Multiple Robot Coordinated Motion Software

KUKA Robotics has introduced its KUKA.RoboTeam Coordinated Motion Software that synchronizes motion start and motion time of two or more robots for geometric coupling of multiple robots and state-of-the-art production. KUKA.RoboTeam transfers decision making and responsibility of conventional, centralized PLC functions directly to the robot group for autonomous group execution.

With KUKA.RoboTeam, synchronization commands are programmed in the robot programming interface with modifications to the path or velocity of each individual robot in the group that have an immediate effect on all other robots in the group. All safety-relevant signals are immediately communicated within the group, and an emergency stop of any single robot triggers synchronized, path-maintaining braking of the entire robot group.

"Geometrically coupled robots provide an extremely flexible solution for all handling tasks in which heavy loads need to be transferred and ensure process-optimized positioning even of pliant workpieces," said a KUKA spokesperson. "This function can also be used for the application of parallel processes alongside the transfer of materials."
