ABB Robotics' Simplified Robot Programming (SRP) combines the skill and craftsmanship of hand painting with motion tracking technology that recreate the human painter's motions exactly. Courtesy: ABB RoboticsABB Robotics’ Simplified Robot Programming (SRP) is designed to cut programming time from hours to minutes to create professional robotic paint programs easily. The technology combines the skill and craftsmanship of hand painting with motion tracking technology and software to automatically create robot programs for industrial paint applications that recreate the human painter’s motions exactly.

Using the ABB SRP Teach Handle, which resembles a traditional spray gun, the user squeezes the trigger to enable the paint commands and start the motion recording. Although the complicated calculations are handled by the software and hardware to create the program, all automatically generated code is fully editable in ABB RobView. This includes any changes to speed, accuracy, and fluidness of motion. ABB RobView is a proprietary PC‐based commissioning and production tool, which supports ABB robot systems. The software package includes an array of functions, which allow users to operate and service one or more paint robots.
