and IT infrastructure. The interfacing of CNC controller and robot increases the productivity and flexibility and ensures the requested precision and quality of the workpieces.

 

Field of application:

  • Path-controlled handling
  • Machining
  • Hybrid (path-controlled handling & machining during the machining time)

SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Direct Control

SINUMERIK Run MyRobot /Direct Control allows to integrate the mechanic robot model in the SINUMERIK CNC. As a result, no additional robot controller is required. The direct control concept significantly simplifies the configuration of the controller hardware and optimizes the spare parts management process. The unique SINUMERIK-controlled robot technology provides further improvements regarding accuracy and dynamics, together with the benefits arising from a single-source controller concept. Further, the concept reduces the time and expenditure required for commissioning and engineering tasks.
