Teaching simplification


PTP control, such as in material handling, is extremely easy with the MUJIN Controller

In the PTP control used for robotic transport and assembly, there is a relatively high number of free interpolating motions, and there are many cases where teaching is difficult. With the MUJIN Controller TeachWorker, the work the customer wants is realized with the highest efficiency and minimum teaching work.

Feature 1 All robots can be used - Unified robot operation -

Conventional methods - Problems


  • It is necessary to learn new operation methods for each robot.
  • Human resources for handling robots are limited.
  • Mistakes increase.
Robots can’t be chosen freely and training is a major issue

MUJIN system - Solutions


  • MUJIN unifies the operation methods of all robots.
  • Simple connection is possible by just selecting a robot manufacturer.
  • Easy to learn and young workers can improve quickly.
  • Maintenance methods are also unified, and mistakes are drastically reduced.
Unify robot control within the company

Feature 2 Minimization of teaching points - World-first automatic generation of robotic motion -

Conventional methods - Problems


  • While avoiding robot interference and singular points, waypoints need to be taught one by one.
  • Experience is needed for manual avoidance of singular points and joint limits.

MUJIN system - Solutions


  • A bare minimum of teaching points is sufficient.
  • With the world’s first automatic interference avoidance function, most robot movements are automatically generated.
  • A smooth motion is realized which is impossible to achieve with teaching.

Feature 3 Minimize takt time - Robot motion optimization function -

Conventional methods - Problems


  • Considerable experience is necessary for improving the operational efficiency of robots.
  • Takt time will vary greatly depending on the teacher.
  • Since know-how is basically the expertise of an individual, it will not be left with the company.

MUJIN system - Solutions


  • MUJIN computes all the operations at high speed and performs optimization.
  • Whoever the operator may be, the optimum operation is calculated in one run.
  • It does not rely on individual’s expertise, and know-how accumulates in the company.

Feature 4 Return to the origin from any position - Generate automatic recovery operations -

Conventional methods - Problems


  • If a return to the origin is made without forethought, and there is a collision which causes an error, recovery cannot be easily performed by an on-site worker.
  • In order to make a safe return to the origin, a return program needs to be written for each step.
Return to the origin from within the apparatus is extremely dangerous

MUJIN system - Solutions


  • Wherever the location, a safe return to the origin is possible without collisions.
  • Since there is no need to write a return program, considerable programming time is saved.
  • Because anyone can easily perform the recovery, downtime can be minimized for the facility.
Return to the origin from any location with 1 button

Feature 5 Online/Offline simulator included as standard

Conventional methods - Problems


  • The simulator works only with a separately purchased housing.
  • Robot motion generation is not possible.
  • As it is different from using the actual machine, only the approximate cycle time is known.

MUJIN system - Solutions


  • Both the online and offline simulator are standard equipment.
  • With automatic robot motion generation, the optimum route is computed in one run.
  • Cycle times can be simulated at any time.

Feature 6 Remote and centralized management - Remote maintenance -

Conventional methods - Problems


  • When a problem occurs, on-site workers cannot perform recovery.
  • It takes time until a specialist engineer arrives.

MUJIN system - Solutions


  • It is possible to monitor the robot from anywhere using the remote maintenance function, which is included as standard.
  • There is no need to locate dedicated engineers at each site, and support is concentrated in one place.
