Optimize

Handle singularities, collisions, reach zone limits and redundant axes movements with a dedicated powerful tool: robot axis map

Axes available in robot axis map:

A6 (6th axis), rails, turn table, lead and lean angles.

What is shown on the map:

Out of reach, out of limits, singularities, collisions. Map also shows the toolpath with rapid and work feeds.

Automated:

Just push “Build automatically”. It works in most cases.

Precise control:

Edit any point of the toolpath with simulation preview in real time.

 

Simulate

Full robotic cell simulation. Material removal simulation.
Smooth and high resolution.

Full robotic cell simulation:

Robot, tables, rails, end effector, fences, fixtures, tool magazine and any other imported geometry is used for simulation.

Material removal, additive, painting:

Dedicated simulation models for material removal, additive and painting for result control.

Launch control program

 FANUC Robots offline Programming

ROBOGUIDE is the leading of offline programming product on the market for FANUC robots. The ROBOGUIDE family of process focused software packages allow users to create, program and simulate a robotic work-cell in 3-D without the physical need and expense of a prototype work-cell setup.

FANUC ROBOGUIDE is a robot simulator that simulates both the robot’s motion and application commands, significantly reducing the time it takes to create new motion setups. To ensure minimal impact on production, cells can be designed, tested and modified entirely offline. To save 3-D modelling time, part models can be imported from a PC as CAD data. The robot simulation software’s extensive library also allows users to select and modify parts and dimensions as required. Designed to be intuitive and extremely easy to use, ROBOGUIDE requires very little, if any, training. It is also available with dedicated tools for specific applications.

 

ABB Robots offline Programming

RobotStudio enables the robot programming, training, and optimization to be done on a PC in an office without disturbing production. How does RobotStudio Work? This innovative robotic program is a PC application for modeling, offline programming, and the simulation of robot cells.

Offline programming is the best way to maximize return on investment for robot systems. ABB's simulation and offline programming software, RobotStudio, allows robot programming to be done on a PC in the office without shutting down production, this allows you to perform tasks such as training, programming, and optimization without disturbing the production.

The tool is built on the ABB Virtual Controller, an exact copy of the real software that runs your robots in production. This allows very realistic simulations to be performed, using real robot programs and configuration files identical to those used on the shop floor.

RobotStudio comes with a full package of features and add-ons allowing for perfect offline simulation reducing risks, fastening the start-ups, shortening the changeovers and at the end increasing the productivity.

 

KUKA Robots Offline Programming

KUKA.Sim creates a digital twin and thus an identical image of the subsequent production process. The 3D simulation covers the entire planning process: from the design of the process to the visualization of material flows and bottlenecks to the PLC code. The data are 100 percent consistent, which means that the virtual controller and the real controller work with exactly the same data. In this way, KUKA.Sim creates the basis for virtual commissioning, so that new production lines can already be tested and optimized in advance.

 

YASKAWA MOTOMAN Robots Offline Programming

MotoSim EG-VRC

MotoSim EG-VRC (Enhanced Graphics Virtual Robot Controller) is designed for accurate offline programming of complex systems. With the virtual robot controller function, simulation software can be used for:

 

    - Optimizing robot and equipment placement

    - Reach modeling

    - Accurate cycle calculations

    - Automatic path generation

    - Collision detection

    - System configuration

    - Condition file editing

    - Functional Safety Unit (FSU) configuration

    - Remote access to real robot controller

The virtualized controller also allows the simulation software to operate and display a programming pendant interface identical to the real controller. The VRC

completely simulates the Motoman® robot controller software.
