Tell us about your company.

OCTOPUZ is an intelligent offline robotic programming and simulation solution ideal for users of all experience levels.

OCTOPUZ is optimized for various manufacturing applications such as welding (arc, spot, etc.), waterjet, plasma, and laser cutting, trimming, deburring, polishing, milling, sanding, grinding, laser cladding, dispensing, painting, and more.

OCTOPUZ is the ideal solution for programming all of your robot brands together easily in the exact same way.

 

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

FABTECH is a very important event for OCTOPUZ as it targets the same attendees as our software user base. Fabrication is the single largest industry utilizing OCTOPUZ software to program robotic applications such as welding, plasma cutting, painting, and more.

 

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

OCTOPUZ will be announcing and demonstrating exciting new features and functionalities included in the next release.

Attendees will see full offline programming and simulation capabilities through live software demos and live robots performing programs generated in OCTOPUZ. The OCTOPUZ team will walk through the entire programming process from importing the CAD geometry of the part to posting the code and running it on a robot.

 

FABTECH has many educational sessions, forums & demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?

OCTOPUZ will be conducting booth demos throughout the show. Attendees will be able to see demos of the new features as well as the features that are most used by our user base that have greatly impacted the way in which they program.

 

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, pavilions etc. you plan on attending?

We are most excited to see the exciting new technologies in the robotics and automation world.

 

3D Printing, Additive Manufacturing is undertaking rapid advancements.  These process hold huge benefits for many manufacturers, give us an idea on how your company and product is being utilized now in the advanced manufacturing.

OCTOPUZ is now being used by many companies that are bringing the 3d printing / additive manufacturing industry to the industrial robotics world. The most recent example is a company down in Florida, USA called 3D Build Systems who are utilizing OCTOPUZ software and a custom industrial robot to provide fast, flexible, and affordable housing with Additive Manufacturing https://www.3dbuildsystems.co/

 

Give us your thoughts on what the future holds for 3D Printing & Advanced Manufacturing.

The future looks very bright for 3D printing and Advanced manufacturing, and the OCTOPUZ team is looking forward to contributing to making these applications easier and quicker to program for industrial robots. Articulated robotic arms increase the flexibility of additive manufacturing applications and due to the typical size of these programs, offline programming software is/will continue to be an essential part of the process.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
