Teachware & Creating Teachware

Course material is available for each technology. It provides teachers and trainers with the essentials for preparing course curriculum. Automation Studio™ 6.1 offers guides, manuals, lectures, videos and lab notes for all levels of discipline. Unlike other teachware made using multimedia sequences, course content offered by Automation Studio™ 6.1 is interactive and animated live by the software simulation. Teachers can modify this content using Automation Studio™ 6.1 to better fit their needs.

The Creating Teachware module allows defining interactive activities for existing projects and connecting them to other applications. It also can automate repetitive tasks without programming knowledge.

3D HMI Editor & Mechanical Links

Automation Studio™ 6.1 includes a 3D editor for creating and importing 3D parts in STEP, STL and IGES. It is possible to visualize, simulate and animate them, simultaneously, with the technologies that drive the system.
Using the Mechanism Manager, mechanical bodies can be linked to Fluid Power actuators to simulate and animate their effects.

Manufacturers Catalogues

Automation Studio™ 6.1 is the only software solution offering teachers and students an expansive library with thousands of preconfigured components reproducing real world functionalities.

Save time with ready-to-use components from renowned manufacturers.

Component options management

Circuits created with manufacturers parameters

Instant access to updated versions

Each component has been carefully and rigorously bench tested within Automation Studio™ 6.1 to ensure that the simulation meets a manufacturers typical application and performance specifications. The virtual test benches provided also help understanding the components behaviour and validate product selection.

Featured Product



To maximize the productivity of an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) or automatic guided vehicle (AGV) deployment, it's critical to create the optimal environment that allows the vehicles to perform at their peak. For that reason, Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC® (www.resindek.com) created the TriGard® ESD Ultra finish for its ResinDek® engineered flooring panels. The TriGard ESD Ultra finish is ideal for high-traffic robotic applications characterized by highly repetitive movement patterns and defined travel paths.
