Introduction to SprutCAM
Brief and to the point
General information
Geometrical model preparation
Environment of 2D geometrical SprutCAM can be used to program industrial robots for cutting, milling,
constructions painting, welding and other applications. The programming process of an
Creating machining technology industrial robot is basically the same as one of a conventional milling
Feature based machining machine, except the robot usually has 6 degrees of freedom (versus 5
Mill machining degrees of freedom required to position a cutter relative to a workpiece)
Lathe machining plus optionally additional degrees of freedom of various types of
workpiece positioners (like rotary tables) and robot positioners (like rails).
Mill-turn Machining
Therefore, when used with a robot SprutCAM operations offer additional
Machining on cutting machines set of parameters to control those excessive degrees of freedom (DOFs).
Knife cutting
In addition to excessive degrees of freedom a robot can reach the desired

position of the tool relative to the workpiece in several different states.

In this chapter the following robot programming features are covered:

Robot scheme selection, tool and workpiece coordinate system setup;
Programming of the robot's 6th axis;
Programming of rails;
Programming the tilting rotary table;
Avoiding out-of-reach zones and singularities;
Programming robot's transitions.
The feature is available in the following SprutCAM configurations:
