Traditionally the maximum speed and acceleration of the robot movements is designed for the maximum load-bearing capacity and the greatest possible strokes, but few applications fully exploit this spectrum. This is exactly where Engel comes in with multidynamic. When loads are lower and strokes shorter, Engel viper robots equipped with multidynamic move faster, thus enabling shorter cycle times.
The software belongs to the standard range of all Engel viper robots. It automatically controls the speed and acceleration as a function of the load, thus combining the shortest possible cycle times with the best possible precision, energy efficiency and service life of the mechanical components. The plant operator does not need to manually optimise the robot speed, a fact which accelerates the production process start-up.
Reduce handling times by a further 10 to 30 percentWhat is new is that multidynamic calculates and automatically sets the optimum speed not only for the linear movements but also for the movements on the servomotor-driven rotary axes. The software determines the maximum allowable dynamics from the weight handled and the gravity distance from the rotary axes. Through this additional optimisation, the handling time can be reduced by a further 10 to 30 percent in rotation-intensive applications.
If the system detects an overload due to excessive handling weight or an increased distance to the centre of gravity, it outputs a warning message for the system operator and thus actively contributes to preventing excessive wear on the mechanically-driven components, or even system failure.
The multidynamic software helps Engel viper robots to adapt the speed and acceleration of their movements to the current load and thus achieve superior dynamics.
