Robot Calibration

Robot calibration is the process of identifying the real geometrical parameters in the kinematic structure of a robot, such as the relative position of joint links in the robot.

Robot calibration improves the accuracy of robots programmed offline (Offline Programming).

With RoboDK you can accomplish robot calibration in less than 20 minutes and achieve a position accuracy of 0.200 mm. Once a robot has been calibrated you can generate accurate robot programs offline using RoboDK's simulation and offline programming tools.
