3D simulation program for robot control

13 May 2018

FANUC UK has launched an upgraded version of its intelligent 3D simulation software for robot motion control.    

ROBOGUIDE Version 9 can be used for pre-sale concept simulations, right through to a full offline programming package for use on the shop floor. It is said to be suitable for use by both experienced and new robot users, and incorporates a more intuitive user interface, the most up-to-date virtual controllers, and a drag-and-drop function for the addition of robots and components within a work cell layout.

ROBOGUIDE allows operators to design, test and modify robotic systems through the use of a fully-simulated, 3D, CAD environment. The simulations, which can be conducted offline, provide accurate robot motion and cycle times when designing and verifying a system. The finalised program can then be downloaded to the robot.

Additional plug-ins are available for the calculation of reducer lifetimes, motor duties and power consumption, while plug-ins monitoring possible collisions and enforced safety parameters, particularly for collaborative robots, come as standard.
