Stäubli Completes Offline Development Offering with Visual Components Simulation

Visual Components solution offers cost-effective plant layout simulation to Stäubli's clients and partners.

Visual Components and Stäubli Robotics are announcing the launch of the Stäubli Controller Add-on as a milestone of the newly crafted partnership between the Finnish based simulation provider and the Swiss based robot manufacturer.


"Visual Components solution offers cost-effective plant layout simulation to Stäubli's clients and partners, giving them an even bigger advantage in today's market. They can now react even faster to customer demands, designing the robotic solution in very short time and convince them of their solution with the help of realistic 3D simulation." says Mikko Urho, Sales Director, Visual Components.

The Stäubli Controller Add-on connects straight to the CS8 Controller in the Stäubli Robotics Studio allowing the user to create VAL3 programs directly in simulation. A whole range of easy to use tools enable the fast and easy creation of whole robot cells and layouts within minutes. The created robot program can then be downloaded and verified to the CS8 controller or emulator within the Stäubli Robotics Studio.

As a first step to consolidate the partnership between the two major players in the market, Visual Components simulation tools are being introduced to Stäubli Robotics offices. These advanced simulation tools are now available to all customers and system integrators of Stäubli Robotics.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
