HyperStart® is a software function that enables Motoman® robots to improve weld quality and save cycle time by optimizing how welds are started and monitored. HyperStart is standard on all DX100-based controllers and compatible with analog or digital interfaces for Fronius, Lincoln and Miller power sources. Set it now or have a technician come to help start your savings. Can be retrofitted to Motoman NX or XRC robot controllers.
Parameters include: static start, dynamic start, arc end timers, welder arc end control and arc failure timers.
Manufacturers using HyperStart have realized 10-20% cycle time reduction; this includes high-density applications where several welds are applied each minute. HyperStart eliminates pause before robot starts to weld, improving productivity.
