Description: Manufacturing/Production

  • Generate and modify geometry-based arc weld trajectories
  • RAE users can generate and modify arc weld trajectories with a full suite of geometry-based capabilities. RAE automatically creates fully detailed robotic trajectories for both seam search and arc welding based on the CAD models of the parts to be welded. The trajectories include robot weld locations as well as approach and departure via points
  • Optimize workpiece positioning
  • Workpiece positioning mechanisms present the workpiece to the welding robot so that an optimal weld can be achieved. Traditionally, programming these is a difficult, time-consuming manual process. RAE automatically calculates the optimal joint values of the workpiece positioning device
  • Optimize trajectories
  • Automatically optimize a robot’s motion by computing standard motion parameters such as turn numbers, arm configuration, gantry positions and rail values along a robot trajectory. RAE also provides tools for optimizing cycle time and creating a collision-free path. The user can copy or mirror existing robot tasks. The cloned or mirrored task also includes all supporting robot motion data. This facilitates the re-use of robot tasks when other robots are performing similar tasks elsewhere
  • Create a swept volume from the robot task
  • RAE can create a swept volume of the robot or the tooling based on the motion in the robot task. The volume can then easily be shared with tool designers to communicate the robot or tools working envelope
  • Supports advanced logic and I/O in device programs
  • RAE allows users to create input and output signals between robots and other devices. Input and output ports can also be easily created from an external file. RAE also provides advanced logic programming instructions through its easy-to-use interface. These logic commands let the user insert conditional statements (if-then-else) and looping statements into the robot task.
  • Robot Simulation On-the-Go (Offline Mode)
  • Users can disconnect their Robot Simulation Engineer App session from the ENOVIA database and continue to work on their Robot simulation while disconnected from the database and the network. Data can be created and modified while disconnected. Automatic database reconciliation occurs upon reconnection.
  • Simulate controller-specific weld profiles
  • Robot Simulation Engineers can fully simulate controller-specific weld schedules for a robot-controller combination with the arc welding profile user interface. Weld profiles include start, end, and included weld points; seam data such as motion parameters and weld data like voltage and amperage; and weave data for the weld tip motion pattern, as well as speed and delays
  • Quickly generate seam search trajectories
  • RAE users can rapidly generate seam search trajectories using standard patterns and controller-specific constraints. Simply select the robot, the base geometry, the wall geometry, and the side geometry. With a few mouse clicks, you can define a seam search trajectory specific to your selected robot, controller, and sensor

Objectives:

  • Fast, simple robotic workcell layout
  • RAE lets Programmers choose from an extensive library of robot and controller models from all major industrial robot manufacturers. Auto placement and workspace envelope tools help users position the robot in a reachable position and benefit from early feasibility studies
  • Early discovery and resolution of design for manufacturing (DFM) issues
  • RAE lets Robot Simulation Engineers perform robot task feasibility studies early in the planning and detailing stages, reducing the cost of re-work generated by product and tooling changes
  • Concurrent robot simulation
  • Robot Simulation Engineers can concurrently create and validate individual robot tasks in a single workcell or assembly line or across an entire factory. As users complete their work, the robot task details become available to all stakeholders and are incorporated into the parent process, so that multiple users concurrently incorporate the collective work into their own
  • Improved collaboration between Simulation Engineers and designers
  • Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, RAE supports collaboration throughout the extended enterprise. Powerful lifecycle and change management capabilities streamline the business process and improve the overall quality of work
  • Creation, simulation and validation of robot tasks in the manufacturing context
  • RAE lets Robot Simulation Engineers create and validate robot tasks in a variety of manufacturing contexts. This results in the best possible understanding of how motion variables will impact task definition. RAE also includes Realistic Robot Simulation I (RRS-I) for increased robot trajectory and cycle-time accuracy
  • Greater productivity for Simulation Engineers
  • RAE gives engineers a clear understanding of the shop floor environment and the work to be done. The simplified interface is context-based; for example, when a user clicks on a weld seam or seam search trajectory, RAE presents a set of 3D trajectory creation and modification commands. Single-click robot trajectory updates help ensure that programs are current and that they reflect the latest product design modifications
  • Weld quality assurance
  • RAE’s positioner optimization function optimally orients the weld joint so that proper welding procedures are followed. This ensures that weld trajectories and programs are of high quality. Integrated controller-specific weld tables ensure the accuracy of production programs and simulated cycle times
