Robot Application Builder
Create Customized Operator Interfaces!
Easy to use
Most will agree that a customized solution is usually superior to a standard solution. This is very true when it comes to operator interfaces on the factory floor. A key advantage of a customized user interface is that the system becomes easier to use. Downtime due to operator mistakes is minimized, and so is the need for training. Robot Application Builder enables robot users to realize the benefits of customized operator interfaces.
Normally robots are delivered with a general user interface, designed with the same set of screens and buttons, independent of the task to solve. However, different processes require different operator interfaces to be truly efficient. A well-designed operator interface presents the appropriate information and functionality at the right time. This is a lot easier to achieve with customized applications, which can be developed close to the end-users and become very well adapted to their specific needs. Thus saving time and minimizing the risk for costly errors.
