KMT Robotic Solutions Introduces CamPro™ Robotic Milling and Offline Programming Software

POSTED 08/11/2008

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Sept. 16, 2007 - KMT Robotic Solutions introduces CamPro™ - new PC-based offline programming software that enables manufacturers to seamlessly convert CAM trimming and milling paths into complete 6-axis robot programs.


“The CamPro solution eases the transition from CNC cutting to robotic trimming,” said Chuck Abrams, KMT Robotic Solutions Inc. technical manager. “It allows manufacturers to make the most of their previous CAM investment dollars because personnel trained on Mastercam®, SURFCAM®, Delcam and other common CAD/CAM tools can automatically use CamPro.”


CamPro offers manufacturers several benefits. It makes robotic milling feasible by managing large files through the robot memory and enabling it to mill solid blocks of foam, wood and REN board. CamPro simulates the robot path offline, allowing programmers to check interference and arm configuration while the actual system is still in production. As a result, CamPro provides manufacturers with an economical way to program a large number of parts.


KMT currently offers two versions of CamPro – one that supports conversion of Mastercam® programs and another that supports any CAM program that can be exported in .apt format. CamPro software is designed for use with KMT’s RoboTrim® robotic routing systems, JetTool® waterjet trimming systems and RoboKnife™ ultrasonic knife trimming systems.


KMT Robotic Solutions was formed in December of 2006 with the union of KMT Cutting Systems in Ronneby, Sweden and Robotic Production Technology in Auburn Hills, Mich.  KMT Robotic Solutions has more than 1500 systems installed around the world and more than 30 years experience developing, designing, building, servicing and supporting robotic automation solutions for manufacturing customers. With locations in Europe, the US and China, KMT is strategically positioned to serve the global market.
