Hypertherm’s New Robotmaster Update Allows for Faster Programming of Robots 

Hypertherm Inc. (Hanover, NH) has announced an update to its Robotmaster® software, which is used for offline programming of robots.

Posted: October 14, 2021

The version 7.5 update focuses on accelerating and simplifying the programming process and includes new features for a variety of robotic applications.

Hypertherm said the software’s key highlights include:

  • New material removal simulation capabilities so users can visually see what the material removal process will look like. This can help users forecast whether a collision between the robotic arm and stock material could occur in real life.
  • Improvements to the overall user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) for easier and faster programming. Users will experience an improved tab system menu design, a cleaner interface, and other improvements for an overall 50 percent reduction in programming time.
  • Streamlined programming using two new modes: Operation-focused and Orientation helper. Operation-focused consolidates the tools and workflows needed for an error-free program onto one window. Orientation helper combines axis configuration and optimized automatic path planning, so it can provide live feedback on the feasibility of a planned operation, making it well-suited for task experts with no robotics experience.
  • Enhanced CAM functionality to manage and store operation parameters in an optimized manner, resulting in a smoother programming experience.
  • Formalized and enhanced support for macros to manage and validate robot behavior outside of the trajectory scope. A new feature called Macro manager ensures an error-free and collision-free path between operations and the executed external macro.
  • New simplified processor framework allows users to make updates with minimal training and no coding experience.
