3D-ProSim

Innovative Robot Programming and Process Simulation

In today’s production, robot programming is often still carried out by teach-in or manually guided teach-in. Both methods require a high level of expertise, are time-consuming and can only be carried out directly on the robot while production is at a standstill.

3D-ProSim offers the solution thanks to intelligent offline programming. Based on his process knowledge, the operator determines directly on the 3D model of the part how the tool should impact it. This is done via so-called teach points and the process doesn’t require programming knowledge.  Based on the teach points, 3D-ProSim calculates the optimum processing trajectory, taking into account the feasibility and process time of the program.

The final robot program contains both movement commands for the robot and specifications for the control and use of the tool (e. g. dosing specifications for coating processes).
