Software ARPP Ortis

Software ARPP®

The heart of ORTIS is our ARPP® software that, being able to completely simulate all the production steps in only one product, allows you to:

  • Generate CAM tool paths on geometries coming from digitalization and external CAD systems;
  • Use specific CAM operations for the orthopaedic field;
  • Watch the 3D motion of the robot inside its cell with collision detection;
  • Simulate the 3D material removal and automatically generate the next CAM tool paths only on the material left;
  • Create automatic procedures for the different type of models to be produced.
These characteristics, combined with the intuitive graphical interface and the extreme easy of use CAM operations integrated in ARPP®, determine unprecedented productivity.Moreover, the technician can see, with calm and quiet on his/her computer, each step of milling and cutting operations before sending the program to the robot; in this way it’s possible to avoid problems and oversights, always possible.

The great advantage is that ARPP® allows to integrate CAM capabilities (ARPPCAM) in order to generate directly the tool path to be sent to the robot.

TURNING OPERATION

Turning is a milling operation that allows to rough and/or finish models like corsets, TLSO, AK & Bk sockets or helmets. With this operation ARPP® generates a spiral tool path that combines the coordinated movements of both robot and turntable. Contrary to the simple spiral path generated on the old 3axes carver, the turning milling operation allows to have a very good resolution in the whole model including the top part like the shoulders and the helmet.

BENT CYLINDER

This particular operation, designed for “L” shapes, allows to produce AFOs and KAFOs in one piece with an incredible level of details. ARPP® exploits the flexibility and mobility of the robot, producing a very complex tool path that wraps up the foot shape.

TRAJECTORY

With few clicks on the 3D model, you can define a full 5-axis profiling and see the robot moving along the defined path: it is useful for cutting lines on thermoplastic covers.

NEGATIVE SHAPES

ARPP® presents many milling operations dedicated to the production of the negative shapes (seating systems, cushion and mattresses in soft foam). By using the FreeShape milling, it is now very easy to generate a 5-axis tool path on a complex surface full of undercuts.

3-AXIS and 5-AXIS MILLING

With ARPP® it is also possible to generate simple 3-axis tool paths, that could be is useful for roughing process or milling simple shapes, like insoles or facial masks.

PARAMETRIC WORKPIECE

The redesigned “create workpiece model” dialog, allows to modify the model of the blank.

AUTOMATIC MILLING VOLUME RESIZE

Tailoring a template will be quicker than ever before. With a simple click is now possible to resize the volume dedicated to each milling operation.

PLAYLIST

It is possible to send multiple sequence of programs to the robot; it becomes very useful for those configurations of ORTIS that have more than one working placement (ie. turning table +fixed table) and moreover with the automatic feeding line.

ADVANCED CAM SOFTWARE

ARPP® allows to manage the milling parameters combining different strategies on different model areas. For example it is possible to save time by milling faster where you don’t need details, or to add special operations for making holes, slots, etc or even to add extra milling operations to refine details only in certain areas (like undercuts).

MATERIAL REMOVAL SIMULATION

After each CAM tool path you can see the material that is left, in order to generate the next operations only where they are needed. It’s very useful for seating systems and for more complex models, as standing shell braces, where it is very difficult to imagine areas that still need to be worked.
