Path-guided Robot Applications with the Open Planning and Process Software VMP
Time- and cost-saving robot programming based on CAD models and paths
The Visual Motion Planner (VMP) software package enables You to generate robot programs for path-guided robot applications automatically and offline. It is ideal for processes where the robot path changes from time to time. For example, during grinding, gluing, plasma cutting or path welding in small series production.
This makes VMP a revolutionary solution to a common problem: In the applications mentioned above, the robot path is usually still "teached" manually. Whenever changes are necessary, they have to be readjusted point by point. This is an enormous effort.
A brand new, ground-breaking alternative
VMP takes advantage of the fact that the actual robot-path today is usually available as a CAD model. The software therefore imports the path data directly from the CAD program – the processing parameters are already provided.
In VMP, the path is then automatically converted into a robot program. To do so, ready-made programs are in the background: Depending on the application, they can be completed with the path data. VMP is a software package implemented in C#, the core of which is based on the functions of the KUKA Sim robot simulation system (workspace analysis, collision check).
With these features, VMP provides You with unique advantages:
- Automatic generation of robot programs based on the CAD models
- Considerably less time spent changing paths
- Cost savings (personnel no longer have to “teach” the robot)
- Higher accuracy (path planning by CAD program instead of manual adjustment)
- Use of proven functions possible
- Quickly individually expandable
The architecture of VMP is based on "plug-ins". These are small programs that provide additional functions: for importing and manipulating data as well as for exporting robot programs. The plug-ins can be added very easily. They are operated via their own Windows-compatible interface. The benefit for You:
When new requirements arise, You can easily and quickly expand VMP with suitable plug-ins.
After some time, You will have a wide range of ready-to-use programs for a wide variety of applications.
