Easy start-up and programming of welding robots
KUKA.ArcTech adds intuitive commands, structured menus and practical status keys to a KUKA robot system for robotic arc welding. For simple and convenient operation, several practical status keys are added to the familiar KUKA smartPAD user interface to control the welding process and the power source. By mirroring the integrated EasyTeach status keys to the KUKA.ready2_pilot keys of the 6D mouse, welding technology commands can be programmed without taking your eyes off the weld seam.
Easy configuration of power sources
Preconfigured welding source profiles ensure high compatibility with all common power sources and enable uncomplicated integration. The flexible design enables control of power sources via job/program mode (setpoint values via program numbers) or characteristic/channel mode (setpoint values via several weld parameters).
The robot controller communicates with the power source via the field bus, e.g. the EtherCAT available as standard. With just a single mouse click, the holistic configuration is conveniently created with KUKA.WorkVisual and predefined configurations for power sources (e.g. for Binzel, ESAB, EWM Fronius, Kemppi, Megmeet, Miller, Lincoln, Lorch and SKS). Optimize your configuration to meet your requirements by means of customized parameterization.
KUKA.ArcTech welding software is modular in structure and can be adapted to your needs.
The option packages offer a wide range of functions to allow for easy operation of arc welding processes as well as efficient and fast programming. This enables targeted implementation of a broad variety of requirements for the arc welding process.
