Robotic simulation software
By Alison Dunn
Siemens PLM Software has introduced RobotExpert software, a new, intuitive, easy-to-deploy robotic simulation and programming solution for small- and medium-size manufacturers designed to help minimize downtime and increase throughput for shop floor robots. RobotExpert enables the design, simulation, optimization and offline programming of robotic applications to maximize the speed, flexibility and operation of automated systems. Featuring an intuitive 3D environment, the software combines the simplicity to optimize robotic paths and improve cycle times with the power to simulate virtual mockups of complete manufacturing cells and systems. RobotExpert can be used to generate the most suitable combination of equipment to meet specific manufacturing needs, supporting faster product introduction as well as early evaluation of manufacturing times, costs and project investments.
