Industrial programming ease
Broshuis has a high product variety, which used to be a problem with robotic welding. "The smaller the quantities, the more likely we weld by hand," says John Okken, Improvement Engineer and robot programmer at Broshuis, "but now we are trying to push that limit." ArcNC for Panasonic automates many steps in the programming process, such as detecting weld seams. With this, Broshuis experiences even more than just the benefits of robotic welding: "It is a lot faster to program, that is the real gain. Most of the hours I used to spend on DTPS (Desktop Programming and Simulation Software) have been taken away."
