JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
4D Engineering Ltd, the UK and Ireland Distributor for Robotmaster, announced the appointment of Loop Technology Ltd based in Dorchester, England, as an authorised reseller for the Robotmaster range of CAD/CAM software, for Offline Programming of Robots.
4D were impressed with Loop Technology's advanced system knowledge and capability with Robotic Integration, and ability to offer Robotmaster as an advanced OLP system to their existing robot integration capability.Loop Technology have considerable experience in robotic integration areas of machine vision, industrial robotics and motion control systems with additional experience in composite material robotic handling. Alun Reece, Technical Director at Loop, was looking for an offline robotic programming system for composite materials, specifically for trimming, drilling and surface machining which is capable of directly importing CAD models and using advanced software to programme the trajectory using either a 6 axis robot, or when additional rotary and rail axes are also added.The problems Loop had identified with other systems, was their inability to properly highlight and modify robot movements to overcome common issues such as singularity, reach, joint limits etc, without having to go back to the original CAD trajectory and be forced to modify it. Because Robotmaster uses advanced inverse kinematics of the actual robot cell, it can overcome all these issues very easily without the normal problems associated with other OLP robotic programming systems.More information:www.robotmaster-uk.com - www.looptechnology.com
