SIMATIC Robot Integrator: simple integration and programming of robots from a wide range of manufacturers

More and more sectors are using industrial robots. Integrating them requires knowledge of specific robot programming tools, which is not always available within the company.

Buying in such knowledge from external specialists is time-consuming – and expensive. The SIMATIC Robot Integrator app makes robotics easily accessible to every machine manufacturer. Familiarity with the TIA Portal is all that is needed to integrate robots. That saves engineering costs. And if robots from different manufacturers are to be deployed, users only have to replace the specific libraries in the TIA Portal.

The advantages

Reap the benefits of robots in a quick and easy process

Achieve more while reducing the amount of engineering and operational complexity: SIMATIC Robot Integrator is a ready-to-use solution that enables the integration of robots from a wide range of manufacturers without external assistance.

Robot integration in the TIA Portal allows you to get started straightaway. Once the robot has been configured, download our application examples. These will then control the robot straightaway thanks to their ready-to-use functionality. You can create and run robot paths on the HMI itself – whoever your robot was manufactured by.

SIMATIC Robot Integrator reduces complexity in the engineering and commissioning of robots. Machine efficiency improves – along with profitability.

Use Case

Efficient engineering of kinematics with SIMATIC Robot Integrator

Filling and sealing systems from Zellwag Pharmtech AG are in great demand across the globe in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. To ensure efficient engineering of the systems, Zellwag turned to Siemens. The main protagonists are the TIA Portal and the SIMATIC S7-1500 Technology CPU (T-CPU).
Thanks to the app, we achieved a 30% time-saving in the programming of the first bundle of bottles.

Ready-to-use without specialist know-how

Robots have their own controller, on which the control program is generally run. They therefore have to be programmed with a separate engineering tool and require their own HMI panel.

 

Our ready-to-use solution left Zellwag with practically no programming to do for their robots: "We achieved a 30% time-saving in the programming of the first bundle of bottles. Each subsequent package which we assign to the system is now being processed twice as fast as before," says Ahmad Asraf, the team leader for automation. Today Zellwag fills 2,200 syringes per hour, 350 more than before.

 

The system is operated via the HMI touch panel. The target coordinates can be approached, taught and combined into a motion path on the panel itself. Ahmad Asraf: "We adopted the HMI from Siemens unchanged. It has worked without a hitch from the outset."

 

And development continues: "We are working on our own robot library for the TIA Portal. This will make integrating robots even easier," says Tobias Fengel, Marketing Manager for Electronics & Robotics at Siemens.
