DENSO’s WINCAPS III offline programming software saves users valuable development time by allowing them to program a robot on an offline computer without the robot having to be in operation.
A 3-D simulation feature conveniently enables layout of the automation workcell in a virtual environment. CAD drawings can be imported in standard VRML and DirectX formats, and variables can easily be input or changed. Users can verify reach, determine obstacle clearances, detect collisions, troubleshoot and debug programs, and determine cycle time.
The software also allows remote monitoring of workcell operations via realtime I/O status indicators and detailed control logs. A panel design feature allows customization of the robot controller’s teaching-pendant display.
