Stäubli also offers programming tools that are suitable for all possible user groups, from beginners to experts. These range from simple manual teaching and the use of prefabricated module blocks to the Stäubli Robotics Suite and VAL 3 programming for advanced users.
Users also have the option to simply program the robots via their regular multi-axis machine controller, their PLC or the Siemens TIA Portal. Communication interfaces are available in the form of uniVAL drive, uniVAL plc and uniVAL pi. These enable PLC programmers to become robot programmers in just a few steps – it’s straightforward, and saves time and money.
Programming a robot is still understood to be a very complex task. More and more users would like to venture into the automation of various production steps, if it were not for the time-consuming learning of a manufacturer-specific programming language and the demanding development of a complete application.
Our Easy to Program offers for any kind of user profile a graphical programming environment directly on the SP2+ handheld to create robot applications easily, quickly and without much training. Drag and drop blocks and edit their properties to develop your application even without sophisticated robot skills.
Benefit from our user guided and structured block wizards always focusing on the issue making you gain knowhow step by step.
Also OEMs and integrators are benefiting from the simplicity, embedded teaching interfaces, extension capability with custom VAL3 blocks and enclosed help of our Easy to Program solution. On top of that you are never losing the possibility switching to VAL3 for fully programming access.
Many industries, like Medical Robotics and Pharma, are moving to telemanipulation. One to remove the human from sensitive zone to avoid contamination, the other to have a better view of the surgery zone, or even more in the future for "telesurgery". A big step ahead is the feeling of what you touch in the joystick with such sensibility. Haptic device from Force Dimension and Stäubli make a great proof of concept that can inspire many other applications in other industry.
Our development regarding hand guided systems is first to focus on the need of the surgeon to work hand by hand with the robot during surgery.
Our development allows to hand guide our robot with high transparency of the movement that is unique for a rigid robot while managing the singularity, without compromising stiffness and precision.
Additional features added to ease the surgeon during movement.
