Programming robots easier than ever before
OTC DAIHEN has introduced an iPad based teaching software called Photo Teach that leverages new LiDAR technology to streamline robot programming, making it more efficient and convenient. LiDAR, short for Light Detection and Ranging, is a popular method for detecting the environment by using pulsed laser light to identify and categorize objects.
With Photo Teach, programming the robot is as simple as following steps. First, the LiDAR system creates an image from the workpiece. Next, the user can select the starting and end point of the welding path. The software will automatically create the program and communicates it to the welding robot for execution.
