Milling Using Motoman UR130 Robot and MecSoft’s CAM System – Proof of Concept

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

MecSoft recently announced a new business partnership with the company GoodFA in South Korea. GoodFA sells CNC machines and industrial robots with the option to purchase bundled MecSoft’s CAM software and Mechatronic’s IRBCAM robotics software with their purchased machines.

GoodFA Shares a Proof of Concept Session Using MecSoft’s CAM System

Recently, GoodFA took a video of a ‘proof of concept’ session where they generated tool paths on a surfaced ‘duck’ model using MecSoft’s CAM system, then processed those tool paths through the IRBCAM system to drive a Motoman UR130 robot to machine the ‘duck’ from a foam block. The video shows snapshots of the MecSoft CAM tool paths, then the IRBCAM robot simulation, then finally the actual machining of the foam workpiece using the Motoman robot. With tongue-in-cheek, one must say that the results are pretty ‘duckie’.

The video below is a MecSoft modification of the original video which has been chopped and accelerated to show the full process in just over four minutes of viewing.

Congratulations to our partner, GoodFA, for a job well done and for providing this excellent combination of technologies to your market and clients.
