Simulation to keep cycle time
Optimisation of cycle times is important for successful automation solutions. This is true for machining processes with new machines as well as for new machining processes on existing machines.
“New machine” example: a new workpiece has to be machined. The following questions will arise: What is the cycle time? Can the robot arm access all relevant areas? Which kinds of robots will be used? HBi Robotics creates a simulation to find out which robot will do the job adequately. From this simulation we create a presentation for you as a customer. We are then able to derive possible variants and discuss them with you. It will be easy for you to find out whether you can integrate for example cleaning or labelling processes or you better outsource these processes. Your benefit: you will know in advance how the process runs. The better the simulation, the better you can use time and material to save costs.
“Existing machine” example: in the case of new workpieces or products which have to be machined or manufactured by an already existing machine, our simulation will also provide important advantages for you. The simulation created for you can show whether all positions can be accessed and help to avoid collisions resulting from robot movements. Afterwards, programming can be completed. The result is a significant reduction of recommissioning time. In this case too, a better use of time and material and cost saving effects are further benefits.
