Get a demo Enhanced Virtual CommissioningAdvanced Robot Programming Interactive VR+ All features included in Essentials+ All features included in Professional Enhanced Virtual Commissioning Connect your simulations with a range of physical and virtual vendor-specific controllers to plan, debug and verify your programs with powerful visuals and improve virtual commissioning possibilities. Siemens S7 – PLC Connectivity Siemens S7 PLC Connectivity supports native connectivity to most physical and simulated Siemens PLCs, including older models. This native connection provides faster communication speeds with physical S7-1200 controllers and supports connection to S7- PLCSIM. WinMod and SIMIT WinMod and SIMIT connectivity plugins enable communications with several physical and virtual automation systems. Verify your PLC programs and robot kinematics by connecting with many vendor-specific controllers. SIMIT connectivity opens the door to the complete range of Siemens automation systems including PLCSIM Advanced, PLCSIM, Virtual Controllers, SIMIT UNIT and PLCs. Advanced Robot Programming Quickly program your robots with detailed kinematics and visualize them in simulation for various practical applications like welding, sealing, cutting, painting, material handling etc. Geometrical CAD data for Robot Paths Easily distinguish features of imported CAD files. Our 3D geometry engine analyzes any imported CAD model and provides well-structured data of geometry surfaces, curves, and curve loops. Use the topology API to develop your own robot path planning and teaching tools that take advantage of this feature. Path Statements Quickly teach and simulate paths of positions with robots. Edge and curve selection tools help you pick and edit robot paths with practical applications for robot welding, machine tending, paint, and water jet operations, sealing, and cutting. Paint Process Visualization Visualize the application of paint on surfaces and measure coat thickness, thereby reducing robot teach time and improving motion planning. VRC connectivity for UR and Stäubli The Universal Robot connectivity plugin enables connecting to a Universal Robot controller and running a simulated robot with realistic movements. The Stäubli robot connection add-on supports creating/editing robot program positions and running them with a Stäubli CS8 and CS9 controller to verify program operation and cycle times. Interactive VR Interact with your simulations in Virtual Reality. Collaborate better with your project stakeholders and increase your credibility with immersive presentations and training material. + ALL FEATURES IN Essentials Visual Components Essentials is our core manufacturing simulation product. Design, build, and simulate your factory of the future using ready-made components. Factory Simulation The factory simulation offers all the essential tools to quickly design and set up your manufacturing simulations in an interactive, user-friendly environment and easily export and share your results. Basic Virtual Commissioning Test and validate the functionality of your digital models by connecting the simulations with your control systems. Make sure your production systems are well-integrated and functioning efficiently before physical execution. Basic Robot Programming Quickly teach and program the robots and cobots for your use cases in a virtual environment using offline robot programming (OLP) tools. OLP saves you time and costs of the robot and cobot integration for your applications. Sales Content Creation Create and share impressive sales material of your projects in various standard formats.
