System Integrators

This section contains reference documentation relevant primarily to system integrators:

  • Implementing Verbotics Weld outlines the process of setting up Verbotics Weld to work with a welding system.

  • Supported Robots details the supported robot makes and feature support.

  • Laser Sensing describes how a laser sensor should be set up to work with Verbotics Weld.

  • Robot Calibration outlines the calibration requirements for calibrating a workcell for use with Verbotics Weld.

  • Helper Functions outlines the various helper functions and the overall logic path used in programs generated with Verbotics Weld.

Work Cell File

Currently there are no facilities for end users or system integrators to create workcell files (.vbmodel files). Please contact Verbotics to obtain pricing to create a customised workcell file, or utilise a sample workcell file for evaluation purposes. Sample workcells can be downloaded from our website.

Installation / Calibration

Programs generated using offline programming require additional calibration steps to minimise any errors between the installed system and the workcell definition in Verbotics Weld. Very small errors can accumulate to create large errors that cannot be resolved using touch sensing and can result in suboptimal performance of the exported programs and/or robot collision.

Please see calibration for more details.

Misalignment of the robot mount can cause error of where external axes are used. For example, a small error of 0.2 degrees in the robot mounting will result in a +/-7mm error for a robot reaching 2m in front compared to reaching behind. We understand that it may be difficult to mount and align a robot with exact accuracy, so our system can compensate for these errors if known. We can also suggest parameter values to use if you would like your robot controller to also take these into account.
