What is Fanuc Roboguide V6.40 Rev E 64 Bit and Why You Need It
Fanuc Roboguide V6.40 Rev E 64 Bit is a powerful and versatile robot simulation software that allows you to create, program and simulate a robotic workcell in 3D without the physical need and expense of a prototype workcell setup. It is the leading of offline programming robot simulation software on the market for Fanuc robots[^1^].
With Fanuc Roboguide V6.40 Rev E 64 Bit, you can reduce risk by enabling visualization of single and multi-robot workcell layouts before actual installation. You can also save time and money by testing and debugging your robot programs offline. You can also optimize your robot performance and productivity by using various tools and features included in the software.
Fanuc Roboguide V6.40 Rev E 64 Bit includes a wide range of process-focused robot simulation software packages that cater to different applications and industries. Some of them are:
HandlingPRO: for material handling applications such as load/unload, packaging, assembly and material removal[^1^].
PaintPRO: for robotic painting process development and optimization[^1^].
PalletPRO and PalletTool: for palletizing applications with hundreds of unit load pallet configurations[^1^].
WeldPRO: for robotic arc welding process simulation and programming[^1^].
If you are looking for a reliable, efficient and user-friendly robot simulation software that can help you with your robotic workcell design, programming and simulation, you should consider Fanuc Roboguide V6.40 Rev E 64 Bit. You can download it from the official website of Fanuc America[^1^] or from other trusted sources[^2^] [^3^] [^4^].
In this article, we will show you some examples of how to use Fanuc Roboguide V6.40 Rev E 64 Bit for different robot simulation scenarios. We will assume that you have already installed the software and have a valid license key.
Example 1: Creating a Simple Robot Workcell with HandlingPRO
In this example, we will create a simple robot workcell with a single Fanuc robot and a conveyor belt. The robot will pick up parts from the conveyor belt and place them on a pallet. We will use HandlingPRO to create the workcell layout, program the robot motion and simulate the process.
Step 1: Launch Fanuc Roboguide V6.40 Rev E 64 Bit and select HandlingPRO from the main menu.
Step 2: In the HandlingPRO window, click on File > New to create a new project. Give your project a name and a location and click OK.
Step 3: In the Workcell Editor window, click on the Robot tab and select a Fanuc robot model from the list. For this example, we will use a R-2000iC/165F robot. Drag and drop the robot icon onto the workcell area.
Step 4: Click on the Conveyor tab and select a conveyor model from the list. For this example, we will use a CB-1000 conveyor. Drag and drop the conveyor icon onto the workcell area and position it next to the robot.
Step 5: Click on the Pallet tab and select a pallet model from the list. For this example, we will use a P-1000 pallet. Drag and drop the pallet icon onto the workcell area and position it behind the robot.
Step 6: Click on the Part tab and select a part model from the list. For this example, we will use a C-1000 part. Drag and drop the part icon onto the conveyor belt.
Step 7: Click on the Tool tab and select a tool model from the list. For this example, we will use a T-1000 tool. Drag and drop the tool icon onto the robot flange.
Step 8: Click on the View tab and adjust the view angle and zoom level of your workcell. You can also use the mouse to rotate, pan and zoom your workcell.
Step 9: Click on the Save button to save your workcell layout. ec8f644aee
