The centerpiece of SBA – Pro-Fit Software
Fully proven and matured to perfection, the control program – called pro-FIT – is the centerpiece of the machine. It consists of several overlapping modules.
The first of these is the clerical processing module, which prepares the production operation. This module defines the position of each of the parts for attachment, and specifies the welds etc. – in short: everything needed in connection with the production operation.
Module Two is the control station. This is where the work is divided up efficiently between the plant control system and the robots. This module continually gathers data and passes it on to the appropriate locations, and regulates how the robots interoperate.
The third module is an extensive databank. It contains a huge library of 'collected works' about assembling steel members, and all the parameters used in production. These are the cornerstones needed for producing many very different workpieces: machine parameters, welding parameters, approach strategies for the various robots, and so on.
