Elements

Learn more about how RoboLive® can help you!

RoboLive® is our solution for the analysis, optimization, and commissioning of robotic production processes.
It includes five elements for identifying, preventing, and eliminating weak points before and during production:

Integrated into the local network, the software automatically retrieves the actual process data from robots.
It connects them with the planned nominal data, and generates insights and understanding of the manufacturing process.
The visualized results are available to all users at any time.

Process Visualization

Process Visualization automatically links all existing data and visualizes it on a CAD model of the product.
It also records history and allows you to quickly highlight what has changed from one point in time to another.
It provides access to all the relevant information needed to understand your production processes.
This allows all parties involved to see, understand and implement the necessary corrective actions:
Not only a trained specialist, but any maintenance personnel familiar with the plant .

Example

Thanks to Process Visualization, the causes of weak points can be identified directly, so that adjustments can be made immediately and not iteratively.
The following practical example shows a possible application of Process Visualization. It can be seen how corrective actions were taken for incorrect naming and inaccurate coordinate systems that would otherwise have led to major problems. This result could have been achieved without RoboLive® at best with a lot of effort. With the Bestfit algorithm and Vehicle-0 Determination, the manual corrections could also be further automated.

Starting situation
1st step
2nd step
Final result
Condition after robot programming
Only the application of Process Visualization showed that process points had been named incorrectly and frame data had been programmed inaccurately.
Correction of the designation
With Process Visualization the correct processes were identified and assigned so that they could be corrected manually.
Correction of the frame data
With Process Visualization the correct frame date was identified so that it could be corrected manually.
Correction of the actual data
Since the real existing deviations were now clearly recognizable, the actual process points could be adjusted to the planned data.

Process Visualization helps to save enormous amounts of time, even if only a few process points are corrected.

Path Calibration

With Path Calibration, robot paths are adapted to on-site conditions.
RoboLive® recalculates the data of a robot program – process points as well as frame data.
This allows parts of the workload to be shifted from commissioning to planning and programming.
Starting situation
1. Simulation
2. Programming
3. Calibration
Final result
The realization of the paths no longer requires extensive teaching, but is based on simulation, calibration and adjustment.
First, calibration points are created in a virtual environment and then taught with identical naming on the real robot.
Path Calibration calculates the best possible overlay of the simulated and real calibration points and adjusts the robot program as desired.
The result is an optimized robot program.

Possible applications

There are several use cases for Path Calibration, all of which lead to improved robot program quality, significantly reducing the need for reteaching of process points.

Realize Offline Programs

Offline programs can be adapted to real conditions faster and easier with RoboLive®, since simulation does not perfectly.

Relocate Equipment

Existing robot paths are adapted to changed conditions. This is necessary when repositioning fixtures, tools, and even entire robots.

Standardize Paths

Once optimized, complex robot paths can be reused on standard equipment throughout the plant.

Vehicle-0 Determination

During Vehicle-0 Determination, RoboLive® calculates the optimal origin and orientation of the reference coordinate system.
This is done based on the existing data without special equipment or measurement time.
This allows you to implement and utilize these corrected frames completely automatically.

Example

Existing program vs. RoboLive® program uploaded to the simulation environment. The existing program uses obsolete/incorrect frame data. The simulation uses theoretical equipment placement, models, and frames.
