thanks for a good forum.
I often see auctions selling older robots of models 1400, 2400, 4400, 6400, 6600 with different control systems such as: M97A, M98A, M98, and rarely but also M2000 & M2008,
I have understood that they are; S4, S4c and S4C + control systems.
I know that it is possible to program the robot with teachpedent for simpler tasks, but what do I do if I want to use the robot for milling 2D / 3D models? how do I go from 2D / 3D cad file to cad/cam to rapid and get it made?
The free version of robot studio only uses IRC5 and a IRC5 controller is not cheap .. I can program simpler things in IRC5.
how would you do that? is there any third party sortware that you all work with?
I am now looking at IRB1400 with M97A or IRB2400L with M98A
or what controller should i buy?
with kind regards Claes
