Manufacturing is using robots more and more to make things better and do hard tasks automatically. Normally, people teach robots how to move by showing them certain points to follow. This works well when robots always do the same thing over and over until they need a new path. But when we want robots to move in different ways for each item, we need a smarter way.
This smarter way is called “parametric approach.” It uses computer design to make rules that tell robots how to move. This helps us plan, analyze, and make things with robots. With this approach, we connect how things are designed and engineered to how robots move. If we change the design, the robot knows how to move differently. This way, we can know early on if changes in the design will work for making things with the robot.
Also, using this smart way to control robots lets us use computers to find better and faster ways to make things. We can teach the computer to improve how robots work, almost like how living things adapt and get better at things.
The KUKA | prc Parametric Robot Control is a tool that helps people from design, engineering, and manufacturing teams use this smart way to control robots. It makes it easier to make unique programs for robots and connect design to making things.
