FAQ

  • What is scan to path technology?

    Scan to path technology integrates 3D scanning and automated path planning to create precise and efficient manufacturing workflows. It involves scanning a physical object or part to generate a detailed 3D model, which is then used to automate the creation of tool paths for robotic systems.

  • How does scan to path help achieve a fully autonomous workflow for my shopfloor?

    Scan to path not only allows you to create the initial master program for brand new parts within minutes, but the 3D scanner also continuously inspects the workpiece and provides feedback to the robot. The system will automatically generate robot motions for areas that fail to meet production requirements on post-processed parts. Inspection and localized processing will repeat until a satisfactory outcome is achieved.

  • Do I need to create a new program every time i want to scan a new workpiece due to part-to-part deviation?

    No, you do not need to create a new program for each new workpiece. Augmentus' vision-guided robotic systems are capable of compensating for part-to-part deviations through autonomous calibration and adaptive programming. This ensures that even with variations in your workpieces, the system can adapt and maintain optimal performance without the need for manual reprogramming.

  • What if my workpiece is very large?

    At Augmentus, our systems are designed to handle a wide range of workpiece sizes, including very large ones. We offer compatibility with various scanning methods to ensure precise automation for large workpieces. This includes linear scanning via gantry-mounted systems, rotary scanning using turntables, and multi-angle scanning with automated stitching for comprehensive large workpiece profiling. Our advanced 3D vision technology and scalable robotic solutions maintain accuracy and efficiency throughout the process.

  • Why is Augmentus not just an "offline robot programming software"?

    Traditional offline robot programming software relies on importing CAD (Computer-Aided Design) models of the product and the robotic cell into the programming software to serve as digital representations of the physical objects. These CAD models may lack the accuracy and detail of the actual workpieces due to variations from manufacturing tolerances, deformations, or wear and tear.

    In contrast, Augmentus uses advanced 3D vision technology to enable vision-guided robot programming. This approach allows for greater precision and adaptability in dynamic environments, ensuring the robot can accurately interact with the real-world conditions and changes.

  • What is the difference between online and offline robot programming?

    Online robot programming is done by directly programming real robots that are installed in an industrial setting. Whereas, offline programming methods involve the creation of simulation or model robot programs away from the real production line. Online programming brings about real-time effects on the production process, while offline programming can be first tested without affecting real operations.

  • What is offline programming in robotics?

    Offline programming(OLP) is a method of robot programming where a robot program is built independently from the actual robot cell. OLP helps engineers create optimal program paths that are uploaded into real industrial robots to make them perform specific tasks. The simulated offline robot programs can be verified and transferred onto actual robot controllers for execution.

  • What are the key benefits of offline programming for robots?

    Offline programming allows engineers to verify and optimize stimulation robot programs before deploying them into real-world scenarios. Key benefits of a robot offline programming software for robots include- flexibility, risk-free testing, cost savings, and reduction in error and downtime.
