Hypertherm Releases Robotmaster 7.4, Major Update

Hypertherm, Hanover, New Hampshire, a manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, has announced the release of Robotmaster Version 7.4. This newly released offline robot programming software version contains enhancements designed to further simplify robotic programming, including:

  • Major enhancements to Remote Tool Center Point (RTCP) that allow for an improved end user experience and exploit the full capabilities of any robotic cell.
  • Additions to the surface paths with added strategies and advanced tools for applications such as polishing, grinding, deburring and more. The surface paths are designed to tie-in perfectly with the enhancements to RTCP or traditional configurations for robotic finishing.
  • Faster processing times when saving, loading and calculating jobs, plus improved real time feedback during simulation for faster part programming times.
  • Enhancement to the Robotmaster Interactive Simulation Environment (RISE), delivering a more realistic simulation for external axes, along with tools to better control motion between the robot and external axes.

Garen Cakmak, leader of Hypertherm’s Robotic Software team, stated that with Robotmaster V7.4, Hypertherm has responded to its customer base with features and enhancements that it believes take a big step forward. Take the RTCP improvements as an example. These will allow users to realize more value from their robotic cell investment.

Building upon the redesigned V7 architecture, first introduced in 2018, Robotmaster uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality to make robotic programming easy and intuitive for everyone, even first-time users. The software is used by a wide range of industries to program robots for tasks that include surfacing, 3D milling, additive manufacturing, welding, painting and more.
