Robotic Production Technology of Auburn Hills, Mich., demonstrated new simulation software and a new laser cutting system at an open house June 22-24.
TrimPro is a personal-computer-based software that allows users to simulate and program a robot in three-dimensional space. RPT developed the software with Fanuc Robotics, based on its SimPRO software.
TrimPro can be used for water-jet cutting, deflashing and router trimming. At the open house, the software was shown water-jet cutting a small car headliner.
Robo-Lase is a robotic laser-cutting system, developed by RPT partner Robot Technology of Kleinostheim, Germany. Robo-Lase offers the precision and cut quality of robotic laser cutting to automotive trim manufacturers, vacuum forming firms and paint film producers, said Chuck Russo, RPT chief executive officer.
“It allows for trimming of some parts that cannot be processed with other trimming methods and has superior cut-edge quality compared to trim presses,” Russo said.
