Hypertherm Associates has launched a major version update and new name for its Robotmaster offline programming software for robots: Robotmaster 2023.
Robotmaster 2023 bridges the gap between CAD/CAM and robotics by enabling seamless integration between a user’s chosen CAD/CAM software and Robotmaster. This automatic integration eliminates the need to import and sync data for a 75 percent reduction in programming time. It also eliminates the programming errors that can happen when using a manual process.
In addition, the new Robotmaster version allows for the creation of libraries that provide a more convenient way to store and re-use robotic cell components. Users can easily preview and select components within the library and save modified or proprietary components for later use. This will reduce the cost of building and editing a cell by approximately 50 percent. Jobs that used to take an hour will now take 30 minutes.
