In particular, the R86TB features 3D visualisation capabilities to help machine builders, system integrators and end users plan, set up and program robotic tasks in an environment that mimics the physical settings. This function is complemented by programming support capabilities, parameter inputting and programming interfaces, as well as a dedicated section for diagnostics. All these are based on Mitsubishi Electric’s robot engineering software RT Toolbox3, simplifying user adoption and use of these platforms while ensuring consistency.
In addition to these functions, the R86TB high-performance teaching box also supports quick and early troubleshooting without the need for a computer. As a result, it can optimize the uptime and performance of automated applications.
Oliver Giertz, Strategic Product Manager Servo/Motion/Robotics EMEA at Mitsubishi Electric Europe, comments: “We are excited to release this new teaching box and drive the implementation of highly effective robotic setups even further forward. The R86TB is designed as an ideal interface to easily interact with MELFA robots across their entire service life and will greatly help customers take full advantage of the capabilities of these machines.”
