Stäubli Completes Offline Development Offering with Visual Components Simulation

A whole range of easy to use tools enable the fast and easy creation of whole robot cells and layouts within minutes.

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.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
