OCTOPUZ Software Officially Certified by Universal Robots

OCTOPUZ Inc, an offline programming and simulation software for robotics in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada has been named an official Certified Software for Universal Robots.

OCTOPUZ Inc. is proud to announce that is has officially become a certified software by Universal Robots. This means that OCTOPUZ now carries the seal of guarantee that the product is already employed and running well for end-users. OCTOPUZ is fully supported for the UR3, UR5, and UR10 robots, including simulation and code output. Unique to the OCTOPUZ solution is an offering of full support for the Polyscope controller, with generation of .URP programs, which allows complete control and modification on controller, and supports .SCRIPT programs.


OCTOPUZ is a powerful offline programming and simulation software for the robotics industry. Users are able to create entire robotic programs offline (on a computer) for all robotic applications such as Pick and Place, Dispensing, Buffing/Grinding, Deburring, Trimming, Inspection, 3D Printing, and more. The software also offers automated path solving to avoid potential robot errors such as singularities, joint limits, reach limits, and collisions.

Crum Manufacturing Inc. utilizes OCTOPUZ with Universal Robots, and says "in being a Certified System Integrator of the Universal Robot, many customers want to visualize the application before moving forward with Cobot Technology. Octopuz Software has allowed us to show a 3D conceptual of the application and program offline before fabrication, making Octopuz a powerful tool for our team!" - Juan L. Rodriguez, Automation Engineering Manager for Crum Manufacturing Inc.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
