Plan robotic cells more easily with KUKA.Sim 4.0 simulation software
Automation specialist KUKA presents the new version of its smart simulation software: KUKA.Sim 4.0 With KUKA.Sim 4.0, details and sequences of robot applications can be realistically simulated even before start-up and then transferred 100 percent to the real controller.
Greater planning reliability due to a vast range of options
Besides importing CAD data, the new version enables easy offline programming of the robot and fast cycle time analysis. In addition, safety spaces can be configured graphically in 3D and the stopping behavior of the robots can be simulated. “The total area required for the cell can thus be significantly reduced during planning,” says KUKA portfolio manager Roland Ritter.
KUKA.Sim 4.0 facilitates the planning of robot applications in many industries: from consumer goods to electronics and automotive – particularly for component suppliers. The new KUKA Robot Language (KRL) editor provides two user views for programming the robot: one for experts and one for beginners. A visual program tree makes programming possible even without KRL knowledge, for example. Users benefit from a new simplicity. The 100-percent data consistency also ensures that the virtual controller and the real controller work with the same data. The software now also supports the new KR SCARA and KR DELTA robots from KUKA.
