Composites and Robotmaster
Robotmaster (Hypertherm Inc.) Posted 06/04/2015
For the past few years, Robotmaster (Jabez Technologies) has been responding to the growing demand for the robotized manufacturing of composites. The Aerospace, Defense, Automotive and Ship Manufacturing industries are all witnessing a strong demand for the use of composites. According to a study by market research firm Lucintel, the global aerospace composites market is expected to reach $112 billion annually by 2017, with a compound annual growth rate of 5.3 percent (source: CompositesWorld). This is where Robotmaster steps in. Jabez Technologies and its partners continue to demonstrate cost-effective and cutting-edge programming tools required for composite trimming, drilling, riveting and certain types of material layup.
Singularity, calibration, collisions, reach limitations, and motion granularity are uniquely complex to robotic systems and can make programming particularly cumbersome. Navigating around the errors can be time-consuming. The powerful Robotmaster Interactive Simulation Environment (RISE) provides a unique tool for programming, visualizing and optimizing processes/events quickly and easily.
These features increase productivity in the composite market when:
> Programming trimming, drilling and riveting applications
> Programming and verifying flexible tooling and robot interaction
> Proofing out and programming various aspects of automated tape layup
The following are exciting new features designed specifically for manufacturing of composite parts using robots:
- Programming of Configurable Universal Holding Fixtures (UHF)
- Comprehensive support for simple to complex drilling and riveting
- Easy management of complex robotic environments
- Ultrasonic inspection
