    • Kinetiq Teaching

    • Do you wish robotic welders were easier to set-up and train for new work pieces?

      With Kinetiq Teaching, you can now teach a robot by hand-guiding its arm through welding trajectories and easily set welding parameters with no in-depth knowledge of programming.

      The Kinetiq Teaching Solution

      Robotic welding no longer requires in-depth knowledge of programming; instead, machinists and welding staff can freely guide the robot arm through its workflow and adjust welding parameters on-the-fly via the teach pendant and test it live. This process results in a simple and intuitive approach to programming welding trajectories.

      Kinetiq Teaching enables people to demonstrate the placement of a robotic welding tip onto a work piece by physically guiding its end-effector. Buttons on the teach pendant interface are used to designate spot welds, line welds, speeds, and approach angles. Kinetiq Teaching significantly reduces the programming time and complexity of robotic welders.

      Benefits

      This intuitive robot teaching application enables users to:
      • Teach welding trajectories by hand-guiding the torch through the welding path;
      • Set up short runs quickly and easily;
      • Reduce robot programming time and cost;
      • Make robot programming simple and intuitive for any user.
  • CUSTOM GRIPPER DESIGN

  • In addition to our standard product, we also adapt our gripper technology to meet specific application requirements of robot manufacturers. Adapting can mean changing the size, payload, material, power source, etc. We have walked through the process with our partners in addressing the steps of evaluating and integrating technology for a successful go-to-market implementation. Sample steps include:
        • Evaluate the technical compatibility
        • Evaluate the market potential
        • Define the technical specifications of the adapted gripper
        • Define the best business model and strategy for the commercialization of the technology
        • Adapt our core technology to the specific robot application
        • Commercialize the gripper.
