CAC/CAM specialist Delcam (Birmingham, U.K.) will show how to program complex robot machining operations with its PowerMILL Robot CAM system. Delcam notes that robots programmed with PowerMILL Robot are already used in the marine, aerospace, rail and wind energy sectors of the composites industry for the manufacture of models, patterns, moulds and fixtures for component manufacture, and for the finish machining of composite parts. The core functionality of PowerMILL Robot consists of three main steps: programming, simulation (including analysis) and creation of the robot programs. PowerMILL Robot can be used to simulate the complete machining operation and to control the robot’s movements through different variables, such as axis limits, axis priorities and workplane constraints. Various aspects within the configuration of the robot cell, such as axis limits, tool constraints and home position, can be defined, and the simulation of the robot completed within those constraints.
