Automatically generate robot programs from existing CAD models to
reduce installation and commissioning time
Complete robot simulation capability allows system design verification
before purchasing hardware
Extract robot operation parameters from existing CAD data to avoid
complex manual teaching
MELFA-Works provides extensive help and
support. It also facilitates offline development and testing of robot programs that
will be used later in real applications.
Production engineering needs to be fast
and accurate. Few modern production
facilities offer the chance for lengthy iterative R&D. This mandate seems mutually
exclusive to complex robotics, with its
opportunities for collisions, sub-optimal
travel paths and other challenges.
MELFA-Works addresses this with a virtual
engineering workbench which allows you
to test and prove production environments
using existing CAD data. Hence any design
issues can be identified and resolved
quickly before real hardware is ever purchased.
Simulation of industrial robots with the SolidWorks® user interface
In today’s global economy, competition
can come from anywhere in the world.
Established manufacturing methods need
constant review. Robotics have made key
contributions to quality and productivity,
but implementing a robotic cell can be
costly and time consuming.
Together, MELFA-Works and the SolidWorks®
platform can extend an existing robot simulation system with new capabilities and
supplementary functions.
Of course programs generated during simulation can be used directly or edited for
deployment on robots with similar tasks,
even multitasking modes can be simulated
in the software’s "task slot manager".
In addition, programs can be tested
step-by-step or by direct execution, including observance of user defined breakpoints. Robot simulations can even be used
in Jog mode.
The complete engineering environment
also means additional axes can also be simulated along with I/O operation. Furthermore, the complete simulation (including
movement paths) can be saved as an AVI
video file for reference later on.
Calibration tool
쐽 Easy and efficient: MELFA-Vision
The MELFA-Vision software enables easy
setup and programming using the MELFA
Basic IV robot language. Standard job programs supporting various types of operations are provided. Using these programs,
even a first-time user can simply operate
vision sensor systems.
An easy calibration function is integrated
as well as a log function that allows the user
to check sensor images on a personal computer.
Network vision templates (job library) support pattern matching and blob functions,
ready to use.
The enhanced high speed image processing function can detect moving parts,
inlcuding those rotated 360 degrees.
MELFA-Works is complemented by MELFAVision. This software allows users to quickly
and easily set-up and customize networked
vision systems in-conjunction with robotic
operation.
MELFA-Works from Mitsubishi Electric is an
add-on tool for the widely popular
SolidWorks® 3D CAD software package.
This powerful combination of software
allows users to create and develop teaching position data and robotic programming sequences in a virtual world, i.e.
without the need of hardware.
MELFA-Works significantly reduces the
engineering time and overheads involved
in both robot teaching and operation
through a powerful software toolbox. For
example, the loading and organizing of
parts data for external units can be made in
the way that suits each user's unique
requirements. Other highlights include the
use of Automated Tool Changers (ATCs)
generated by SolidWorks® to manage the
installation of hand grippers.
MELFA-Works is able to precisely simulate
and determine system cycle times. Hence,
users can test all parts of their program
under real-time conditions, allowing quick
and easy system optimization.
The MELFA-Vision software is the only tool
needed to easily and quickly customize
vision applications.
Vision solutions allow robot users the
chance to either visually inspect production parts against predefined templates or
to manage production parts delivered in a
random presentation.
Once items are checked and oriented
against an image "mask" the robot can then
perform its assigned tasks.
Screen shot of reference point setting
MELFA-Vision allows data from up to seven
networked vision sensors to be shared
between three robots, reducing setup
times and hardware costs as well as producing more compact engineering environments.
