- First to integrate new Multisubmit function into MC6 control
- Simultaneous operation of multiple peripheral processes
- What is Multisubmit?
KraussMaffei is the first injection molding machine provider on the market to integrate the new Multisubmit control function into the MC6 operating concept of its industrial robots. Starting in January 2015, the new programming function, in conjunction with KUKA KR C4 Version 8.3 (Win 7), is available in the KraussMaffei control system. This enables the central control system to carry out multiple peripheral processes simultaneously.
Central system control via handheld terminal of the robot
With the new programming function (Multisubmit), KraussMaffei has expanded its own ProgTechX command library. The diagnostic and pneumatic functions, as well as variable monitoring, are displayed via the KraussMaffei MC6 VisuX visualization. Central system control, programming and operation can be carried out via the handheld terminal of the robot. In addition, the complex integration of an additional PLC (programmable logic controller) is omitted in a wide range of applications.
Expertise for programming additional PLC is no longer required
Furthermore, the amount of training effort required for machine operators is decreasing. Expertise for programming an additional PLC is no longer required. The handheld terminal of the robot with KraussMaffei MC6 VisuX visualization, combined with the ProgTechX command library, form the central programming and operating element here. A product change or system expansion, for instance, can be carried out with ease.
What is Multisubmit
A submit interpreter is a KRL program (KUKA Robot Language) that runs parallel to the robot program. Until now, there was just one submit interpreter (Singlesubmit) in the robot control system. With the release of the new KUKA KR C4 Version 8.3 (Win7), seven independently operating subinterpreters were added to this function (Multisubmit). The main application of Multisubmit is the activation of external, peripheral components operating simultaneously, such as conveyor belts with separators, assembly stations and drawer systems and magazines.
