"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.
