CP Robotics was founded in 2015 in Odense, Denmark, and has already generated a great deal of interest in its field. The 2,000-line algorithm makes it possible to program a robot by using a 3D scan from a scanner mounted to the robot. By simply sweeping the robot over the workspace, the CP Robotics software, called ‘Pathfinder’, can analyse the data of the sensor and generate precise robot paths. Most importantly, Pathfinder is easy for the shop floor personnel to program, making it a flexible tool that can be used on even very small production series. The software is particularly useful for milling, grinding and polishing.
