Rail/Rotary

Robotmaster provides an extensive suite of robotic programming and simulation functionality for rails and rotaries to easily program robots mounted on linear rails or parts mounted on rotary tables. The rails and rotaries can be used as indexers or in full simultaneous motion.

Advantages for programming additional axes

  • Automatic linear rail programming and rotary table synchronization for indexing or simultaneous 7 or 8 axis motion
  • Ability to manage and optimize rail/rotary axes
  • Flexible program output can automatically compensate for:
    • Fixed user frame
    • Dynamic user frame
    • Coordinated external motion
  • Rail or rotary positioning parameters can be used to easily control the robot configuration and posture for optimal trajectories
  • Ability to program and simulate up to 8-axis simultaneous motion
