Tell us about your company.

Headquartered in Waterloo, Ontario, OCTOPUZ Inc.  provides offline robot programming and simulation software for businesses of all sizes, from small shops to global corporations. Our focus is to provide a robotic software solution that not only enables companies to reach a higher level of efficiency with their processes but that also opens opportunities for them to enter new markets and expand their business potential. Our business was built on the concept of taking complex robotic programming and making it easy. 

 

Offline Robotic Programming – Complex Made Simple

OCTOPUZ is a complete solution that enables users to program and generate robot code offline while visualizing their entire manufacturing process. In addition to its simulation and material handling capabilities, it can generate or import path information from Mastercam for a variety of applications including edge following, material removal and fabrication. OCTOPUZ offers a powerful, flexible and customizable environment where users can program multiple robots simultaneously without interrupting production.

 

Your company will be exhibiting at IMTS, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

The IMTS show is a great opportunity for us to network with all the project stakeholders that we deal with, in one place at one time. This event often results in the discovery of new ways to work synergistically with our partners, both old and news, all while learning about the new exciting direction that manufacturing is heading in.

 

Highlight 2 or 3 products you will be showcasing at the event?

At IMTS we will be showcasing the latest version of OCTOPUZ 2.0.3 released fall 2018. This new release includes improvements to the OCTOPUZ importing capabilities for robot backups and the optimization of the user experience such as the Auto Save, half plane visualization and externals QuickConfig Features.

We will also be presenting the OCTOPUZ VR capabilities – a great sales tool for integrators as a proof of concept for their clients. Why not visualize and walk through your entire robot cell before the real cell is designed and created.

 

IMTS has many educational sessions & Demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?  

OCTOPUZ is not involved in any educational sessions and demos, but our team will be conducting demo’s in our booth of the latest version of OCTOPUZ 2.0.3 and its capabilities.

 

When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?  Any educational sessions you plan on attending?

When the OCTOPUZ team gets a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor, we will be most interested to see the latest technologies being developed by existing or potential new partners.

 

When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

At IMTS we hope to generate new opportunities, build and strengthen partner relationships, and learn about the latest technologies on display at this show.

 

A tradeshow of this magnitude is extremely busy and stressful for the staff of exhibiting companies.  Any fun things or places your team can suggest in Chicago to help unwind?

Nothing beats deep dish pizza and a baseball game!

It’s easy to show a robot being programmed in a matter of minutes inside of a controlled virtual environment. But those programs need to translate to something useful in the real robot cell. The points that the robot will follow need to line up with the part properly.

Real Time Systems - ALL APPLICATIONS ON ONE HARDWARE PLATFORM

Real Time Systems - ALL APPLICATIONS ON ONE HARDWARE PLATFORM

The RTS Hypervisor enables work-load consolidation of both real-time and non-real-time operating systems on a single x86 based platform. Unlike traditional virtualization, we partition and allocate the hardware for each work-load and provide a "privileged" mode for real-time operating systems that guarantee zero impact to determinism while adding zero jitter. This is instrumental for work-loads such as robotic controllers managing motion control where minimum jitter is required. And, our hypervisor is designed for easy setup and configuration for any work-load consolidation scenario. This equates to deterministic real-time applications taking advantage of all the benefits of virtualization immediately, without costly implementation projects.
