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.

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.
