The most commonly used industrial robots are linked to the robot controller, that is connected to a laptop, desktop computer or (internal or Internet) network. The computer is installed with corresponding interface software (remote desktop software). Specialized robot software is run either in the robot controller or in the computer or both depending on the system design.
Due to the highly proprietary nature of robot software, most manufacturers of robot hardware also provide their own software. While this is not unusual in other automated control systems, the lack of standardization of programming methods for robots does pose certain challenges. For example, there are over 30 different manufacturers of industrial robots, so there are also 30 different robot programming languages required.
By using SupraTix cloud-controlled robot solution it is possible to handle brand-specific robot programming languages from a universal programming language and benefit from easy-to-use visual editor and customer-friendly user interface. Moreover, due to cloud-based character of the solution, the robots can be operated from a remote location. The customer benefits from a staff reduction, while the production process with an implementation of the solution requires less personnel. A software maintenance is provided by SupraTix.
Industrial robots in mainboard production – typical process:
A factory worker has to manage every robot type through an individual robot controller or in the computer (Remote Desktop Software) on site. The employee has to be able to use and program robotics in several programming languages. The feedback comes back from every robot device to the controller, and a worker process the information separately.
Industrial robots in mainboard production with SupraTix cloud-controlled robot solution:
A factory worker, even without a knowledge of different robot programming languages, operates simultaneously all robots involved in the production through a robotics API and user-friendly visual editor. For example, the following processes can be managed:
- Automated and/or manual insertion of THT components;
- Wave soldering under nitrogen atmosphere;
- Pick and place components;
- Labelling, etc.
The data came from different robotics is unified in the cloud solution and the user becomes comprehensive and consistent feedback. Besides, the user has access to a number of AI features, like analytics (measurement, value- and data management) and simulation.
