Offline programming is the best way to maximise return on investment for your robot systems. Our programming engineers use ABB’s latest simulation and offline programming software to create new programmes for palletising systems prior to installation on site. The software enables our engineers to make changes to existing programmes offline which minimises production downtime. Programmes are altered and then dropped into the robot control panel on site. Robot studio is built on the ABB virtual controller, an exact copy of the real software that runs your robot in production. This allows realistic simulations to be performed.
RMG-HMI V2 Bespoke Robot Programming
Developed in response to the need for a simple “operator” friendly interface platform, RMG software engineers have extracted the commonly required process controls from the complex robot programming pendant and made them available on a simple to use and understand touch screen display. The main robot controller never needs to be touched by the operator as all modifying positions and general running of the robot can be accessed via the RMG HMI. Bag position values can be altered whilst the robot is running and the new position is updated and saved immediately and automatically. Number of layers required on a pallet is input on the HMI and can be changed while the machine is running Layer heights are calculated automatically from the bag height value. As bag heights can often vary in the production process, a simple procedure on the HMI allows quick manual adjustment. Thereby retaining clean accurate placement on higher layers.
Programmes are altered and then dropped into the robot control panel on site. Robot studio is built on the ABB virtual controller, an exact copy of the real software that runs your robot in production. This allows realistic simulations to be performed.
For extra peace of mind, we can support our robots with maintenance plans and 24hr spares service to prevent any down time. All used robots are fully tested in our factory and once fitted come with 6 month warranty. Our technical team have developed programming to support the ABB robot palletisers, making them far more user friendly for operators switching between various products and pallet stacks. Extensive training is provided to all customers following installation.
Advantages of using RMG-HMI V2
•HMI Training from RMGroup engineers provided.
•No prior knowledge of programming a robot required
•Reduces costly production downtime
•Allows operators to make programme changes safely – without having to use the robot teach pendant.
•Provides operators more confidence to make their own programme changes without assistance from RMGroup engineers
9RMG-HMI V2 collates accurate production figures that can be exported via USB
