Detroit — Wittmann Battenfeld will feature its newest robot programming tool, the R9 Quick New Wizard, at the Injection Molding & Design Expo, May 25-26 in Detroit's Huntington Center.
R9 Quick New is designed to provide molders with an easier and more detailed tool for programming the functionality of their Wittmann R9 robots.
The Quick New Wizard is a guided programming tool consisting of two components:
• The first component is a questionnaire where the user selects the processes required to successfully remove any combination of parts /runners from the injection molding machine and place them in the appropriate location and mechanism (conveyor, tote, drawer, grinder) downstream from the press.
• The second component is a Quick Editor. Based on the selections from the questionnaire, a series of parameters are generated for fast and simple editing of all positions, timers and speeds needed to complete the process resulting in an efficient structured text program, reference program and end-of-arm tooling change program.
The answers provided by the user automatically create a text program that is used to program the R9 robot.
Wittmann Battenfeld is based in Vienna, Austria.
