The combination of Mastercam and Robotmaster is rapidly becoming the standard when it comes to robotic programming for both CNC and NDT applications. Robotmaster works as a seamless plug-in to Mastercam and takes the calculated toolpaths and trajectories then optimises them for use with the specified robot. Because the kinematic model of the robot is built into Robotmaster, it easily warns and graphically shows any issues such as joint overtravel, reach limits, singularity etc, which can then easily be corrected without the need to go back end edit the originally calculated toolpaths. Robotmaster can be used to programme a wide range of Robot makes including ABB, Fanuc, Kuka, Motoman, Staubli etc. The combination of a quality 6 axis robot, spindle and Robotmaster makes for a highly flexible and extremely cost effective CNC machining cell for composite and softer materials.
