Laser cutting is a non-contact process that uses a laser beam to cut iron materials with a thickness of less than 6mm. This technology is commonly used for upper body parts of cars and trucks. The use of robots for laser cutting can bring considerable cost advantages and at the same time optimize the production layout.
High-quality cutting edge
Low heat input
Fast processing speed
Low investment cost
Easy integration and flexibility
ABB is a world leading manufacturer of industrial robots and robotic systems, with its headquarter located in Zurich, Switzerland. ABB has developed two sophisticated software tools to support cutting applications.
1.ABB RobotStudio cuttting PowerPac: The offline programming package can be inserted into RobotStudio and allows users to generate and modify the programming path in a 3D simulation environment instead of on-site in the factory.
2.ABB RobotWare cutting: advanced controller software that can use ABB robots to optimize laser cutting. It includes sophisticated tools for robot debugging and calibration, peripheral device integration, and program generation for complex paths and shapes.
