More than robots
- Our range of control units and software for integration, simulation and virtual commissioning is very ambitious. These are solutions that simplify, streamline and increase the security of the applications, says Micael Amanduson. Among other things, KUKA will demonstrate the KUKA.AppTech concept at the fair. A software that is built up in modules and that uses predefined structures and sequences.
It provides a substantial simplification which means that advanced engineering skills are no longer required to program at a high level. The simulation program KUKA.Sim is also displayed in the stand, a software that greatly facilitates a system integrator. When a robot cell is to be built, it is possible, among other things, to create a digital twin where it is also possible to carry out tests and identify any weaknesses directly in an ordinary laptop. The program can take in a model of the environment where robots and other equipment will work and also place everything in the right scale.
KUKA.Sim also opens up the possibility of carrying out a Factory Acceptance Test already in the computer environment.
- After that, it is possible to connect the computer-generated environment directly with a PLC, robot and central HMI even before anything is actually built.
