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.

Is your OLRP Implementation Process SMART?
For any Offline Robot Programming solution to be effective, the virtual robot cell set up in the software must be identical to the existing physical robot cell. OCTOPUZ refers to this process as “implementation”.
Virtual to Reality: Delivering Accuracy to The Real World
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.
FABTECH Expo Q&A with OCTOPUZ Inc.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
