OCTOPUZ Inc. Posted 07/29/2015
unicam, one of Germany’s leading CAD/CAM solutions providers, has teamed up with In-House Solutions to offer OCTOPUZ offline robot programming software to customers in Europe.
The company has been working in the field of CAD/CAM robotics since 2009, and is excited to demonstrate how OCTOPUZ can benefit their clients. To best highlight the benefits of incorporating the innovative software into a manufacturing environment, unicam constructed a robot demonstration cell that provides an up close and personal look at its many attributes.
"OCTOPUZ marks a revolution in the use of robots in the manufacturing industry. The program is built on a world-leading piece of software which has been on the market for 15 years," said Johannes Krebs, managing director of unicam. "In addition to making it the ideal solution for any industry that uses robotic manufacturing technology, the program's versatility allows it to be adapted to each client's individual requirements.”
OCTOPUZ is an intelligent, CAD-based offline robot programming and simulation software solution suitable for any path-sensitive application. It can be utilized in a wide range of applications, making it unique on the market. Operators can use it to simulate all cell components and multiple robots offline at the same time.
The software provides optimized external axis management and indicates reach limitations while avoiding singularity. Users benefit from optimal efficiency when they add OCTOPUZ to their manufacturing environments. Its extensive features are particularly suited to fabrication, edge following, material removal, simulation and additive applications.
“No other software makes such complex applications so simple. It's almost too good to be true and we're more than happy for our clients to come and see the impressive software at work for themselves,” Krebs added.
