Basic and Offline Programming (OLP)

The seminar teaches the basic functions of the software.
The contents range from assigning and projecting welding spots on components, checking accessibility and collisions to creating bypass points and preparing the programs for the real robot. The seminar will cover robot-guided welding, external welding and robots with integrated additional axes. Depending on customer requirements, the focus of the robot part can be placed on different manufacturers (e.g. ABB, Fanuc, KUKA).  The setup of the respective RCS module for the selected robot manufacturer is also discussed.
By combining the basic functions as well as the knowledge of creating point operations, the participants get to know the functional range of Process Simulate in detail.

All those who want to get started or improve their skills with Process Simulate.

None, knowledge of robots would be an advantage.

Learning goals:
Functional basics and introduction to working with Process Simulate using a project example. Understanding of the data model in Process Simulate and learning the basic program functionalities. Acquire knowledge in modelling and kinematisation of resources (external traversing axis, welding gun, gripper, ...), creation of a simulation for welding robots with head tool and robot on external traversing axis with gripper and stationary welding gun. Procedure for offline programming (OLP) with Process Simulate.

Day 1: Introduction to the software Process Simulate

We look at a finished project.  Using an example, we learn about the basic functions of Process Simulate.
At the end of the day...
           … you will know how to start Process Simulate.
           … you can customize the interface to your needs and use different layouts.
           … you know how to load studies.
           … you are able to navigate in the graphics window and in the different navigation trees.
           … you know the important basic functions of the software.
           … you can move robots and jump to locations.

Day 2: Data structure in Process Simulate

We learn how to set up a new project in Process Simulate.
At the end of the day...

          … you know how to create a new project.
          … you will be able to import data or create new data.
          … you can create new studies.
          … you are familiar with the functions for positioning elements in the structures and in the graphics window.
          … you can measure and dimension.
          … you know what options are available to extract information from Process Simulate.

Day 3: Offline programming (OLP) and necessary preparations

We link the data and start the offline programming.
At the end of the day...​
          … you know how to attach tools to robots.
          … you can connect (attach) resources to each other.
          … you will be able to link predefined machining points with the corresponding component.
          … you know how to project machining points onto a sheet metal.
          … you are familiar with the functions for checking reachability and optimising reachability.
          … you can insert bypass points between the working points.

Day 4: Continuation OLP, modelling 3D geometries and setting up robots

We continue with the creation of a first robot operation and set up a robot regarding RCS module. An additional robot will be added to the study and further robot operations will be created. During the course of the day we will get into the modelling and kinematisation functions of Process Simulate.
At the end of the day...
          … you will know how to set up a robot in Process Simulate.
          … you will be able to perform a collision check.
          … you know how to set up and program a robot with external axes.
          … you can create and kinematize 3D geometries.

Day 5: Creation of an overall simulation and documentation as video

We finish the creation of the robot operations and combine our operations into an overall process.
At the end of the day...
          … you can create and run an overall simulation in standard mode.
          … you know how to create videos in Process Simulate.
          … you are able to export robot operations from Process Simulate to run them on a real robot (Download).
          … you know how to integrate robot programs of a real robot into Process Simulate (Upload).

Classroom seminar (5 days):

Currently there are no fixed attendance dates for the seminar Process Simulate Basic and Offline Programming (OLP).

If you are interested, please contact us. We will be happy to make you an offer tailored to your personal needs.

- NEW – Live online seminar - Conditions and dates:

We also offer this course as Live online seminar.

Based on the previous experience of the online seminars, the seminar duration per day is reduced compared to the face-to-face seminar. This results in a higher number of training days with the same content.
The 5-day face-to-face seminar then becomes a 7-day online seminar.

The trainer conducts the seminar via meeting software, presents the training material here and the tasks in Process Simulate / Process Designer are also demonstrated here.
The remote access of the participants to the ICARUS training notebooks is done via Microsoft Teams and practical exercises are performed independently. Since the notebooks are set up around the trainer's workstation, the trainer can provide assistance at any time if required.
Thus, two monitors are required for the participants.

The next dates:
     - Week 26, 28 June  - 02 July 2021 (full day)

If you are interested in an online course, please contact us for an offer and information about the conditions.
