Is this not a question your machine operator is daily confronted with?
Perhaps you recognize the complex controller shown here?
Perhaps you find it scary to look at, let alone interact with?
It clearly radiates a complex and technical nature of interaction and understanding.
You most likely need extensive training to control that thing - right?
The complex pendant controller every robot maker is using is a huge bottleneck in most of the workshops.
The challenge for Us consisted of redesigning the interface of the Robot. Rather than a pendant with hundreds of unknown buttons, that has been the standard since forever, we took a very innovative decision to use an interactive touchscreen with very simple graphic interaction, to control the robot-loader and kept the Lathe controller as standard.
This means that the lathe can be used as standard CNC machine to make one single piece manually without interaction of the robot. All possible loading-unloading cycles are pre-programmed and the operator need only to fill in some of the values of the different stop/start points in the graphic interface. Simpler is not possible!
No robotics experience is required for the graphical robot controller. Our robot is already completely pre-programmed, so that the operator only needs to enter a few parameters.
This means a new series can be started in a matter of minutes.
