Almacam Weld, CAD/CAM software for robotized welding

Offline programming software for arc-welding robots.

Almacam Weld, dedicated to the offline programming of arc-welding robots, allows you to optimize the utilization rate of your welding robots resulting in increased flexibility and improved productivity. A precursor over the past 20 years, Almacam Weld is now the leading solution in the field of arc-welding robot offline programming.

Main advantages and benefits

Much faster than programming by teaching.

Improved productivity thanks to offline programming (reduction of robot idle periods and reduction of programming costs).

Possibility to immediately start programming after creating the virtual models of assemblies to weld.

Automatic search for collision-free robot trajectories.

Full and realistic simulation with the complete cell which guarantees the reliability of both the cell design and cell production.

Improved welding quality thanks to the integration and repeatability of all the welding parameters (torch angles, stick out, etc.).

Reduction of programming cycle for similar parts thanks to the automatic transfer of welding programs.

Management of shifting of trajectories via sensing of wire and nozzle, joint follow-up, laser camera, etc.

Synchronization between several robots and positioners.

Improved working conditions and increased safety.

Management of a multi-brand set of robots using a single solution.

Product overview

Through a graphic interface, Almacam Weld allows you to program a robot from a virtual scene and simulate its movements. The assemblies to weld, together with the tooling, are imported from a 3D CAD system.

Almacam Weld combines welder know-how together with programming and simulation tools that allow you to create programs in optimal conditions, and even to validate the design of a tooling or to study a cell set-up. Thanks to Almacam Weld you can generate programs that will require no further touch-ups in the workshop.

A post-processor specifically adapted to the controller generates the programs prepared with Almacam Weld in all the robot languages. The cell calibration and customization of the post-processor make it possible to integrate all the robot self-correction functions (shifting of trajectories via sensing or joint follow-up, laser camera, etc.) Almacam Weld also manages multi-robot cells.

Testimonial

“For us, programming by teaching is not professional. The cell is just a tool, the intelligence is in the program, and for that you need good software. Alma helped us develop a simple methodology to program the twin robots, which in principle is not at all easy, and their experience with sensing was also extremely valuable for us. We felt the Alma software was very simple to understand and use. And we quickly realized that when it came to customer service, Alma was flexible, open and always available.”
