By combining a robot manipulator with galvo scanners (optical beam deflection systems) extremely versatile and efficient laser processing systems can be realized. In order to fully exploit the potential of these highly redundant kinematic systems (six mechanical, three optical axes), suitable solutions for programming and control are required.
Blackbird offers a unique portfolio of software and control solutions for your robotic remote-laser-applications. Our tools provide efficient planning, optimization and ramp-up of your system and help you to reach an an optimum cycle time and productivity.
Program and optimize your robot-scanner-system with a dedicated software package: The Scannermodule extends the Basemodule with powerful algorithms for path planning and optimization tailored to the special requirements of a remote-laser-system:
The following video clips give an example of programming and optimizing laser processing systems with the Scannermodule:
Realise remote-laser-systems with a universal and versatile control solution. The RobotSyncUnit offers an integrated user interface for setup, programming, optimizing and monitoring of remote-laser-applications. As a process controller, it ensures a synchronized process execution by the involved robot, scanner and laser. The system provides flexible interfaces to automation periphery and PLCs and is available for different robot makes.
RobotSyncUnit offers the following software functions:
The system is realized as a robust automation component in an integrated control cabinet:
