Has anyone experience with Robot Studio?
I have on offer for robot studio licenses.
Mainly I need the Robot Studio lincense and a Cad pack for (Solid Edge).
This what I definitely need
This is aprroximately €2000 (per year).
There is also an Arc welding package, do you know, what this Arc welding package contains?
Mainly I'd use Robot studio for simulations of Arc welding cells (now we have one cell, and we're planning to buy another one), besides of other programming funcions that are only available with Robot studio.
I would like to "reduce" the price, because it would be easier to convince my boss we need this software, and we should buy it, if the price is lower...
I'd not like to make offline programs, so I think the Arc welding package it not really necessary for my application.
I have welding torches in 3D format (or I can get it from the power source manufacturer), according to my experience (gained in RoboDK trial version), I can import these torches into the Robot Studio, and handle it as a tool...
So after that, I can already simulate any movement and welding process without the welding package.
Am I right?
Of course, in the simulation, it wold be only a movement, not welding...
The welding package is further €1400 (per year).
Usually the important thing is for me to determine the real cycle time, when I simulate a process.
It was partially falied with RoboDK...
It was surely better with the ABB's own software.
Is it possible to handle external I/O signals in a Robot studio simulation?
For example external PLC signals of a welding fixture (sensors, pneumatic actuators etc).
Do anybody has experience with this?
I know, it is possible in Siemens's Process simulate, but it's much more expensive than Robot studio...
This function would not be essential for me, but it is good to know, what are the possibilities in the future?
